*Part 3 – Pragmatic Magic & Astro For Turbulent Times

This is the Mindset & Astro 1 + Astro 2 installment of my Turbulent Times series. Astro 1 is to do with your astro-energies and Astro 2 is more about the near future and its timeline. Part 1 – Threats, Opportunities, Health & Wealth is here. And Part Two – Magic – is here. Part 4 is Ancestors and the Great Conjunction – Age of Aquarius.

Mindset

If you are interested in how we got here, zip back to Part One and the posts that I link to in there. Otherwise, our starting point is that we’re at the beginning of a new epoch and while none of the people reading this will be that surprised, the velocity is breath-taking.

If you remember the Saturn Time/Uranus Time post, you will recognize this as Uranus time, also known as Einstein time. Normal time, with all its orderly rhythms, is suspended and not just because of the lock-down/viral mitigation measures.

The Ancient Greeks and Romans had two Time Gods – Chronos (like Saturn) and Kairos (Uranian.) I’m not mentioning this because I want to waffle on about mythology: grokking this concept is now key to your competitive edge.

Muse on this line from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar for a moment:

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea are we now afloat.
And we must take the current when it serves,
or lose our ventures.

It’s easy to crap on about being extraordinary when the times are ordinary. But in extraordinary times, most people scale back the artistry and inventiveness, because it doesn’t feel ‘safe.’ Or they become utterly unmoored and drift into dark-water Neptune pursuits; cults & addictions.

They think they can fend off Kairos and Uranian energy by doubling down on old-era values: the races, traditional celebrations or foods, the monotheistic religion they were raised in, class barriers or traditional politics. At the moment, conditions prevent this becoming obvious but when we’re allowed out again, you’ll notice it everywhere.

Yet the coming energy is Pluto in Aquarius, from 2023 until 2044. That is not a typo. Pluto, usually in a sign for approximately 12 years, is spending 20 years in Aquarius. That’s what this is heading toward. Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius from December, to light the way. I don’t care who thought the Age of Aquarius was in the Sixties – this is it.

So here are 11 mindset tips – the health/money ones are in part One, though these may touch on them. Some may be annoying –  take what resonates!

(1) Morph your attitude from being a person who adapts to change into someone who creates change. You summon it up from the aether. Inventing new ways to make things happen is your new chill. You are formulaic but it’s a magic formula and you adjust it every 2nd Moon. Jessica Snow’s Lightning Rod meditation is fantastic for enhancing this aspect of your mind.

(2) You can successfully live in a society that’s behind the times if you don’t merge your consciousness with it. Select your company and data wisely.

(3) The political representation movement as you know it is dying – direct democracy enabled by rapid digital tech dev is the future. Defining yourself as ‘a Liberal’ or a ‘whatever’ is passe, lazy and an energy suck. Yes, vote but think beyond that.

(4) Don’t be weirded about by solitude or people you know/friends segueing into naive passivity, conservative social attitudes or accelerated drifting apart. Turbulent times are like a psychic version of the factory reset. I expect to see a new kind of a Scientology-like religion emerge and take off. It will have elements of rightness but also be fully whack and controlling. If your friends and family succumb, they’ll dismiss you as a lower density being. Start now caring about this sort of thing now.

Don’t Cast Change As ‘Something Big’ You’ll Do Later

(5) Don’t cast change as the ‘something big’ you’ll do later. The only way to future-proof is to alter things all the time. If you’re Uranian (strong in Aquarius or Uranus energy), you know this dance: you’re existentially anxious and stifled right before the change cue. Then you zap into whatever the morph is. It only looks irrational from the outside. But really, it’s like an earth-lightning symbiosis. Lightning strikes are never random – it looks for matching energy in the ground.

(6) Micro changes generate Macro energy shifts and awareness. Even if it is just changing your brand of vacuum cleaner or certain social media follows, you’re repatterning your brain. Neuroplasticity is everything.

(7) Give up on the signaling and guilting. Telling someone they can’t talk about how they feel or where they’re at with something because others are worse off is just a modern version of puritan shut-down. Your job is to stay healthy, wealthy, magic and safe – not prove your ‘goodness’ to unappointed moral police people. Everyone has their struggles, we all have compassionate causes we care about and contribute to when we can, nobody is perfect.

(8) Magic is real and the Uranian era is going to be excellent for it. There is always value to be gleaned from ancient texts or a well-defined philosophy but create your own practice. It’s a style of awareness, not a liturgy that you need to know by rote.

(9) The only competitive edge now is in speed-learning and that includes not slowing your mind down by pretending to conform. If someone wants to play ‘back to normal’ by November games, they can get their own sandpit. Hang out with them and before you know it, you’ll hear yourself rambling on about some job, partner, social status or event that you apparently now want. It’s Phantom Deficit Syndrome and the virus should have cured it. Your voice will sound strangely hollow because part of you has astral traveled out of your body to not be associated with the shit you’re talking.

At Least The Virus Cured Phantom Deficit Syndrome

(10) Scenarios where you can’t do as you want and have security concerns – income or living arrangements you’re not comfortable with – generate stress. Give yourself the gift of scientific-detached objectivity with this. It is stress – which you know how to handle because you have handled it before – and it’s temporary. As you may have noticed, things change more quickly in a time of Kairos. Being productive and ingenious is good for you and no matter what happens, it certainly can’t hurt.

(11) D.I.Y. is very Uranus in Taurus and fantastically empowering. If you’re fixing/doing things you would have previously out-sourced, be proud. What if instead of something being ‘wrong’ – which is how our systems can interpret change, something is right? Look for the liberation portal – it’s there and growing.

Astro 1

There are two aspects of your natal chart that are super-relevant to now. The first is the planet that rules your 6th house. This is classically associated with your health and constitution. So you will need your natal chart for this and to find or know the sign on the border of the 6th house. See below for the rulerships but don’t interpret this stringently.

Rather, think about the energy and principles of that planet – or Sun/Moon – and the characteristics of the sign. Within that contemplation is a unique and magically super-charged wellness insight. Don’t be afraid to simplify it into a neat little theory. Waffling and fluff never made anything more profound. Turn into an equation.

For example, my 6th house is Cancer, ruled by the Moon in the 9th. My Moon in Libra is being squared by Saturn from the 12th all year. Cancerian 6th house energy is deeply habitual, an emotional eater and holder of grudges that an Airy Moon in the 9th doesn’t even acknowledge. Solve your 6th house ruler riddle and you’re way ahead. This Moon needs balance and for food/health/exercise to be in a broader philosophical construct. Saturn squaring means more consequences for going out of balance – it’s been a year of insane sensitivity to anything even slightly unmeasured.

Another example: Sagittarius 6th house with Jupiter the ruler in the 11th house, in Taurus. Jupiter here is the entertainer and desires a large social circle. It’s great but Saggo 6th house is the epitome of ‘needs constant motion’ and Jupiter is more of a banqueter. This is a person who would literally thrive through blending social needs with something where they’re in the open air and moving fast. Yes, it’s a running group. They don’t need to make flexibility a priority as that’s probably a strong area already. But without cardio + open-air, this placement seizes up and starts psycho-googling for supplements.

Also Vital: your natal Mars.

Mars is your ‘going gets tough’ mate. Your natal Mars is how you respond to threats or take advantage of opportunities. It’s your stamina and defense tactics, how you motivate others and what you tell yourself at 4 am in the morning when you think you’ve fuqed everything up. So look at your natal Mars, its house and aspects. If you don’t know them, they are all in Astral DNA.

Currently, your Mars strengths and weaknesses will be coming to the fore. Mars in Virgo people (*waves) are good at pattern recognition but how bad is it when you go totally off track to blitz a minor task or obsessively research details that possibly don’t warrant that much time? You need your Mars Vibe now – know its assets and liabilities so you can deploy it to the best effect. Mars in Leo is brilliant at inspirational speeches and noble gestures but slows pace by second-guessing the optics of their moves. By the time they’ve got the soundtrack and wardrobe right or feel ‘ready’, the moment has passed.

Astro 2

I am going to talk about this more in Part 4 but Jupiter/Saturn conjunct right before Xmas starts a new era. Yes, another one. 2020 is unique in that Saturn/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto, and Jupiter/Saturn all occur in one year. It means that the part of your natal birth chart between 20 Capricorn and 5 Aquarius is exceptional for success, metaphysics, self-mastery, and prosperity. If you focus on these areas or even do little maps of them and journal your observations, you will come up with statis-busting, invigorating ideas, guaranteed.

Finally, I think that in terms of the virus, the astro has two leading indicators.

(1) It began with Saturn-Pluto – they were in orb of their conjunction from last November – and now Saturn is in Aquarius. The situation looks to be improving in multiple places and there is talk of relaxing the lockdown. If they are not personally affected by this or working their arse off in a frontline job, many people feel a bit less freaked about this than they were.

But if I were to go purely on the astrology (not the virology, which I know nothing about, lol), I would say that it would be back with extra bite in July. That’s when Saturn backs into Capricorn until Xmas. Not only that, but Mars will also be in Aries from July until January 2021. It’s great for individual self-determination but it also means Mars squares Saturn and Pluto three times in a row over August until January 2021.

So expect a second wave of the virus and/or for the geopolitical tensions generated by the situation to spike. Remember, the bubble economy was always going to burst and a Uranus in Taurus economy/society has fantastic potential. And the situation as it stood had tectonic fault lines. Good things will come out of this but maximize now till July to buffer your immune system and beam some agile, Uranian type ingenuity toward your business and work vibe.

Thoughts?

Rulerships:
Aries – Mars
Taurus – Venus
Gemini – Mercury
Cancer – The Moon
Leo – The Sun
Virgo – Mercury – some say Vesta
Libra – Venus
Scorpio – Pluto or Mars if you’re old-school
Sagittarius – Jupiter
Capricorn – Saturn
Aquarius – Uranus
Pisces – Neptune

Saturn in Pisces

“Mars in Leo is brilliant at inspirational speeches and noble gestures but slows pace by second-guessing the optics of their moves. By the time they’ve got the soundtrack and wardrobe right or feel ‘ready’, the moment has passed.”

Jaw DROPPED. Sun conjunct my Mars in Leo today and the “right wardrobe/soundtrack” element… eerie, so accurate.

Gabries

My 6th house is in Capricorn; I have Saturn in it at 24° along with Neptune and Uranus in Cap too! I had my exact Saturn return a few days around the Saturn/Pluto conjunction. I spent the whole year of 2019, preparing my wedding and transforming my body and mind with home workouts and intuitive eating. I got the revenge abs! I also got promoted at work, but the new hirees are Qi vampires, though. Now I am doing what I like, working from home because of the pandemic and away from all the drama. My husband is a quadruple… Read more »

‘If you’re Uranian (strong in Aquarius or Uranus energy), you know this dance: you’re existentially anxious and stifled right before the change cue. Then you zap into whatever the morph is. It only looks irrational from the outside.

You utterly nailed this Mystic – happening for me right now (Uranus conjunct Sun)

Alex

Yeah, this makes so much sense to me, all of it. As fir this ‘how bad is it when you go totally off track to blitz a minor task or obsessively research details that possibly don’t warrant that much time?’ – bang on, also Mars in Virgo and it is SO easy for me to get sidetracked (actually even right now I am sidetracked, but in a good way). So much to contemplate here. I fully expect a second wave too – it’s inevitable with looney toons like the Trumpster relaxing the shelter in place stuff too fast, what the… Read more »

Thanks for these useful tips! 6th house Cancer. Natal moon is conjunct Mercury in the 3rd house. Natal Mars (Leo) in the 6th house trines natal Mercury (Aries) in the 3rd Transit Pluto and Jupiter in the 12th squaring moon in the 3rd I’ve been trying to write a novel and have been switching between enthusiasm and serious doubt over whether or not its realistic to keep going with it. Apart from the writing, there is a lot of research and other work involved. On top of this, the story is moving and shifting around dramatically. Cue an online astro… Read more »

Ahh this is so interesting. I’ve been thinking about my Uranus-ruled Aqua 6th house, as Saturn has just arrived. Venus lives there, conj Ceres and the Dsc. Uranus is in my first and makes many aspects: conj Pluto and Mars, opp Sun-Saturn-Merc and Chiron, and trine my MC. Does this make me Uranian? How this affects my sixth house is unclear to me. I’ll have to think more about it. Perhaps it means that my sixth house related stuff needs to be expressed as part of my identity? Complete reinvention of my daily habits?? I’ve been so restless lately, reinvention… Read more »

Bit bifuddled by my own 6th house riddle.. 6th house Gemini (plus Mars), Mercury is in Aries in 3rd. Both planets are in mutual reception and in a very tight sextile. (Less than 1 degree.)

The answer is…writing, and expressing myself? I type up one page of whatever’s on my mind every night before I go to bed (handwriting slows me down). I find this clears out the cobwebs and leads to much easier sleep and overall wellbeing. Mercury in Aries= I need to articulate my anger/passion to stay healthy? (Libra Moon is cringing right now.)

Cardinal Qween

Thanks Mystic, really helpful! 😊

I LOVE Mystic Medusa!
Just so I can see if I’m doing this correctly (novice here ;))…
6th House Cusp is Scorpio
Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and/or Mars…I look for a message within these…?
I’m so new to this but fascinated! Thank you for any insight guys!

Mars in Gemini
Mars in 12th House
Mars square Jupiter
Mars opposition Neptune
Mars twine Pluto
Mars conjunct Ascendant

wow thanks for the response Mystic!

Shooooo…I’ve got Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn ALL chilling between 20 Capricorn and 5 Aquarius, and ALL in the 12th house. Any useful insight for that?

Mysticcaitlin

Loving these reports. I’ve printed them out and and going through my astral DNA to do my homework and incorporate as much of this advice as I can. My Mars is in Leo and my 6th house’s planet is Jupiter, and my 6th house is also in Aries. Checking to see if I’ve got the hang of what this means: action (Mars= Aries, and so my Leo Mars= is using all my shiny-firey mojo in the actions I undertake/ begin/ changes I make/ create), and having Jupiter in my 6th house (My Natal Jupiter is in Pisces- but rules Sag?)… Read more »

JupiterRuled

6th house (Taurus) ruler is Venus (Libra) which is where my stellium is (10th w/ Jupiter and Saturn all sext my Asc in Sag). I’m fairly certain it’s go time with my art/photography work – time for disciplined execution toward the goal.

la_mer

virgo rising here, so 6th house is Aquarius and ruled by Uranus/Saturn which are both in the 4th house of Sag. Who said I can’t work from home and start a revolution from my bed (thanks John & Yoko)
so working (6h house) from home (4th house) while revolutionizing (Uranus) old structures (Saturn) 😀

Wish Upon a Star

I have Mars in Libra in the 8th house opposite Saturn in Aries 2nd house. And these both square Mercury in Cancer in the 4th house. Making a trine in red?

I have read elsewhere that Saturn in Aries is difficult. Is that true?

Can someone tell me what this all means please?

Wish Upon a Star

p.s. My Mars has progressed to Scorpio. Explains why I am into astrology now. And very self reliant. Except when it comes to astro queries, LOL.🙂

milleunanotte

Also, it’s a perfect astro time to pleasure and explore further and more personally, if you can first work out the net safety protocols, plus most likely, some established femme-sites and providers.

Wish Upon a Star

Are you talking about what I think you are talking about Millie. Please elaborate I’m not shy.

Wish Upon a Star

Sorry about this stupid question. It was innocent I was a bit befuddled yesterday. I get it now although yesterday I thought it was something entirely different. LOL.

milleunanotte

Figure out your 6th house cusp ruler first, if you can, Wish. Then work with that ruling planet. 6th is healng natural cycle of Gaia and the beautiful Maiden energy, operating in your daily timetable of being. She’s awesome, almost clinically nursing what needs healing, and yet cool hands caring and gentle. Why Mars, straight away, hon? May i honestly say, i cannot currently see Saturn ANYWHERE as marvellously easy. It will always be difficult. Saturn is the challenge of the undone, the piece of shit that needs sorting, the sacrifice for the betterment that initially seems a long time… Read more »

Wish Upon a Star

Thanks Millie I did tackle 6th house first (scroll down for notes). My 6th house is ruled by Leo ,no planets except for Asteroid Pshyce in Virgo. There are no aspects? My Sun is in Gemini in the 4th house.

I kind of understand 6th house and Mars separately but cannot make a story of the connection. Any ideas Millie, anyone.

Thanks for the Saturn advice.

firecow

This is fabulous – so many aha moments. I’ll have a go with my 6th house analysis: ruled by virgo (but empty) leads me to mercury, which is in gemini, 3rd house. i can be head dominated (i also have a libran moon) and i like lots of information, proof and freedom from dogma in health matters. I don’t like diets or lifestyles that feel like religion etc. The best thing i can do for myself is to do something that takes me into my body, and short cuts the analysis. Yoga and walking is perfect. Daily is ideal.

Sagittaurean

6th House Taurus, ruled by 7th house Gemini Venus. Health that requires stability and self-worth and sovereignty, when Venus in the 7th really only desires partnership. I have been isolated, living by myself, lost my job and not handling it in a healthy way, as of late. Still trying to turn it around. Would love any insight that anyone has for me that I may have missed!

Wintry

Anyone have any ideas about when the sixth house is in one sign and the ruler of that is in the sixth house too? (E.g. my sixth house is in Gemini and Mercury is there too). Thanks 😊

Wintry

Too true, Mystic. Sums up my work life too. Will read up 🙂 Loving the Kairos/Chronos learning too here. Thanks for that.

anpan

I love this post. Thank you for helping the world stay sane! I have a lot to think about – I’m not sure I’ve figured out my 6th house puzzle. Libra 6th, Venus in Gem 1st. I do like variety in food and exercise, and vanity definitely helps motivate me… haha. I prefer exercising in nature or somewhere pretty and not just functional (like my cold, questionably-finished spidery basement). Traditional gyms repel me. I feel like I’ve figured out my Mars a bit more. My Mars is conjunct Saturn in my Libra 6th. When the going gets tough… just take… Read more »

daniellephant

My brain is scrambling trying to figure this out… I love it! My 6th house is Gemini (ruled by Mercury) x Taurus (ruled by Venus). Natal Venus was in Gemini and natal Mercury was in Taurus. I also had the Moon and asteroids Chaos, Diana, Lust and Atlantis in my 6th house. The biggest themes that are popping up for me are love for nature (sadly, currently stuck with limited ability to spend time in nature). I’m also completing a teaching degree. Lots of themes around words, learning, meditation, patience, , building, creating, and listening. My natal Mars was in… Read more »

Electro

Aries ruled 6th with SN. Mars in Gemini in the 8th trine Pluto. Here I go again attemptIng to interpret my 8th house. Oh and Mars is opposite my moon so that’s fun too. Constant feed on the urge to deconstruct and transform.

Skarab

Hail there fellow Aries 6th H (& SN too). I can’t help but think that your Mars/6th H has the hallmark of an excellent sex therapist, or if you missed that calling how about becoming a Tantric Master…. you would probably enjoy tantric yoga (not talking tantric sex, though with Venus now in the 8th for a verrry long time …..) 😉 xx

Electro

Meow! That’s quite an interpretation. I have not tried tantric yoga but I should take your advice! I hope you are well, Skarab 😘

Skarab

I am, thank you Electro, tho it’s all wearing a bit thin now. I hope you are well too 💜

ACK! Help? Anyone? I should know more after years of subscribing but I don’t!!

Capricorn + Aquarius bridge the 5th and 6th houses for me, heading right into my North/True Node at 29 Aquarius/6th house (got Aqua moon too).

My 4th house is Sag and packed with 5 planets including sun. Anyone? Help.

Uranus rules aquarius so here’s hoping there’s a weird fab turn after the last. 5 years of rough Saturnine learning

milleunanotte

The line of the pie slice that is the righthand side of 5th and the left edge of 6th is what you want to look at. Does that line fall in Capricorn, while the rest of the slice has Aquarius?

joolz

Yes. There’s about 15 degrees of Aquarius within the 6th, rest is Cap. Thanks for responding!

R(Aqua/Tauri)

My 6th house is Libra, ruled by Venus in (what else) the 8th. It is really gd hard to interpret so much of my chart because I’ve got three planets in the 8th house and two in the 12th. It’s been talked about a lot on here about how so many astrologers especially in olden days are like YOU’RE GONNA DIE or just go on about how you have mystical powers when I’m just like okay but what does this mean for my career and sanity lol. Would appreciate thoughts on how to interpret the health thing for me because… Read more »

Libra is also Justice and Fairness, so your rage is completely understandable, but you may need to use Beauty, Scent, Fashion, creating any sense of Luxe with few means (i am so sorry about the money situ) and being in Relationship (enjoying any simple connections and conversations) to bring your mind into balance, and remove physical stress of anger. I say this with all four of my Mars squares and two t-squares…i have felt my heart react physically when i am in rage, which is often emotional pain. I love that you noticed your Mars in Aries can get things… Read more »

R(Aqua/Tauri)

Omg the Justice and Fairness thing with Libra related to a VERY 8th house issue I probably shouldn’t discuss here definitely is relevant for me right now, if not for my physical health for my mental health. I have already set the ball in motion to take action on this and it should be kicking off officially soon. Wow my mind is blown.

milleunanotte

8th house is Sex, and not yours alone, it’s Power Exchange. Someone has freaked it all the way out, in a way you do never deserve, BECAUSE you are so lovely and sweet. 2nd house is your body, money, self worth and quiet base for the power. Un-muddy as best you can, that 8th soiling with pure Venusian self-care. You can find Mars a bit later.

Skarab

Hi R, don’t know if you read my rant on the Heart below, but i talk about exactly this – connecting to your heart. I have a fairly activated Mars and have also been feeling some rage – but connecting to the heart ALWAYS helps. And it is not woo-woo at all. Some heart specialists & hospitals use biofeedback techniques to help their patients with stress related heart problems and for post heart surgery care. Basically you’re taught meditation & relaxation techniques while attached to electronic devices that measure heart rate, blood volume changes, etc. So if you are scientifically… Read more »

R(Aqua/Tauri)

There is a woman named Karen Lorre who talks about this and has some good meditations about how meditating on the heart literally where it is located physically and also on the emotions associated with it can be very profound! I think I feel defensive about it because my heart is crushed so when yogis are like “open your heart” I would be like but I can’t lol. But I am doing a lot of the visualization stuff related to all the chakras including the heart and it is helping!!

Skarab

There’s something that i should clear up, because i’ve been very sloppy in not using capital letters when referring to the Heart Centre or Chakra, which is very different from the organ heart. The chakras are intricate *energy* centers – not the physical organs themselves. Each chakra is paired with an endocrine gland & energetically governs its function. The Heart Chakra governs the thymus gland which secretes hormones that regulate the immune system. In addition to this gland, the Heart Chakra also energetically governs the heart & the lungs. So when you meditate on the Heart Chakra, you are encompassing… Read more »

Fantastic post Mystic! Yet again. I have true node and Chiron in my 6th. Any clues? I’ll take a look see in my DNA report maybe.

Yep I totally agree that ‘back to business because the footy’s not on’ is a foolishly wild ‘Trumpism’ hopefully this will be a Darwinian survival of the fittest scenario? I’m bunkering down and need to do some study around neo-liberalism and economics… that’s my vibe… so Mystic, you’re spot on again! Thank you… M x

Great post Mystic. Love love love. Your talk of time made me think of the clock piece by Stuart Ringholt at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. My 6th is ruled by Venus and it’s in the 5th. Art is HUGE for me and even more so now. I’ve decided to pick up the guitar again, finish a novel I was writing, and even though we’re basically in lockdown when I have gone out the flirting is off the charts. So I guess business as usual if not a little more fantastic. Uranus is currently approaching my Venus and… Read more »

Hm… 6th house Virgo, with Mercury in my 4th in Cancer.

My Mars is also in the 4th in Cancer. Interestingly enough. (With Aries rising, so I always feel that Mars a bit everywhere, it seems.)

All the homey home things…

Alouetta

I have Virgo on the cusp of my 6th house which makes it either Mercury or Vesta right? Hmmm Mercury makes me think of running. Maybe it’s those winged feet. Or just doing something different everyday. Vesta seems like she’d be into herbal teas and hanging at home. I could do both??
Mars in Taurus in the 2nd – that’s my long game.

WizarDora

Aquarius is natal 6th house and Uranus rules 11th; (did I do that right?)

so confused right now, feel slightly nauseous.. there is a reason I am not an astrologer 😉

>>health, work, daily stuff versus need for tribe? aka, be in groups. Also, mars taurus; don’t burn out from all the excitement and glittery new things?? I’m really not sure. Have installed a daily nap practice, does the count?

Saggo ruled 6th house (where my sun and Neptune are), Jupiter in the 7th in Capricorn, so the Jupiter/ Pluto, Jupiter/ Saturn vibes feel super personal and liberating to me! I have Saturn in Gemini opposite my Sun, so I’ve been doing Saturn my entire life. I also have Mars in Scorpio squaring my Moon in Aquarius, which trines my Uranus in Libra and Gemini Ascendant (Grand Air Trine). Seriously it feels like I’ve been in training and waiting for this my entire life.

milleunanotte

Saturn opposed your Sun! But you have these Aqua, Libra, Gem powers to fly, too. My Pluto is opposed my Sun, and it drives down into the underground. But goddesses! One of those dry, dour, sour and bitter teachers shadowing your Sun! Good luck and goddess’ blessings.

milleunanotte

A sister who understands! Thank you for your blessings, and I am sending them your way too. The Saturn Pluto Sun lessons are core and inescapably deep huh!? Absolutely nothing comes easy, yes. Since I was born Pluto, and in the last eight years Saturn too, have been moving through my 5th house stellium of Mars, Venus, Mercury, Juno and Ceres in the 5th, then across my Neptune and Sun in the 6th, then over my NN and Jupiter in the 7th. It’s been profoundly hard and seriously life threatening (6th house health!), but I’m as tough and insightful as… Read more »

Mystic, i want to thank you deeply for your members’ Pragmatic Magic help, comfort, wisdom and mind body soul healthy insights. So much at this time. But also for sharing your human rabbit-holing into research spirals. You are not some self hyped ‘guru’ at all. You are real, tremendously loving to do this. Thank you so much. The Personal Dailies are absolute art of high alchemical order xxxxxx

Wow Mystic!!! I just love all this!! Thanks for sharing your journey of discovery. I’ve been obsessed with the I Ching since I was 22, and also with Egyptian mythology, Isis, Bast, and the Hathors especially, and just the last few days researching Hermes Mercury Thoth in relationship to sound (I’m Gem rising so Mercury is my ruling planet). I can’t wait to read more on this. Your work is a torch through these times of change. I’m so grateful!

Saturn rules my 6th and Saturn is in my 6th. There’s a stellium there with Sun Neptune mercury Uranus and Saturn…pallas athene and hecate right next my very Capricorn sun. Life has left me no choice but to make good friends with Saturn. As it is I’ve been waking up early every day, following a raw vegan diet, and keeping on a strict exercise plan.

Aqualady

I very much relate to the missing your routine if you skip a day and being strict. Almost like a stickler for the rules. Even though our charts are very different I figured this was the result of Sun and Saturn in the 6th.

mooninthe12th

<3 glad you can relate!

Saturn co-rules Aquarius and the 6th is our virgoan house of routines, service to others, and health. Work, wellness, and cleanliness are some of my obsessions lol. It gives me such a sense of control over my life that feels comforting. Saturn must be pretty cozy here….as cozy as Saturn can get anyway.

Invicta

This is fascinating to me. I’m a Virgo sun with a 12th house moon and an “interesting “ relationship with Saturn. It feels karmic and quite dysfunctional since it squares my sun, my moon and my mars. They also square each other so bit of natal cluster fudge tbh but I’m unrelentingly optimistic (Jupiter rising) anyway the thing that intrigues me is your relationship with Saturn in the 6th and being so happy with routine. I’m interested to know if that’s a recent development or have you always been able to do routine and love it? I feel like I’m… Read more »

**trained** ought to read Trined but I’m into the Freudian autocorrect thing. Ducking, for instance has been a liberating word to embrace. For years I’ve gotten annoyed and changed the d to an f while literally cursing autocorrect (the irony) and one day it occurred to me that perhaps the word was perfect all along. Now I use it in everyday speech. Back to trained vs trined. I’ve gone off on a tangent. You see my trouble with Saturn….

Skarab

The thought of the NN as trainer makes perfect sense to me: “Oy, come on you lot, pick up pace! Sun -THIS way! Jupiter, you lead.. whoa, steady on..! Venus, that’s nice, keep it up darlin… Saturn, turn down the blocking a notch, mate! We want to get there this lifetime. Mars, don’t be such a dick! …Come on every one, keep it up! Ok Mars, give me 150 squats!… Moon!… where’s Moon?.. Anyone seen Moon?!

Astro jealousy! Haha. Well keep in mind time is key with Capricorns. Our successes come over time and the illusion of “togetherness” is something I work very hard to maintain. I’ve come a very long way. I used to be a night owl who could sleep the day away (not that there’s anything wrong with that! But I can’t get past that it’s bad for me). While id love to be there’s just shit I wanna do. And my mind and body paid the price. Saturn = learn the hard way right? Time to grow up. I now view health… Read more »

One small note: asceticism is pure 12th house. They used to call it prisons, madness, self-undoing. Also i have Leo MC, and pretty sure you know about all my Sag (12th Neptune, Jupiter, Moon conjunct and Rising on exact fixed star Antares).

You make so many juicy points. Where to begin! I agree it must do with my 12th which is a major aspect of who I am. My solar return rising for this year is Pisces! I’m always led back here. This time of year is usually very withdrawn and solitude driven since the activity in my 12th picks up so much. I’ve come to thrive in it – and importantly, appreciate it. Self undoing…at times yes. Mental health issues are no stranger to me. I have been depressed and anxious much of my life, especially as a teen but now… Read more »

This is so helpful @12thHouse moon! Thank you. 🙏🏻
I love these suggestions and the Saggo moon rising gets all excited seeing the big picture and it is the missing piece of the puzzle I was asking for. How else can Saturn’s seemingly unreasonable demands make any sense?
This is absolutely golden. Thank you.

Lux Interior Is My Co-Pilot

The whole concept of Uranian time has felt SO relevant lately! Makes sense

GemLeoLib

Love this! pisces on my 6th with Neptune in my 3rd. A little hard to decipher, but I generally feel better when my daily routine involves connections with other people. pisces as my 6th house ruler always scared me a little because it is not a classically strong sign for health. But I see it as giving me life when I can be in the emotional service to others. Anyone else have pisces on the 6th? I would be curious to see what your super charged wellness insight is!
Thanks Mystic!!!!

CKarenya

With Pisces on your 6th house cusp and Neptune in third house i would posit that your emotional and spiritual health are paramount and closely linked. So focusing on meditation via a group online while being careful not to get caught up in group think/fears/fantasies/conspiracy theories would allow you to give and receive spiritual and emotional support. A trusted group I hasten to add. Steer clear of whackos.

gbs

I have Neptune in the 6th, so in the same family as your configuration. The downside for me has been susceptibility to allergies and spells of low energy. The upside is a pretty consistent intuition about what my body needs to heal itself, an abiding interest in herbal and flower remedies, and a love of healing meditation/visualization/prayer.

ETA: Also challenges with a sluggish lymphatic system.

Pegasus

WOW. Have become very interested in Astrology lately 🙂
This is so concise comprehensible and sensible.
Am quite excited by Uranus in my 6th and Aqua Lilith in !st.
Much to look up and grok.
Thank you, this is brilliant, but what are you doing being up at 4am?

HI mystic- would love your thoughts. for astro 1, my 6th house is in aries (where i have sun and mercury) and my mars is in cancer in the 8th house and since you mentioned both the important i would love your interpretation around how to best equip myself during these times.

Lili

Aries on 6th: fight or flight mode motivates best with retro Gem Mars in 7th. Hard to do focus and do tools down Mars. Loads of negotiating-networking.

MutatisMutandis

great post Mystic – just one question about this comment: You are formulaic but it’s a magic formula and you adjust it every 2nd Moon

Is that every new moon or full moon? or every other complete moon cycle of new and full moon?

cynthia

Ok that is interesting – like if the moon is in fire sign, 2 moons on it is in air; If moon is in earth, 2 moons on it is in water; if it is air, 2 moons on it is in fire; if it is in water, 2 moons on it is in earth. Alternating pairs of masculine and feminine elements, in a cyclical pattern. Magic for me is alchemy – turning lead into gold. The reconciliation of the opposites – here, masculine and feminine. Very interesting to ponder on this. How did you arrive at this 2 moons… Read more »

Thanks for sharing so generously all of your tips and insights, Mystic! I’d been hanging out for this 3rd instalment. 😊 Just for the record, nothing is annoying in the slightest – bring it all on!

The DIY astro activity is revealing…gosh…my Capricorn moon in the 6th ruled by Saturn in Virgo in the 2nd, which squares my ADHD-like mars and mercury conjunct in Sagg. Plenty to sit and meditate upon right there.

It’s PM now and earlier had thought how generous of her.
Generosity is such a gift to have and we are receiving the benefits.
DIY after 16 years am just starting to have some penny drops, nah light bulbs going off:-)

Hi Peg! There is ALWAYS more we can learn, isn’t there? Astrology is like a gift that never stops giving. And yes we’re all super lucky to be receiving all of this from Mystic. Hope you’re staying safe and sane xo

it is such a relief to read such cool minded sanity. I exhaled deeply and felt bigger on the inside reading this post. Having been alone – unsurprisingly it’s not as if I can blame feeling flighty and scattered on anyone else. I didn’t realise how much the inner muggle-logue was harrassing me.
Thank you as always Mystic, you absolute goddess of pragmatic clarity!

So much good stuff in here. It will take me a while to digest everything. Thanks for the link to Jessica Snow. As a double Taurus I downloaded her meditation to connect with/learn from plants, but I’ll try out the Lightning one too. The ruler of my 6th house is Venus in Libra in the 5th. I think this placement has an affinity with the Temperance card, ie, nothing in excess, everything in moderation, finding healing in that which is beautiful and balanced. My Mars is in Capricorn, and Pluto and Saturn spent extended sojourns on it during the course… Read more »

Newbie question – the border of my sixth house is in Leo, but most of it is taken up by Virgo.
So do I follow these directions for Sun (Leo) or Mercury (Virgo)?

I’m hoping Mercury since he IS in Virgo and Vesta is my patron goddess of my business.

Anonymous Chart.PNG
rubedo

While virgo takes up most of the house, Leo is the ruler so you would look to you sun for the exercise.
Buuuuut the sixth house is naturally ruled by virgo(mercury). So mebbe do the exercise for both keeping Leo findings in the forefront

CKarenya

Leo is your 6th house cup, so then look at your Sun in Libra (if my squinty view is correct). It’s what is on the house division (cusp) that is most relevant here. Balance and relationships (Libra) are key to your sense of self (sun) and therefore your health.

Ale

This is great! But what if you have a stelliumin your chart- in the 6th house? I have the sun, north. node, Mercury, Venus and Neptune packed in there? It’s ruled by Sagittarius- Not sure how to interpret?

Scorpleocap

Wow, what a stellium! With this stellium in Saggitarius and Saggitarius being ruled by Jupiter, you need to look to where Jupiter is in your natal chart. Which house, which sign and is it squaring/aspecting anything? The flavour of your Jupiter will help you understand the energies of your 6th house stellium, what might block/help your stellium, which is basically a very large part of YOU, being such a big stellium. Hope that helps somewhat. You could look at your Jupiter placement as generally being a big influence on you, or you could break it down more specifically about how… Read more »

Omg- thank you for this. Going do the work on it right now. Big long distance hug – I am very grateful.

6th house starts with Leo and my sun is in 5th cancer. Go big or go home I think !

emg

Wow mystic you’ve certainly put the time in with this lot. Loads to consider and awaiting plenty of zaps for respond to. And this for me is all 11th house. Talk about change.

Wish Upon a Star

EMG my 6th starts with Leo also. Takes up 2/3rd of the house. Go big definitely. Then Virgo does her but make sure you dot your I’s and square your I’s which makes me feel secure and happy.

I also have Pshyce in Virgo in the 6th but no other planets. Nataly it makes no aspects. I will have a look at my transit and progressed chart.

emg

I’ve got quite a bit in my 6th which extends a long way into Virgo. So I have a mercury in Leo but a Pluto Uranus conjunction in Virgo on the DC.

libraquarian

We have almost an identical 6th house setup – except my 9th house moon is in Scorpio instead of Libra. Water, water and more water. I have noticed that strong emotions and obsessions inspire my health and wellness ventures, though I have become better at identifying false gurus and snake oil as I get older.

As for Mars, I’m not too sure. Mine is in 8th house Libra (straightforward, diplomatic but confrontational, raw but refined), squaring Saturn. What would a Saturn square mean right now? Granite vision?

libraquarian

Oh and let’s not forget both Lilith and Saturn at 0 degrees Aqua – yes I have the distinct honor of being tempered through my Saturn return during a global pandemic and economic collapse, thankyouverymuch.

Wish Upon a Star

So my 6th house is ruled by Leo, the Sun. My Sun is in Gemini in the 4th house.

Any suggestions as to what this means anyone?

Tonight I started my step back to good health by making the biggest batch of vegetable soup (like mum used to make). It is slow cooking as I write.

But I channel my culinary creativity from my sweet dad. He was a cook in the Navy in 2nd World War. Very fussy about his food. He was a Gemini Sun like me but with a Cancer Moon.

libraquarian

You answered your own question! The 4th house deals with issues of home and lineage. Your health is probably tied to feeling “at home” and having a powerful base that supports all the energy I bet you have from such a strong sun placement.

Wish Upon a Star

It definitely is: correct. I now have a strong base yes : in nature. I get vital help from my passed over ancestors. And I don’t have to worry about social distancing. LOL.

Thanks libraaquarian.

Crystallised future

Item 2 and 4 – I’ve been eliminating or challenging people who I have found challenging for the last 2 years or so and dropping them like flies – so fast, so abruptly I’ve been wondering if I’m getting above myself. I can blame cancer treatment that has been ongoing for 18 months or so now with another 3 and half to go, but there seems to something more to it. It’s like I’m clearing the deck for I don’t know who or what

Also, I find myself idly researching how to promote myself as a personalised astrologer when what I am meant to be doing is researching courses and the life experience niche that my ‘consciousness’ seeks to do. And as I am doing so, I’m thinking ‘I don’t know why I’m doing this’. It’s like a calling that gets in the way of my own plans for myself. I could never do what you are doing Mystic – the workload in having online stuff happening is huge (like, when I almost completed a teaching degree it nearly drove me nuts constructing lessons… Read more »
