Mercury Direct And The Weirdness Begins…

Somebody summon Neptunian Life Coaching. Usually Mercury Direct is the antidote to weirdness. This one was just brewing it in some sort of ancient, alchemical lunar cauldron. Betcha it’s from the same set as the Gundestrup Cauldron.  Probably the most studied ancient ware in history, its deities and symbols still mystify scholars. Nobody, apparently, thought to ask a witch.

The mystery grail was found in a bog in Denmark, in a place called Raevemose – Danish for Fox Bog. Created in the 1st or 2nd Century BC, archeologists think it was deliberately dismantled and then concealed in what was then a grassy field.  Peat-miners dug it up by mistake in the late May of 1891, under the most sensational astrological alignment – the Sun, Neptune, Pluto, and the North Node were all conjunct in Gemini.

The Sun, Neptune, Pluto And North Node In Gemini

Obviously, I am obsessive about things like this but the last time those four all lined up was in 83BC: I think the cauldron is ultra-magic. It should be a in a temple, not a museum. But still, it’s safe and we can gaze upon it. The cauldron has elements of Indian, Celtic, Seidr, Faerie, and Babylonian spells/deities all fused into a narrative.

The person who hid it did magnificently. And, if my 83 BC instinct is correct, it was a time when magic was under threat. For instance, the Temple of Jupiter in Rome was burned down, destroying the priestess-written Sybilline Oracles and someone invented and fled with the fantastic Antikythera Mechanism around then as well.  Found in the wreck of a Roman ship near the Greek island/former pirate base of Antikythera, it is considered the world’s first analog computer.

The device tracked eclipses, planets, the Sun, Moon, and stars: it used epicyclic gears, which Leonardo Di Vinci was supposed to have invented 1500 years later. Note for Libras: It calls Libra “the Scorpion’s Claw.” They are still exploring the shipwreck and recently discovered “a mysterious bronze disc depicting a Bull” or – likely Taurus, right?

Libra Is The Scorpion’s Claw?

My point? Well, as you will know from the Turbulent Times posts or the Mars Rave, we’re living through the breakdown of a particular phase, an epoch. It’s transitional but the flailing around of certain entities determined not to admit that their structure is wrong or that they’ve lost the goodwill and trust of many citizens/customers is a stress factor. There is mass gaslighting, smug denial of fairly obvious truths, corruption, and rank incompetence.

But check out the stunning, inspirational images online of either of these two incredible creations: tune into that frequency, the magical signal – the message from across the millennia – not the noise and chaos. Magic is real and becoming stronger. This weirdness – and the T.T. piece linked above goes into everything at length – is not weird at all. It’s the unsustainable doing what it always does – disintegrating despite the best efforts of those profiting to bullshit that it’s fab. We have to – for now – live in and around their system – but that doesn’t mean you need to emotionally invest into every nuance of the news at the cost of your serenity.

Hot New Trend: Dumb Appliances

Honor whoever managed to hide that magical cauldron and the astrologer who died in that wreck by being even more drastically rad. Hone your sorcery skills. Be grounded and aware of real trends.  I’ll be updating on those sorts of things soon but short flash: Dumb Appliances. Self-made, fresh-mixed each morning moisturizers with pure Co-Q10 or Vitamins. Doing your own scanning for alien transmissions – we have the technology and why let S.E.T.I. interpret?

Has anyone else found themselves becoming verbose and prone to haring off down historic tangents at the slightest stimuli? Until early August, Mercury in Cancer – Retro or not – is excellent for connecting with ancestor and animal spirits, historical research, and baking. I even got in an argument on social media (contradicting my own Mercury Retro advice to not bicker on social media) about my post on Princess Scota, the woman who Scotland is named after. Nobody knows for sure but she arrived with a small army, fleeing from some fuqery in Egypt, Africa, or Phoenicia.

But I did manage to complete the new Mega Mystic members home page: It is a hub with the Horoscopes, a new feature called Astro-Flash, the Daily Mystic emails, Oracles, and Tarots all on one page – perfect for easy book-marking or checking out the Daily Mystic emails if you don’t want to get the actual email.

Thoughts?

I’m waiting for the magic. Last night I listened to a musician I like who said music isn’t medicine, it’s magic. I liked that because I always say music is my medicine, but he made me realize it’s that and more, really…..it IS magic! …..I’m having a horrible day, woken up at 8am (!!!) on a Sunday with a live band playing outdoors, fully amplified music, playing in an otherwise silent residential neighborhood, then dealt with noise and other boundary crossing issues from my demonic neighbors which is an ongoing issue. People have really gone off the deep end. There’s… Read more »

I too would love a cottage out in nature away from other people. I need that more than anything right now. I really need space to heal. I’m very worn out from dealing with difficult environments for so many years.

I’ve only just had time to read MM’s daily email for the astro today, re Circe and Uranus. If it hasn’t been mentioned here before (and if so, apols), please, please get your mits on a copy of Circe by Madeline Miller. As the review in The Independent puts it, Miller’s “..turned an ancient tale of female subjugation into one of empowerment and courage….’
An absolute joy to read and a revisioning of a female archetype who was denigrated because of her sorcerous powers.

I didnt follow the post on Scota, but some of the British myths say that the druids went to Africa and back. The late, great evolutionary biologist Lyall Watson, who grew up in South Africa, wrote about a carved stone in South Africa that had Ogham writing on it with a carving of a giraffe. While the writing looked like Ogham, the letters didnt make sense. Unless you translated it into arabic, in which case the ogham spelt out “here stands the giraffe”.

The Arabs went everywhere. There are ancient family tree totem poles found in New Zealand showing Arabic forefathers from many hundreds of years ago. It’s interesting my great grandmother was Arabic and the faces I find the closest to hers were old images of Maori women I have seen. The finer features of the original indigenous Maori’s as opposed to the the Pacific Islander rounder features look quite similar to Arabic features.

Today is my birthday. Despite turbulent astro, abusive national governance & MMs advice not to crystal-up; I’ve found solace in Earth opal, decent sleep and limiting Social media/online EMF exposure (unless its grounded, Mystical or, health guidance, home-grown veg cooking recipes, addressing frankly astoundly stupid online commentary plus/minus the odd netflikery). A course for developing psychic awareness (which completes tomorrow) feels more real to me than anything else. The magic is affirming and it’s where I want to stay, as dedicated priestess. I bring frogs & baked good to the alter. Circe has my vote for PM.

I had a crazy dream last night. The guy from that old show “Mad about you” was showing me around his city.

The transport system was weird. People sat in a football stadium seats and were transported left to right. And I discovered people who were murdered (drug related) were buried under the stadium.

It sounds horrible but that dude was really sweet. The rest of the dream expressed the personality of the people.

Is that show set in New York? Must Google.

View this post on Instagram Scotland was named after a Princess Scota AKA Scotia who came from Egypt or Scythia in the pre-patriarchal era, approximately 1500 BC. Or possibly earlier, it's hazy. Historians dispute this, some because it runs counter to their vision of 'the Celts' and others because there is not enough evidence, probably because particular religions burned it all. She could have been the daughter of the Pharoah Akhenaten and Nefertiti, the beautiful one. I find this fascinating for a number of reasons and there ARE in fact Celtic Gods with similarities to the old Egyptian and related… Read more »

I have definitely been on a historic tangent lately both intellectually and entertainment/aesthetic wise. Been watching/reading historical fiction of the Viking vs. Saxon era of UK history and what has been especially interesting to me about that era is the way they (at least the characters in my stories) were looking at the crumbling Roman structures with awe and marvelling at the ability to build roads and stone buildings with such high technology.
