Weekly Horoscopes & Maverick Mercurial Revelations

The Weekly Horoscopes – from September 18 – are posted. And yes, we are entering the Mercury Retro Zone and the maverick mercurial revelations are just beginning!

In keeping with the new-era-amp-up/surreal absurdity levels, an internet-of-things-bot is this season’s Mercury Retro alert.* Next week’s Piscean Full Moon is creatively regenerating and peak paranormality.

I’ve popped in Scorpio below – how cool is the Albert Camus pic? And, the Daily Mystic email for the weekend contains a brief but pertinent and hopefully helpful response for people who’ve emailed to ask my opinion on the deal between the U.S.A. and Australia that was just announced.

Finally – for now – check out the Moon near Saturn and Jupiter! It’s in the general vicinity for the next few days.

*If you’re a MM member, my helpful cyber-rave is on the Mega Mystic members page.

Just wanna say Yes to a paranormal experience on the full moon in pisces in my 8th house – Triple Cancerian here, with natal moon in the 12th, just happened to be doing a sound healing on a Piscean, pretty much bang on exact the full moon, perchance, when, I got totally in the zone the most I’ve ever been doing this stuff I’m just starting out, and the ante was upped in the channeling and tuning in to the energy field department, especially with rattle shaking, anyways… When I chimed the bells 3 times to signal the end of… Read more »

That’s so cool. Working with the Moon’s magic is the best.

Earthstar

You healers blow me away.💫 Closest I have got is attending breathwork shamanic meditations, and doing at home journeys listening to Sandra Ingermann. But always – full respect for Mother Moon (and esp. her cycles, or portals), and sound healing next on list. 💗

Reading: Homecoming by Elfie Shiosaki, a Noongar / Yawuru writer. Can recommend a thousand per cent for anyone wanting to know more about the impact and consequences of colonisation in Australia.
Watching: Hacks. OMG I inhaled it in 24 hours. Women, the generational divide, mothers and daughters. Brilliant.
Listening: 80s soft rock on some anonymous internet station. (I’m having a Gary transit, ok? 😂)

Skarab

Thanks for that reading suggestion- am ordering ASAP.
I think you might really enjoy the series The Chair (re academia & cancel culture) it’s hilarious.
(Have started a Chisel bender – Gaz is now conjunct Jupe & activating grand cross, am bracing myself 😬)

Dear Pegs & all the Highly Intelligent Readers Here, thanks for overcoming shyness and sharing your light! My three read/watch/listen noms are very accidental, not at all prescriptive, just result of my overworked Gem moon – but going to take up all of your recommendations, YUMMY: Reading: textbooks per degree. And too many news articles, but I am like a truffle hunter for the good news Only. And re-reading Tara Springett’s Tibetan Buddhist techniques for manifestation – mainly for all the extra info she gives for unblocking chakras/loving meditations, as embarrassingly don’t even have time to make a vision board/define… Read more »

Mary Oliver poetry. Divan of Hafiz. Vintage maps, all of MM’s amazing links contained within pics of her weekly horoscopes, anything on trauma-healing modalities, anything on shamanism, William Morris !!, medieval music (Jordi Savall and his beautiful late wife, Montserrat Figueras). I collect articles evidencing damage to environment by microplastics.
I’ll read/appreciate anything my peeps clap onto, basically. except numbers. Numero not so much.

Ladies of the Canyon………sang Joni Mitchell, you are loved. Am feeling humble and grateful for your cyber company and communications and the appreciation it is surely reciprocated by me. A story: The first time realised Mystic Medusa had a website mentioned on her Astrological columns (actually glossy squares) in the Australian Weekend Magazine was thrilled she was easily accessible as she was one of 3 rather clever woman writers for that quality hard copy. Loved her style of writing and how insanely hip and humorous she was plus a blog where one could write their thoughts in response to her… Read more »

Moi?
Been reading Mystic’s blog since 2010. Took me 3 more yrs to participate coz i was too shy & thought everyone was so smart & funny.YOU always brought a warm smile to my heart. I thought the blog was a perfect mixture of the hip, arty, playful & serious; & prob the main attraction pour moi – the cozmic & esoterica ….. and oh yeah, Astrology!
Just wish more boyz would play.

Bonjour ma petite, Let’s make a thing: Listening Reading & Watching while Myst is busy with Astral DNA :-). It passes on good stuff one may not thought of. Thinking everyone else was smarter wiser more erudite than me also made me shy but THREE YEARS Skarab? Just bought a scarab ring and lion’s head ring had been lusting for from 6 months from Mimco.

Hola Skarab!! I am bingeing Sex Education right now- LOVE it!! Hope they make more seasons (always loved Asterix too) xx Veronica

Skarab

Veronica! Hola guapa! It’s fab isn’t it?!
V, you once recommended a podcast about herbs & esoterica on a post some time back when we were discussing psychoactive herbs. I really loved it, but kept the link on a computer i no longer have. If you remember what i’m talking about, could you post it again, por favor? xx

Veronica

Rune Soup podcast- there is so so much good stuff on there, but the episodes you are thinking of are from 2017

‘Talking plant Magic with Catamara Rosarium’ and/or
‘Double talking plant allies with Sarah Lawless and Juniper Jeni’

Skarab

That’s it! – muchas gracias. X

Invicta

Divine. I love this community so much

Invicta

Isn’t Gillian Anderson utterly transcendent in that?
Although there’s nothing she’s not transcendent in tbf but seeing her shine as an overtly funny character without sacrificing vulnerability or intelligence is delicious. Enjoy.

Skarab

Yes, totally, she’s v funny in this – esp after her intense & scary Thatcher – bloody scary she was.

Invicta

I loved her in The Fall as Stella Gibson.
Her dog is called Stella too but which came first I do not know.
I’ve still not seen her as Thatcher apart from a few photos with Olivia Colman who is also DIVINE. Yeah might resubscribe to Netflix this winter and take in the last two seasons of the crown. I’m rewatching Succession tonight which is kinda Shakespearean. Anyone else have recs for good TV?
or books

Ok, (sorry it’s me again – i’m making up for those 3 yrs i said nothing, lol) but i have to recommend The Book of Disquiet by this extraordinary writer Fernando Pessoa. It’s a TRIP. He was a super eccentric Portuguese guy who was also a mysticist & avid astrologer. Anyways, if you want something weird & wonderful check him out.

Invicta

😁🙏🏻🙏🏻😁

Pegasus

Gillian Anderson was brilliant in the Hannibal series x 3. Played a warped psychiatrist fascinated by Hannibal (Michael Madson). It is very dark though.

Invicta

Ooof. Yes please. I’m into the darkness. 12th house moon and Lilith in the 12th in Scorpio. Any excuse tho.

Veronica

Love ya Pegs- have always felt your warm heart, Saggy/ Cap wisdom and humour through the interwebs

Yes I used to just read blog for years before venturing to comment. Has been such a great dimensional portal for what Skarab wrote below

“perfect mixture of the hip, arty, playful & serious; & prob the main attraction pour moi – the cozmic & esoterica ….. and oh yeah, Astrology!”

Just re read Turbulent Times and the associated What the Astro Fuq. Now i get it astrologically those ongoing squares and the havoc caused by their rays. Often have to re-visit what i skim after a certain time frame to really understand it. Maybe a type of Elder Dyslexia that or my eyes are all read out.

As are you Pegs. Your insights and admonitions as much as the cheers have been an invaluable part of my journey since wandering in here 2012

Hear, hear Invicta. Pegs you really mean a lot to so many, and I would imagine not just on these pages! X Be careful with the migraines, am so sorry you had to have an MRI/MIR? (I am too scared to get one of those – need to build up guts). I too have had the migraines with aura since about age 8, but never read Oliver Sach’s work on it – will have to look up. I get the zig-zag technicolour (like the old tele’s) circles about half an hour before the pain hits (usually one side). Although since… Read more »

On the day that the Sun was exact opposite Neptune (making a T-square with my moon), the love of my life made a grand re-entrance after months of silence by showing up unexpectedly at an event I was hosting and asking to talk. I told him I need time. We’re going to meet up at the new moon. I don’t think he’s out of the woods yet with his own problems and so we can’t be together (or even friends/in close contact), but I’m glad we won’t have silence anymore. In this lifetime or another I know we are happy… Read more »

Thanks Mystic. I am looking forward to this weeks full moon & equinox. Isn’t it weird how it recently (given the ultra weird astro) it seems old-fashioned to ‘be excited’ by fairly routine heavenly happenings at the moment? haha!

Pegasus

WIZARD. The heavens are worth getting excited about as the earth ain’t in great shape making the cosmos a better focus of our energies. Libran harmony coming tomorrow.

Wish Upon a Star

Really annoyed. Just found out my neighbour maybe 15 metres away had sonic sound to deter the local bats. Apparently the police removed it a few months ago . When I was waking up at sunset and sleeping at dawn. I just thought it was menopause. Or winter.

The police, the council and the body corporate recognise him as a nuisance.

Grrrrr. My nice neighbours said just let it go.

emg

Sounds like you’d become bat woman with that sleep routine ?!?! We have loads of bats here that swoop and pip and trill all night. I love the noise. And welcome their dark shadowy selves flitting past my open windows. Actually it’s no wonder my sleep is rubbish. We’ve got scops owls and cicadas and other owls plus roe deer barking and church bells !!

Wish Upon a Star

Yes I love the bats too. Because of all the noise etc most of the neighbours don’t appreciate our Plutonic friends. So the council is installing a water sprinkler system to keep them away. I will miss them when they are gone. I remember the first day I came here. I was so relieved to get away from the nightmare existence I left. At dusk I sat on the back porch . Then I saw them flying. I was in 7th heaven. It was definitely symbolic. Oh I love the sound of cicadas. So relaxing. I wish I had owls.… Read more »

Bats are pests in some places, they freak me out

Lilalila

no, bats are not pests. we are for destroying the natural habitat of most flora and fauna on this earth.

emg

They’ve played quite a role in my life. It was when things are moving. I had three nights of them flying into my bedroom ! I got quite handy with a towel and a crawling about under my bed. They’re incredible. But they just get a bum role in most novels.

Hi Mystic, I’ve been a member since the tenth of September but am not getting any daily mystic emails. It’s now 19/09/21. I’ve emailed your support team twice. In the past I have successfully received daily mystic emails at that email account. Can you get some action happening to remedy this?

Skarab

Camus! Many moons ago, I took a sprig of rosemary from his small unkept grave in Provence & planted it in my tiny London garden. I used to make infusions with it hoping to imbibe his genius.

P.S. The Plague makes for an interesting read these days.

Chrysalis

Ahh that is so romantic! I bet some of the genius rubbed off, truly. x

Earthstar

I agree.🤣 And that anecdote paints such an evocative picture – even just the first line!!😍

Skarab

Thank you kindly youse guys. xx
Chrysalis, you are sort of right, but not exactly how you mean. Any genius of the Absurdist Camus i might of imbibed, Gary transmutes into me being a genius at absurdity, not quite the desired result. 🙂

Chrysalis

Haha! Love it. I feel we are overdue a Gary discussion. Gaz is currently hanging out at the *snicker* bottom of my chart, conj my IC and Neptune, opp my Jupe. Hehe. Ooh I’ve just checked and yes, there is an asteroid Camus! 12696. Currently in Virgo. Natally I have Camus at 0 Gemini in the 10th. It feels important, somehow. x

Skarab

Omg, you genius – you looked up Camus! that placement certainly does sound important in your chart. Bet you’ve got that certain je ne sais quois charm about you in spades. Natally he’s at 14 Pisces in my 5th H, and trine *exact* my Sun! Yay! No wonder i love him so. PLUS right now trans Camus is actually conjunct the Sun – and here we are chatting about him…. coincidence? Ha! Well, fuq ME! trans Gaz is at 14º Scorp trine my Sun and Camus! A beautiful Grand Water Trine. C’est magnifique! … i think… must find a Cause… Read more »

This Scorp rising is ready for developments in the weird that has been setting up in the past few days. A new position I’m going for at a place I’ve wanted to be for years – but this time I have better armor and tools. A catty woman at work who has treated me like shit for years has met her match… long story but the match is a good friend of mine. Both situations precipitated out of the blue. Keeping my mouth zipped tight but maybe you can read my vague intensity and the hint there’s much more to… Read more »

Oooh exciting:) ive been reading and thinking about shadow work lately. I’m working on integrating as many disparate parts of myself as I can, safely… haha. I recently had a huge spat with a woman I came across through a charity/ volunteer group and we had a proper cat fight and it went on for days. In the end because we’re both volunteers the charity didn’t kick either of us out so we had to deal with each other. I was aware that during our power struggles I wasn’t so much upset as I was enjoying the adversarial sparing. I’m… Read more »

The lady I work with would be fine if she didn’t play out her insecurities with other people. I don’t get involved, I’m too busy and I don’t care if she likes me or not. But the other day I get a call from a friend asking how I know her (the co-worker) because their kids play soccer together and let’s just say she has been really unkind to my friend and has not tried to get to know her at all. She’s not one to sit idly by and let it happen! It’s not in my court but it’s… Read more »

Oh god yeah control dramas are horrible.
Im not brave enough to get involved in those.
Projective identification is one of the few things I still find absolutely terrifying. Unfortunately I haven’t developed the skills yet to be that kind of hero. Certainly not to get involved on someone else’s behalf. Go you though. 🦞

OMG Invicta is surely IS a silver pixie hair design. Have finally gotten the colour i wanted by emphasising where the silver streaks are with a strong lightener then adding a violet water colour spray with some pink added to get a slightly mauve effect. There is an actual silver rinse available that haven’t tried yet. So many women are allowing their natural silver to shine & shine it does tho’ may be result of hairdressers being closed, but it is looking so good so strong & very flattering. Yours looks so free & easy plus you can alter shape… Read more »

Invicta

agree that silver and violet/ pink colours have such uplifting and flattering effects on the face. Real silver hair is magical. I lightened mine and then used a silver shampoo-in rinse which keeps the brass at bay. Hopefully I get my real silver stripes soon! I love how we are finally embracing the crone / dangerous old woman / magical elder archetype in beauty. Putting the algorithm to work for me means I only see images on my feed that reflect my interests, mostly sewing and mending or menopause accounts and lots of silver sisters sharing their journey from dyeing… Read more »

Adding to the swoons for Camus!

sundew

But Camus has SUCH a negative viewpoint on life! A nihilist, along with Sartre and Nietzsche. He nearly finished me off when studying Existentialism at age 18.

VenusRules

well, I’m a Scorpio, so not much scares me, except myself.

Earthstar

Was going to say – didn’t know Albert was a Scorpio, until this post – and knowing all the Scorps I love, it makes so much sense… I minored in philosophy, too, Sundew – I too prefer hopeful utilitarianism, or even (sometimes) Kant’s categorical imperative, but there is a keen hope in declaring the absurdism//futility of life, I find. Xoo

Skarab

Oh noooo – Camus was anything but a nihilist! His Absurdist philosophy might take off from the same stance as the Existentialists, but he wasn’t one either – he refuted that all his life. Reading his Notebooks one realises his absolute love of life, nature and beauty, & he urged people to live life with presence and passion – to make it a life worth living. Above all he was a humanist, however, as he wrote, “humanitarian feelings are always accompanied by misanthropy”. That is what i’m finding now with this crazy fuqed up world. I want to believe in humanity, but… Read more »

Earthstar

A thousand yeses. A million. Thank You Skarab.🙏💗💗
(Also was going to add – not sure if appropriate as so personal – but – in my experience – if you have significant adversity in (especially early) life then the absurdist/futility view makes sense – because only in the face of deepest loss and pain do you really face The Question – what is the meaning/point of this mess?? When it all ends or sours, despite seemingly infinite love/effort/hope. Humanity is this endless cycle of letting go. I am still learning. While breathing (lol). The end.) Xoo

Ahh thanks Skarab yes I’m no expert and definitely biased in my views but Camus yes yes. And yes. How can we be true humanists without acknowledging ourselves as also misanthropic? . I love Carl Jung’s quote about how impossible it is for consciousness to reach heaven without also having roots that go all the way down to hell. Jung can be pretty terrifying but he’s definitely no nihilist. My preferred interpretation of the Nietzsche quote about the death of god is that it it’s a call for humanity to really align with our highest values. And to find out… Read more »

Life learning is not a subject in schools. I didn’t start studying until 30 years old and have continued with 2 x 2 year breaks with pens pencils books rulers rubbers in lounge kitchen and even bedroom, not bathroom :-). Australian catholic colleges in 50’s and 60’s was by nuns who had no teaching training at all. Back then we were taught sewing cooking elocution when i wanted science and latin, which gave me a life long desire to learn what i didn’t in school, so you didn’t miss much even tho’ you are much younger we were on the… Read more »

Yes. I think we shared some Saturn square childhood and Saturn Square early educational opportunities Pegs. Oi vey I’m only beginning to see the wood for the trees now. It certainly toughened us up though hey

Skarab

With you 2. Saturn really spoilt my early education (it’s in my 3rd H Cap of early learning). Apart from attending 6 different primary schools, my father punished me if i didn’t get really good grades. I always freaked at exam times. The pressure used to give me horrible tummy pains which i had till my early 20s. I didn’t know the pain was stress related (no one talked about stress back then) & doctors had no idea either & were about to do investigative surgery on me until someone recommended a homeopath. He got rid of it in one… Read more »

Wish, i left Oz 30 yrs ago & i’ve lost contact with all the therapists i knew in Qld. The only homeopaths i can recommend are in Sydney. One is Ken D’aran & i think he does Skype consultations. The other is Michael Neil (he also uses astrology to help choose remedies) but i don’t know if he Skypes.

Thanks Scsrab

Invicta

Wow this is strong medicine Skarab. I can relate tho.

Skarab

Pegasus, i went to one of those Oz Catholic schools in the 60s for a year before i was expelled (but that’s another story). One of the ancient nuns there used to teach us geography. The classes used to consist solely of chats & slides of her European travels in the late1940s-50s. i have to admit that i enjoyed them, but can you imagine the education dept. letting that happen now, LOL.

Invicta

Nietzsche a nihilist?
im not formally educated so I could be wrong here but my understanding of him is far more earnest and hopeful

Narelle

Yes, Nietzsche was a nihilist, big time

Last edited 29 days ago by narelle76
Invicta

That’s interesting Narelle. I don’t read him that way at all but then he was nothing if not contradictory. Often the people – particularly other writers and artists he held in highest esteem were the same ones he’d be having a go at and rubbishing a few years later. I’m too much in love with him to believe he’s nihilistic. But it’s cool that you read him like that.

Narelle
Invicta

Narelle thanks, yes I read that and while it’s a bit spoon feedy for me, I’d rather just read him than be told by someone else what they think he was trying to say, there is truth and value in what he says. I understood the lecturer to mean that Nietzsche saw nihilism as the starting off point in a journey rather than a destination. I could go on and perhaps after some coffee and breakfast we can continue? I’d love it if you could change my mind?

Invicta

Sartre you can keep tho sundew. I liked the idea of him as goth aspie teen but I also liked thick grey polyester cardigans and menthol cigarettes so you know
