With Uranus in the very Venusian sign of Taurus until 2026, many of us are heading more into the natural beauty realm. It’s partly a Gaia/Earth-Goddess re-attunement to the environment, part-heightened awareness of poorly-regulated chemicals ingredients, and part-protest at crazy expectations, particularly of women.
The gray hair movement is particularly strong at the moment and it shows no sign of abating. In a drastic shift away from ‘hiding every strand of gray hair at all costs’, silver and platinum are now desirable hair hues. Not so much mousy dark roots with wiry tendrils of aluminum but maybe that is coming lol.
So obviously the scary facts about hair dye chemicals that seep into our scalps and flouting ageism are key motivators. However, there is more. What if Hair is Psychic? And coloring it or even cutting it blocks this incredible psychic source material? While rabbit-holing some totally unrelated research, I found this fabulous article:
It is believed that the tips of your hair are like antennae that gather energy from the Universe in order to stimulate higher levels of consciousness and creativity.
Hair is a natural extension of the nervous system and is said to transmit important information to the brain. It is also believed to balance the entire electromagnetic field of your body, which in turn can help you to increase your life force, vitality and intuition.
Hair Picks Up Signals?!
Keratin, the article goes on to say, can operate much like crystals or gemstones, conducting vibe and picking up signals. Genghis Kahn (the conqueror) thought having your hair cut into a fringe would obscure the vision of your third eye so he forbade it for everyone. Who knew he was so New Age?
Then, obviously on a roll with this, i found the truly magnificent think piece: The Spiritual Nature of Hair. Take Out: Get an (organic and sustainable) wooden wide-toothed comb for your hair as that will help your entire aura and connection to life source.
Hair is magic. It conducts Prana. Hair is Psychic. This, you understand, is taking my Uranus in Taurus “Dark Roots” resolution to a whole new level. The “avoid chemicals” operation has morphed into a matrix of reconnecting my hair – the Dark Roots – with Cosmos.
This sounds facetious but it’s actually not. Who has NOT felt the roots of their hair prickle at an incursion? So thoughts please…does anyone else want to grow their hair out and go no-tox with me for Uranus in Taurus?
I had a brief bash at this in early 2016 but flipped and went shrieking back to the hairdresser for a vat of PPD and Resorcinol or whatever it is. This time I am not backing off. And, who else thinks Hair is Psychic? What does this say about extensions? If you’re wearing someone else’s hair woven into your own, do you pick up on messages not meant for you?
“Hairs are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos, and transmit them directly into the brain.”
Bruce Robinson – Withnail & I – the original screenplay.
Think of the myriad of “superstitions” about hair in folk magic: Hair standing on end, the rule about never leaving your hair (or toenail cuttings) to be gathered, and the concept that cutting it can diminish your power. Or, an opposing theory, that cutting hair after a traumatic period can aid recovery.
If any of these are for real, could the dyeing process somehow lower the antennae sensitivity of hair? Or is hair really more dead than alive and irrelevant to power or extra-sensory perception?
