If you look carefully at the image, it will quickly be apparent that that the zodiac, the planets and their relationships form a mandala, a symbolic figure representing the universe. Within the figure, we see that each of the original planets – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn – are used with two signs, while the Sun & Moon, placed in the 4th and 5th house, are used once. Interestingly, the Moon is associated with security and the Sun with creativity. If you look at the mandala again, you can see that there are many potential layers to who we are. Walking through the figure, a narrative emerges: we need all these qualities. Keep in mind, as well, that because your Sun sign is only a small factor of your chart, you may feel a great deal of kinship with the sign under which you’re born.

Mercury & Neptune - Sister planets?

I was thinking before about the exaltion of the outer planets and couldn’t help but relate Gemini and Virgo (and to some extent ‘thinkers’ like Aquarius and Libra) to Neptune, although rather, existing under the illusion of thought and words rather than Cancer and Pisces under reverie and maladaptive daydream. Alan Watts discusses his theories on the concept of the development of language and mental signs to navigate the world around us and how thoughts protect us from truth and trigger us to lose touch with true reality ( Neptune is the deception, the illusion, the masquerade and the fog; and Mercury encourages us to indulge in the sensuality of our own thinking, intellectualize every concept to the point of blurring the magic and identify too closely with our own thoughts. These two planets are the traditional tricksters, and with the mischievous double talk of Mercury and sedating Neptune psychosis are these too planets more closely related? 

Mercury thinks to escape while Neptune is the escape, and these two play with each other transmitting the deceptive photoshopped media, novels, adding song lyrics to melody and propaganda. Mercury relates to forms of psychological ailment and thought disorder, anxiety; while Neptune’s twelfth house governs mental instabilities, psychotic illness, substance abuse, delusional disorders and derealization. Both have a capacity of deceptive allure to cloud the practical seams of reality and become utilized as a defensive reflex that taints realistic exposure. Neptune’s enchanting pull into the mystic unconscious waters can completely distort our perception of the universe and Mercury’s chatter can block us from engaging with our divine soul beyond the ego and view the world through a consensual and meaningless block of symbols and linguistically associations. Ideally, we draw from the energies of Neptune in meditation and reunite the infinite with the ego to escape from the mischief of Mercury. If we slip inside the space between our thoughts, this is where Neptune waits, are they sisters from other sides of the solar system?

All 12 of my little drawings each one a different zodiac sign, all in it’s order. 

These little pictures each have a mash up of a variety of things that represents that sign. Including: The zodiac symbol, their ruling planet symbol, their element symbol, one of the flowers that represent that sign and the colour that represents that sign around the symbols. I like these as a little collection, but I still have much more researching and experimentation to do before I start with my final pieces. 

Moon in Aquarius

Kind, Quirky, Distant

People born with the Moon in Aquarius tend to be very out of touch with their emotions. They often have no idea how they feel. They are usually very kind and very concerned about improving the world.  They are very open minded and they always have lots of friends. They may seem strangely cold though. Like there is no center.  They may be very difficult to connect with. They may be next to you, talking to you, but emotionally in another galaxy. Completely unreachable. 

Nothing phases them. They aren’t weirded out by anything. Sometimes they do want emotional connection, but they are not always aware of their emotional disconnect. They are like robots trying to imagine what emotions must feel like.  They don’t understand how disconnected with emotional behavior they actually are.

You won’t see them ever cry.  If you do, you may never see them again.  If they have ever gotten to the place, with a person, where they have to cry in front of them, that is their cue to exit.  They don’t like feeling weighed down by tears. They don’t see the point in all of that.  

It is possible that they detach themselves from their emotions because they actually are very sad with the state of the world. They are so deeply heartbroken by it that they cannot live with it.  They have to leave the weight of their emotions in a place where they cannot access it, because if they do, it will hold them down and prevent them from moving forward and all aquarius knows how to do is move forward.

They cannot handle their emotions at all. They fall apart, they have no idea how to allow themselves to feel what they are feeling. It is an extremely scary and unsettling experience for them.  They are completely overcome by pain when they actually do face it. They are manic.

So often they seem distant. Unreachable. But they do want to be there with you, just not emotionally. They need to be around people who entertain and invigorate their minds.  They want to share their ideas with people who they know will listen. They want to hear interesting, fun, unique ideas. They do NOT want to engage in any emotional drama.  That is the way to totally bore them and bring down their energy.

They don’t always want to be parents. It is way to weighty of a responsibility for them.  Often, they’d rather have pets than children. Pets are much less of an emotional responsibility than children, but yet it still allows them to do good in this world by looking out for a life in need of care. Moon in Aquarius natives  can be extremely loving and affectionate with their animals.  Much more than you will ever see them be with a human.  

When they do have children they may be an emotional distance between them.  There may be a bigger issue that has to get more of their attention, so they can’t fully give themselves emotionally to their children, though they may really want to.

People with this placement often have to try very hard to make personal time with their children to remind them that they are there and they aren’t going anywhere.

The homes of Moon in Aquarius natives are usually very tech savvy. They will most likely have all the latest models of the latest technologies. They like to be ahead of the curve. Their homes are usually very modern and quirky.  

Famous Aquarius Moon natives:

Marilyn Monroe, Britney Spears, Sasha Grey, Princess Diana, Frank Ocean, Uma Thurman, John Lennon, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Sandra Bullock, Woody Allen, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Jessica Lange, Jayne Mansfield, Kim Cattrall, Glenn Close, Orson Welles, Latoya Jackson, Chris Isaak, Rosa Parks, Timothy Leary, Philip K. Dick, Sherilyn Fenn, Ice T, Tom Petty

☿ mercury: playing with words

mercury isn’t only how you communicate. yes, it is your translator, how you share your message with the world, how your thoughts are spoken, but it’s also how you perceive your surroundings, how you struggle with gathering and clarifying the information you receive. mercury creates patterns, absorbs concepts, it is how you think and how you share your inner wars. it is how you connect, grasp and reason. each sign provides a different translation of your inner world and a different perspective of life, but its importance is often questioned due to lack of understanding.

December 31st, 2014

The end of 2014 is going to go out with a boom today. You might have noticed things have been particularly tense the past two or three days emotionally. We could be feeling the impending Mars and Jupiter opposition. Think of the time now of burning up the karma from the past year. Right now might be chaotic or emotionally intense but it is the grieving and purging of the past year. In other news right now is an intensely creative time that might be overwhelming. Try to make sure to use this time to create something physical to manifest the next year. For example, if you want to make a lot of money, paint a box of cash next to a pot of flowers. Magic and creativity is highly tied at this time.
