>To start, I’d like to just discuss astrology for a few moments, to explain the importance of having a good Astrologer. I believe in Astrology at a theoretical level, as well as having had the Empirical evidence of having seen numerous predictions come spookily true. By a theoretical level I mean this – we are watery beings and subject to tides like everything else on this planet. If the Moon can affect our biology to the point where it affects a woman’s fertility (as they just “discovered” recently), then I am sure that the other planets and the Sun exert some pull on us, however faint. As we live in an Energy Universe, a physical pull is also an energetic pull. So far, so straightforward.
The tricky bit is working out which astrological influence is the strongest at a particular time, and that’s where Mystic Medusa comes in …. Her intuitive ability to put her finger on the most important influence of the time is what I call the Astrological Weather Forecast. Unless you do a full birth chart (free at Astrodienst) and pay someone a LOT of money to do a personal reading on a daily basis, Mystic’s is simply the most accurate outlook on the day/week/month ahead.
I have been signed up for Mystic’s Daily emails for quite a while now, and find them extremely useful. The only thing I have to be careful about is not getting too Diceman about it. What do I mean by this ? The Diceman is a very interesting book, which I am not linking to as its also bloody horrible. The central premise is that the protagonist decides to leave all his decision making to a roll of the dice, and then proceeds to act like an immoral dickhead. When I am sad, or low, I have a tendency to allow my Divination too much emotional space in my life. I start having a good day, or a bad day according to the results I get. Its hard to do with Mystic, as the second part of her talent is to offer bracingly fresh advice on how to cope with the current astro, and hiding under your doona is rarely an option. Which is a pity cos I honestly think 2010 would have been much better from under my doona 🙂
The other thing I really like about Mystic’s Astrology is her choice of artwork to illustrate her Horoscopes. I love Art and have had hours of fun clicking on just the artworks and following them up. In doing this one day, I ended up on the site of Gala Darling, an AMAZING woman who has bootstrapped herself into the most fabulous existence in New York, and whom I will be devoting an entire post to, as she rapidly became one of my greatest Inspirations. Its funny how a love of pretty pictures can lead you to a most joyous kick up the bum…
Anyway, I digress 🙂 I have a been interested in Astrology for a very long time – since I was 15 and a friend of mine worked out my chart for me – by hand back in those days. She got my Moon wrong, as she had forgotten to compensate for the fact I was born in Europe, but she was astonished by the rest of my chart – Scorpio in Mars, Mercury and Venus. Turns out my Moon was in Scorpio too 🙂 I’ve been intrigued ever since…
Fast forward 12 years to a job I was doing at the Australian Tax Office. I fell to chatting with the Senior Research Librarian, a bloke called Rob, who turned out to also have a deep and abiding interest in Astrology. Turned out his wife was doing a PhD on Almanacs… (Librarians are ALWAYS unusual people. Always. Do Not Be Fooled.) He recommended the Astrologer in The Australian as being devastatingly accurate, so I checked out her page on The Australian online; and found Mystic Medusa
For a long time I could only get Mystic’s astrology via the newspaper’s site. And then it disappeared. PANIC ! Using all my search skills at once I went looking and this time, found Mystic’s site, and I have never lost her since…
I have purchased many of Mystic’s astro-products – The Solar Buzz, Luna Luxe, Sleazometer, Zap Zone Regenerator and Astroscape 2011… These astro-products give you an overview of a particular aspect of the Year’s astrology (sometimes longer for the Plutonic and Saturnalia), in fact, just popping in to her site for this post I have spotted a couple more that I want: but I have never had a full Cosmic Consult done. Mystic only does a few of these every now and then, as they are a huge amount of work.
Now I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I had had a couple of Reconnective Healing sessions done a few months ago and had had a series of serendipities unfold in my life. Feeling stronger and more focussed by the day I decided to grasp my life by the scruff of the neck. I had done an IChing reading by hand and pulled hexagram 18 Repair (also known as Decay). Now the original Chinese text recommends 3 days of consideration before making a move. R.L. Wing’s interpretation (more of which later in this Blog) says, in part,
“Look, instead, for an avenue of constructive action, an area of positive growth. Be energetic once you have found your path of action. Don’t be lulled into inertia by the magnitude of the task. The situation will develop new energy and inspiration once the problems are removed”.
Hmmmm, now my problem has ALWAYS been that I have so many interests that it has been nigh to impossible to pick one to use as a career. My love of books led to me becoming a Librarian, which was hopeless, as apart from public Libraries, Librarians have nothing to do with books these days, on the whole. (My advice if you love books and want to make a career of it is to open a secondhand bookshop 🙂 So I hadn’t had much luck turning my loves into a career, and was stymied as to a path of action. Time for some pointy astrology, I thought….
So I clicked on over to Mystic, and discovered that she was doing Cosmic Consults – she had put the post up 5 minutes previously – while I was constructing the hexagram ! The coincidences speed up from here, so hold tight ! I madly ordered one, and this is what I wrote to Mystic as my questions:
