So, two nights ago, I woke up, and I was awake, but I couldn't move at all. Somewhere, deep in my mind, I knew it was sleep paralysis. I wanted to scream and I remember, I opened my mouth, but I just couldn't. I have trouble with bad, lucid, vivid dreams all of my life, I blame my planets in 8th house for that, and 12th too. Is it connected somehow with astrology? Any insights?

It happens to me too, but as sleep apnea, not able to breathe, struggling to move, seems like I am about to die, I somehow manage to shake my body and breathe. Got Venus Mars in libra in 8th house. Though the attacks are not frequent, happens in winter season often - choked nose due to cold and seasonal allergies.

I've experienced this. I agree with you, it's an 8th/12th house deal.  Stress and fear.

 

Try to form a habit - makes sure to clear your mind when you go to sleep. Perhaps ask your guardian angel to watch over you.

I also have learned to set dreams like this aside, the very minute I wake up. It's bad enough. I don't recall ever getting a benefit from trying to mine them.

I mean, if you wake with information - great. But I don't think extending the reach of something like this, makes sense.  

Come to think of it, you might see it as a spasm... muscle spasm. When you have one of those, you let it go, as soon as possible. Smile

@elsa thank you very much for your advice and experience! I am under a lot of pressure/stress and the fear is constantly present for the last few weeks and I'm exhausted, but trying to go on, keep everything under the control, be normal as much as I can be, but the struggle is real. Maybe it happens because of that, who would know but it did scare the shit out of me. 

Actually, I was praying while it was happening, because I felt some strange presence, not a good one for sure, like something was attacking me.

What do you mean if I wake with information? It can bring information? When I did wake up, the fear was gone in a few minutes and I continue sleeping, a bit stressed, but as I said, somewhere deep in my mind I knew what was going on. My best friend claims, sleep paralysis is connected with the demons, could it be true?

@dori I guess it could be true. If so, it sounds as if you know how to call for protection. If you do, you will have it.

As for my remark about "information", sometimes bad dreams can tip you to things that are (subconsciously) scaring you more than you realize. Or causing you distress or harm. Things like the news or disturbing tv. You can use information like that to shut off the source.

As for the stress and pressure, you've got to reduce it as much as you can. Settle the day and you'll settle the night. You sound as if you're in a situation where you have to get your gas-mask on first. Then look around for what you might deal with, taking care to discern what is actually your job / something you can control.

Good luck!

@elsa thanks! You've been very helpful, I really appreciate it. Smile My mom is very sick, I'm taking care of her, the whole house, I need to be normal at work, it's a lot of pressure and there are days when it's hard to handle all of it, but what you've said, I need to settle my day, care about myself so I could take care of others. Thanks Elsa!

I had sleep paralysis a lot when I was a child. I have both Pisces Sun/Moon conjunct in H8. Sun is my chart ruler and Moon rules H12. I also have Neptune on my SN square the Sun and Moon and my Neptune rules H8. I would say definitely 8/12 house related.

North node in my 8th, Saturn in my 12th. I suffered from hundreds, probaly over a thousand sleep paralysis since I was a little child.  I do believe they were demonic cause right before, the same day or after, we get paranormal activity and attacks on awake members in the household. shadow men, shadow creatures, dishes crashing on the ground. The way we stopped them from attacking us in sleep is simple, we sleep on our side now. They prefer you on your back. We also put salt lamps around the house and it helps from the other activity.  I dont believe what the scientists say on the matter cause they think astrology is fake too.

Thank you, everyone! All of your experiences have been comforting and useful. I think this wasn't the first time it happened. I think it was also happening when I was a little girl and that my grandfather was helping me, but I pushed it back. Funny thing. I was sleeping on my side, and funny thing, my mom told me two days after that while she was napping that her late mom pulled her toe while she was sleeping and told her in her dream she was cold. She said someone really pulled her for her toe, but after reading your comment @Morningstar, I'm not so sure anymore. I also have Saturn in the 12th house (Scorpio).

I'm a Christian and I believe this is a form of spiritual attack. 

If you are a believer, pray to God for protection and ask Him to show you if there is anything in your life which is leaving you vulnerable to negative spiritual energies and what you can do about it.

I believe dark spiritual energy has increased enormously in the world today, in part because of all the negativity and deception that is rampart, and all the suffering we are experiencing as a collective. 

I was experiencing what I later discovered to be spiritual attacks, after the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to the new age deception and my false beliefs that were keeping me in the dark. As scary as it was, I am grateful, because it caused me to wake up and repent. I said a prayer for you, I hope you find relief from this.

@strawb the house I grew up in was supposedly haunted. Many different people reported seeing supernatural happenings in the house, so it could very well be something supernatural/demonic. Until I learned about sleep paralysis, I thought what I saw at night was real and it definitely felt demonic. It was nothing short of terrifying. Every night I feared going to bed. Just another effed up thing about my childhood. It’s no wonder I blocked so much of it out.
