Yeah, people are starting to get a little bizarre.  My neighbor next door cut every tree down on his property and mulched it over the past couple of days.  He’s still working on it.  He has an acre of property.  It is so loud, I can’t even sit in my yard and of course, there is nowhere to go out to but the supermarket or pharmacy.

I feel like I could beat the sh&t out of my neighbor.  Today was beautiful, but he had people logging his backyard for 10 hours straight.  The man hates trees.  I don’t know why the hell he moved to the woods.  He’s always been a wacko.  His backyard is paved with stone.  We live on the side of a mountain and its steep so every year he has to pack down his paved yard due to erosion or the stones get out of place.

Geez, our Governor has to just reopen everything.  He’s an idiot.  He opened the parks at 50% capacity, but not the bathrooms.  No port-a-potties.  What could possibly go wrong?  Well, people did their business wherever and so now there is lots of you know what all over the parks.

This is not going to end well if they don’t open up all the businesses.  Supposedly they opened retail here for curbside pickup.  What the hell.  I need a couch.  Can I get that to go, please?

What is wrong with these governors?  I’m pretty cranky and sick of being locked down.  Its been 8 weeks and I’ve had enough.  I want my life back.  As bad as some areas of NJ are it isn’t the same where I live in the state.  We are more rural.

Blah.  Rant over.  Thanks for the opportunity to share.

JoFrance I hear you. I’m in PA and it’s the same here. The park bathrooms thing is asinine. Our governor did that too. And a bunch of other senseless things, too many to count.

I notice people are getting tired and feeling bored which sometimes leads them to seek excitement, break some rules, get angry with others (cos who can get angry with an invisible virus?)…

I’m feeling tired from the same old sameness and a little nervous about the unknown/years to come living with this virus yet I’m ‘still standing’ (got Elton John’s song in my head now.)

Yet my body talks and says that anxiety is hidden somewhere (got some concerns pre Covid-19) as I’ve had minimal anxiety tremors (like almost a medium level vibration) on one side of my chest. Sometimes in my life I’ve had an eyelid vibrate for an hour or so from low level stress yet the chest thing lasted three days…So I told myself to slow down and enjoy an upcoming work break catching up with films (movies) and some play.

One day at a time. That helps. I think if I was in lockdown without a loved one I’d be singing another tune regarding this topic.

Well, a quarantine feels a lot like either a Capricorn or 12th house energy to me! Isolating (12th house) and restricting (Capricorn).

Ahh, so that’s why maybe I had an easier time dealing with our state’s shelter-in-place order than others! My progressed moon is moving through my 12th house (but in Sagittarius). I drive out of town to rural areas to see home care clients. I was actually happier when things were quiet!

Quarantine can be a lot of things! A 4th house thing, a Saturn thing, a Neptune thing, a Virgo thing (perhaps to cleanse all the germs/viruses around an area). smile

Several days ago, Elsa titled her newsletter “I’m Backing Up”.

That’s the energy I’m moving towards now. I am sensing a little friction between me and some of my clients or their family members. We were fine until the retrogrades. Starting this past weekend, I had problems. So I’m starting to bite my tongue and get quiet. Stay out of the way. As for Facebook–I’m going to stop posting memes that share my opinions on anything, and stick to sharing photos of my garden or other pedestrian stuff. People are pissing me off over there. I’m sure I’m pissing them off, too. One nurse, who I used to work with, tried to warn the public about COVID and has since washed her hands of it. She just posts personal life stuff now. I think I’ll follow suit. So, guess what?

I’M BACKING UP. 😶

In an odd coincidence (?) which I am taking very personally 🙂 … Saturn went right up to my ascendant – EXACTLY: 1.57 … stopped dead in its tracks, peeked into my 1st house and… turned right around!

It is now back in my 12th house with Pluto and Jupiter, all of them retrograde!

I actually don’t mind. I did some serious transformational work with Pluto and Saturn in my 12th house, where they were also opposite my moon in Cancer. I learned many things, including how to transcend stuff.

But I did not feel solid yet, hence my not minding “backing up” right now.

I lost my life companion (who happened to be a cat) last fall. He served so many purposes, filled so many roles, met so many of my needs… and then he was no more (it was unexpected and sudden). I am actually surprised and pleased at how well I coped and adapted. I know I was in literal shock for months, and the grieving goes on. But still, it was all somehow healthy.

But I have been feeling myself slip back since the shock wore off, which happened to coincide with the onset of the pandemic, more or less. I have fought various levels and types of depression for decades (perhaps my entire life, almost).

I feel the grip coming back. And I do not want to return to the clutches of that awful, awful demon/disease/whatever it is. I need to get control of myself back. I had acquired new tools during the Pluto-Saturn transit through my 12th house. I feel they have slipped through my fingers. I need to get them back.

So, depressed? Alas, yes. But not because of the pandemic. Accentuated by the circumstances (pandemic) and their consequences, yes, for sure.

So: I’m backing up, and I trust I will regain what I had gained then lost. With Jupiter now in the mix, this time my mastery will expand! 🙂

Good news this morning! As of today, my municipality has re-opened the waterfront boardwalk, the urban and bush trails, all parks – urban and countryside, and all such places! Yay!

That will greatly help in the restoration of my mental health, as being out in nature has always been a key tool in my health box.

You know, I’m not a person massively possessed of positive thoughts; and in these times my ‘non positive’ thoughts are the only thing keeping me company! At the moment I am having a bit of a nihilist moment about society. There was a Rick and Morty Episode called ‘Rest and Ricklaxation’ that I think summarises it well.

Like, my ‘inner work’ so to speak has kind of figured out what was going on when I was younger and why things never seemed to “take off”. Basically having insights into how messed up society is is not especially pleasant. The thoughts and feelings that push against that (my calculation of karma to such individuals, and the processes of getting us to a more positive, meritocratic society) go into further negativity and require faith. But the reward I imagine will be quite great if that faith is met.

It strikes me one good thing about negativity being done to you, in my case very low level, is that you are able to one day respond to that. Peoples arrogance should be challenged.

I would have liked to have studied and played music in this time but trying to control my medical condition has made that very difficult. It is normally fine with a normal level of exercise but when I suddenly don’t have a reason for fairly ongoing exercise for eight hours a day things get difficult.

Finally getting control of it. But after parts of your time like that has been destroyed it is difficult to feel overtly positive. I am often in the phase of ‘recuperation’.

How I am handling it is St. John’s Wort. Deep loyalty to my branch of Christianity and sometimes Qi Gong. So I do not really allow my mood state to go too low for too long I’m always doing something but there is a bit of gravity sucking me down. Even with this am happier at home than at work.

I’m currently surrounded by people who have a LOT of heavy things going on. Saturn/Pluto.

A child in jail, possibly for life. A dying pet. Fear of job loss or a pay cut. Working long hours for hazard pay, and risking exposure to the virus every day. Mounting debts even while more major expenses loom on the horizon. 

Stress levels are ramping up in my housemates and clients. What do you even say. I have heavy stuff going on, too. Heavy debt load, with major car repair/maintenance coming up. More major dental work. Haven’t filed my taxes yet because I keep forgetting. My state is going to cut budgets across the board 14%. Thank you COVID. So that means my job could be affected as well-it’s funded by government resources. 

It’s like we’re all in our boats, praying we survive the storms in our lives. I just listen to people when they wig out or share their fears with me. What else is there to do? I’m out of answers.

By the way, I feel remarkably calm during all of this. It’s strange. I just feel like someone staring at a trainwreck while holding a beer.

Ha when I read your description…

I thought sounds like a modern day take of a Sabian Symbol description…

“Someone staring at a train wreck while holding a beer.”

The posting Moon at 28° Cancer & opp Jupiter. The feeling Moon calm in its own sign pulled strongly by Jupiter’s concentrated energy in Capricorn.
