SI: 9/25 Serendipity Itinerary

SI: 9/25 Serendipity Itinerary

Your September 25th, 2020 SI, with the Moon exiting its journey through Capricorn to go Void of Course at 11:36p today, Friday 9/25, to re-emerge Direct in Aquarius at 2:08a in the wee hours of Saturday 9/26. The Moon will be direct in Aquarius through the weekend to enter its next Void of Course Astro Sign Interstice Monday 9/28 at 3:18a. All times given are EST In the USA.

Take the opportunity to engage in activities that you are both good at and love in a more free-spirited and possibly even a little eccentric way to blow out the pipes and refresh yourself for stronger re-connection with your loves. Take some time to NOT stay in your lane with yourself and get off-trail where Nature homes the great stuff.

Nevermind your mastery. Admitting mastery is no braggart or ego statement. The Master has failed more times than the student has tried. And, mastery leads to further discovery.

This weekend is a great time to discover things you otherwise would not have if you went through tried and true compulsory motions. Get off the figure eight technique in the corner and out on the ice or the track with some VROOM and fly a little. Duct tape a seat cushion to your toosh. That might make sense. The times you fall will be more fun when it’s more of a ploomp of a plop-bounce than a crash. And, when you don’t fall, the cushion might make for some great laughs.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Is there a lifetime of wisdom in YOUR 59-second tip of the iceberg? Try it. Close your eyes and play yourself back. What do you hear, and how does it come across to you? Do you hear anything new?

Go Inside and look out the window… look out the window of yourself (Temple of You) for 1min 02sec seconds, and record yourself on your phone or a tape recorder, Or Morse Code, however you roll.

Again, This Week, A Meditative Suggestion in Regards to This Week’s Music Selections

Rather than listen to the words as being from one person to another, or the artist to you or to another, will you allow the words to be yours spoken to you and your internal community? As if a play produced about you? Some of them may fall flat and not apply. Then again, some may spark something inside with this listening exercise. Dance along to your play if you feel to. Give it a go, and see what happens when you turn poetry/lyrics inward to speak to yourself as if they orginated from you to you.

Digital Daggers ~ Nothing’s Broken

Ruelle ~ Hold Your Breath

Au/Ra ~ Dance in the Dark

Patti Smith ~ Horses

There Are 2 Musical Pairs for You + Here’s the Bonus Blast From the Past. So Cool that this resurfaced.

Resurfaced from the cardboard box treasure chest they slept through their long-form perennial slumber…

Ok, I couldn’t resist. There felt no reason to. Gratuitous add. This has become a Go-To. Their chemistry is just HAWT

Here We Go into Your Serendipity Itinerary for September 25th

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Most everyone below has excellent new posts this week! Think you’ve seen them before? Me, too. Then, there was this week. The vibe felt quieter Again this week, though longer looking, and maybe intensities were simply wonderful in balance. Expansive even in simple expressions.

About Martha: After thirty years teaching writing in San Diego, in 2014, I returned to live in my home state, Colorado. I live in the remote, beautiful and mysterious San Luis Valley.

Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined.

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within, and looks like the DNA orbits within us as well. Go figure. Know thyself and know the universe just took on a simple tone as well.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

  1. Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud

    Don’t know about anyone else but it wasn’t a good day today. I’m a little Erin Brockovich whistleblower on a project in my city and it’s been exciting, that’s cool, but then got a hoover email from the one who triggers my PTSD so that has a physical effect on me that takes days to clear. I literally do not understand why anyone would want to pull the wings off of a butterfly.

     
    • Jordan Hoggard

      September 24, 2020 at 8:00 pm

      A(wo)men to your Erin Brockovich whistleblower, and I hear you on the day’s qualities. I was immersed in work, so somewhat insulated though I could feel the wolves at the door so to speak of The Moon, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn all in a close grouping in Capricorn. Very Saturnian Harsh quality flowing over through the other three.

      I just didn’t answer the door and let them move on along to bully elsewhere, though I mined their pockets to line my own a bit as the turnabout felt to be fair play, consequences of the unwelcome knocks. It felt like a day where if someone opened with a knock knock joke that my 1st inclination would be to say, “Door’s open,” to shut it down.

      I’m sorry to hear that one of those types who viscerally triggers you where the concussion of the impact reverberates across several days. That butterfly torture image is powerful, and not in any good way whatsoever literally and/or metaphorically. The weakness of cruelty is such an abomination of an effort. And, who could do that to Beauty? That That it is an outrage is what comes to mind in regards to pulling the wings off a butterfly.

        Thank you, it’s been a struggle. I told him that once, that what he had done was so very cruel, I am a true innocent, to pull the wings off…and I don’t think he’s capable of comprehending, a narcissist /ZERO empathy for anyone but himself. Always the victim. I don’t know how to permanently cut the psychic cords/trauma bonds, not after 29 yrs. With all the planetary stuff going on on top of personality disorders, I think I’ll just stay home and make more mini-chimes for my fairy garden hahaha. Stay strong and healthy yourself!

        Can you simply cease all contact with him? May sound deceptively simple, though regardless of encumbrances or responsibility or pets or even children, it sounds Like an unhealthy drag. Are you able to cut the contact and specifically block the number(s) email(s)? Those kinds of people tend to orbit back around every 2-3 months like clockwork, and I will say you have zero responsibility to respond at all. Ever.

        Is that an option? If not, is it doable to make it one?

        I have, I have told him that I will get a restraining order because he was showing up uninvited and with gifts, and calling incessantly — (he had a real psychotic break a couple months ago) and it slowed down his communications, but every 3weeks he’ll still contact me and it’s not enough harassment to get a TRO but I get affected emotionally. I do not respond, I am completely no contact, but I keep them in case I need them for the TRO. I have an attny that will do it no problem but I really just want him to stop. We have no minor children, he did what he did, destroyed our family, and I accept that. What he really wants is me PLUS all the others and can’t accept my NO means NO. So sorry to vent!

         
      • Jordan Hoggard

        September 24, 2020 at 11:38 pm

        It sounds to me like I would recommend that you needn;t keep the contacts anymore. Sounds like you have plenty for a fact structure for your atty? Invoke the TRO and move on. Cur. Cut the cords legally, and let others take responsibility for the situation.

        No problem you venting. None at all. When it’s time, it’s time. It does, though, sound like it’s time to let your (atty) allies take the wheel and drive him right out of your life.

        You have a beautiful way about you. Mermaids. Gardens. I bet the Mermaids would have already made him fish food. Kudos for sticking in there, though… does sticking in there translate into taking responsibility for things you shouldn’t? Delegate it to your Attorney(s) and be done with it. It obviously upsets you, and if you continue to allow that, then YOU are continuing to allow it regardless of who has responsibility for instigating it.

        Does that make sense?

        ANd, the gifts. Oh boy. Always the gifts, as if he isn’t enough on his own. That sounds like a full-on Angler Fish. OHHHHH Shiny! And, then gulp, back into the poison stomach.

        I made an Empathic SIlence Mirror one year when my situation was both a Her and her Daughter of same. I am more thankful for that moment than most any other. ALL them. Their words. No affect on me. No cause for me to affect a role in that context anymore.

        I say =, engage your attorney(s) and be done with it. Isn’t it simply holding you back? If so, that’s now on you. You have zero responsibility to engage things that are not healthy for you, regardless of how much sense they make. Your truth is not in the hands of others, though I sense it is being fondled by him. And, that’s not acceptable, is it? Your NO means… nothing other than Get Out. Play the horror movie, GET OUT. Along with your attorney(s)… bye bye to that detriment?

        The only issue tying us at all is that I am dependent on his financial support. Thanks to him, I never worked, only supported his businesses. Im sure it was part of his control issues, but hindsight and all that. That is his only thread to me. If only I had my own source of income but I don’t. I still don’t have to talk to him, but that makes him feel entitled to manipulate me. I am so so sorry you have had a similar experience. Only those of us who have endured this hell can understand it. That’s for sure. I’ve had enough therapy and done enough research to comprehend people like that but when you are a real person with real emotions and ability to really connect, it’s HELL. Again, thank you for letting me vent and I’m sorry if my story triggered you.

        You’re most welcome. Better to vent than stuff. Gotta keep the insides fresh.

        Oh, that’s the only issue? That’s a big cord to cut.as you are the balance once it is cut to pre-assure you are on your feet when you do. If you decide to build a self-support system so you can uninstall the cord, please accept my compliment to your courage. It takes courage for you to live and endure in that kind of connection where it’s dependent rather than interdependent.

        Not to worry, no trigger over here. My several years of that + 3+ years of Brainspotting has me in a place around those kind of people where I have empathy and compassion for them as … as Robin Williams out it, “they may need it the most,” THOUGH personally, for me, it helped me develop an awareness to sniff it out and do my level best to steer clear… as, the best way to argue a Narcissist is… to not do so. They’re like the Tar Baby in the Brer Rabbit story. Once touched, it’s damn difficult to get that stuff off. I see how that puts you in a precarious position. I will say, though, you DO have your garden, flowers, and butterflies. I think I learned more from my garden than I ever did from any teacher.

        Thank you so much for your wise words. I have a friend who told me about brainspotting, so you’re the second one. I am working very hard to heal from what happened. Any and all suggestions are helpful. Hindsight again, but if only I hadn’t devoted my entire life to him and supporting his ideas, I could have been financially independent. It’s what I tell young people now. Oh well. It’s me that needs to learn how to handle the triggers; I gave up trying to help him or get him to go to a psychiatrist or a shaman or a neurologist a long time ago. It is what it is. There must be a lesson for me in it that I’m not learning. I’ll try harder.

        You’re most welcome. Maybe trying harder is part of the problem? In Brainspotting, it’s when I relaxed, let go, literally surrendered and only listened in Empathic Silence (my phrase, nothing official in the Psych community to my knowledge) when… that’s when things opened up infinitely, and at the same time became almost literal and simple and clear. I’d be curious what your experience of it would be. It took about 3 sessions for me to get out of my head and also simply acclimate out the primal distrust of something new. It’s when I realized that rather than resisting letting this Brainspotting thing in through my Inner Castle Walls… “OH! Duh. Lol, Why Am I closing myself of from myself?” BOOM, the 1st Part just appeared. There’s a wonderful book I recommend by Richard C. Schwartz and Internal Family Systems, “You Are The One You’ve Been Waiting For.” Here’s a link to it on Amazon.

        Yes, glad you gave up trying to help him, and help yourself to your own inner self-support instead. Good for you.

        Excellent. It’s one of the only one of its type I recommend. Reading it is almost like, “Of course! Though wait, I already knew That…” Oh, it’s almost so simple that whether I knew ot or not, it gave me a whole different perspective and tool set from the subtle shift of perspective. It intensely dials in, and continues to provide many wonderful Self-experience assets.

        On their site, $25 https://ifs-institute.com/store/37

        It’s always been pricey, though the value is worth it. It’s not just another self-help book. I found it to be self-support.
