Pretty messed up stuff.. but today I am feeling somewhat whole again...the lesson of letting go is smacking me in the face.. you'd think I'd have gotten it by now.

Guess I must gird my loins for another week of abject sadness and depression..

But this is how the moodiness has played out for me.. there were, of course, outside influences as in life changing bummers..But as I said, I am starting to feel like I am emerging..

I see my life as an unfolding set of opportunities to awaken.

8. Well, it sounds like a golden opportunity.

Try this (from The Law of Divine Compensation)

Dear God,

I give this quiet time to You.
Please dissolve my thoughts of stress and fear
And deliver me to the inner place
Where all is peace and love.


....allow yourself to switch gears. When you find you are ready, look honestly over the landscape of your material life. With the power of your imagination pour a holy light over everything you see. Ask to be shown all you need to see and know, and your spirit will guide you.


Everytime I read this beautiful little book, I find a jewel I had missed the first time around.

I did try the pouring of the golden light, and was amazed at the shift.
It also seems to make the corners of your mouth want to turn up towards a smile.


Thanks, Rick for guiding us!

not sure how much of that is the cold, cloudy and raw weather though.

But a lot of hostility in some quarters out on DU today.

And a lot of hostility in the phone calls I'm taking at work. Barely repressed hostility from my boss in my 1st one-on-one with him. I've seen flashes of it here and there since day one, and I'm not sure why.

17. I am seeing the same thing. When I saw the Meta threads, I thought it seemed like just

an extension of what I am seeing all around me today.

There seem to be three themes: first people flying off the handle in ways that are characteristic but taken to a new extreme, second people feeling overwhelmed by their responsibilities to people they have to care for, third people feeling a loss of control and lashing out verbally at innocent bystanders.

I am seeing this on all fronts. It feels more fundamental than a lunar phase.

Thanks to Ricochet for the suggestions on how to proceed though. They are actually very appropriate for how to deal with what I'm experiencing personally these days.

A lunar phase repeats itself every month. THis is the Moon opposite 6 planets in Pisces. Put it all together. Massive. Massive. It's just forming now.

A lot of the ugliness you are seeing is the Uranus square Pluto too

25. No

it will fade in a week or two, BUT while the Moon goes through Virgo in the middle of this, it will change. That will be (EST) Monday, 2/25 around 1:30am through Wed. 2/27 around 8am. Virgo will change 2 things.
1. It won't be as moody as the Virgo archetype does well at corralling emotions.
2. Very important: we will be INSPIRED to do something about our developing spiritual practice, i.e., yoga, mediation, journaling, Tai Chi, etc. Virgo will put heavy emphasis on BEING PRODUCTIVE. Put the two together.

the further you get your boat away from shore (safety, reality) the less likely you are to turn around to see
how far you have drifted. Too painful. Easier to blame someone else.

22. excellent description

thank you!

In the case of my boss, I've concluded it is fear-based. Every manager I've had in the last few years has feared me, because I am usually decades older and more experienced in life and work than they. And the work environment right now is so incredibly fear-based. I suspect things are terribly wrong at the new job, at least with the client I'm assigned to. The client has lost a lot of "retail" business (versus institutional/pension type business) and it's easy to blame us. The reality is that the entire stock market has lost a large number of individual investors, who woke up to the reality of how gamed the system is and have gotten out asap since '08.

Everybody else, too, yes. Easier to attack someone than acknowledge their mistakes and/or feel their own fear.

I also find the more relaxed and confident I feel, look and act, the more I come under personal attack. The more patient I am with others, the more impatient they are with me, too. A lot of them looking for a fight to avoid dealing with whatever.

Sorta like confusion searching for an answer in a get-to-the-core-of-it-all way, as opposed to moodiness striking out at others?

Response to southerncrone (Reply #31)

35. This could be moodiness striking out at others, depending how log-jammed you are.

But IT'S MUCH more of your INNER VOICE SPEAKING VERY LOUDLY AND SURELY TO YOU. Take advantage. It's a very positive thing, when the word MOODY is used here, haywire!

The moodiness is probable to the fact that it's a different mood than what one is used to, and many people tend to blame
others when that happens. Moods are seen negatively because we see ourselves as "out of control." Which is EXACTLY WHAT IS NEEDED! Get out of CONTROL, i.e., let the new Neptunian spiritual archetype come in and SURRENDER TO IT (Our own self). The "struggle" comes in when "we" don't want to give in to what SEEMS external. (Neptune) but it's actually our most intimate, godlike part of us. Do NOT try to wrestle it, or figure it out. Let it be; let yourself BE moody if that happens. Clarity will come the week after. It will be good unless you have your spiritual doorways cemented shut, then there will be trouble.

I've been struck by the insights that have come...like..such and such happening has helped the pain of another thing approaching, etc..plus... you mention struggle...the thing is, I feel like I have been struggling for awhile now, and on some level it feels like I may be more comfortable with this than the success I seek. I found that to be astonishing...

I've also observed that the men DUers of the Pacific Northwest are less accepting of southern states than the women DUers of the same area. You'll see the phrase "slave states" used most often by that group. Too bad they don't like to acknowledge the existence of the rather red halves of their own states up there...

55. I feel like I just dumped a huge burden.

Without going into a huge amount of detail, something that I have worked and planned for over the last couple years has been under almost constant challenge since about Thanksgiving. Much back and forth, stuff going awry unexpectedly, screwed up paperwork, lawyers, attempts to salvage, feelings of futility, anger at things I considered unjust and unfounded, MORE lawyers for trips to court (!) and now, finally, a trip to the Appellate Court. I had been sleeping about 4 or 5 hours a night, and it seemed like every day brought more problems and indignities with it. I felt like crap.

Dunno what shifted, but finally, things started to lighten up. The Appellate Court gave us the stay we asked for, and they agreed to fast track our decision. My attorney has been working like a dawg and suddenly, for the first time in a long time, I've been able to pick up a newspaper and not worry about what I'm gonna see.

Maybe it was my own realization that there have been some amazing good things that came out of the last few months--in spite of how painful it has been at times. Maybe it was my own decision/realization that it is gonna play out however it does--I've done as much as I can. I can't control it. I can only go along for the ride from here on out. If everything does play out in a way that I never envisioned I am ok with that. I've realized I simply don't have any choices left to make so I gotta let it roll. As Rick is fond of saying, "Let go and let God."

I have been sleeping just fine for the last few nights. We won't have a court decision for about two weeks, and I am convinced that they will find in a way that is just and fair. That's enough for me.

59. Absolutely great

You let go of doing it yourself (illusion) and let God, the only choice you had. Now it works. It's happening all around me. Letting go does not mean losing control, it means letting go of the imagination that holding (worry) on CAN accomplish anything. I'm so happy for you. Now, I have to talk myself into the same thing - a constant battle.

God is intervening into impossible situations in my life and my mouth is left open.

love you

holding on = worry = not trusting = manifesting what you don't want

we must spread this word over and over to all
