THE HITTING OF AN EMERGING NERVE

Forecast for Wednesday, October 7th
Gemini Disseminating Moon; Part 2

ॐOracular Mantra—it may be a bit more cumbersome today to communicate what you’re thinking and feeling, but that’s just fine…

Maybe the days vibrations will begin on a neurotic note?

Neurosis, by clinical definition, describes ‘a functional disorder in which feelings of anxiety, obsessional thoughts, compulsive acts, and physical complaints without objective evidence of disease, in various degrees and patterns, dominate the personality…’ though, of course, I mean to intend a much more playful meaning of this diagnosis…

Jung’s theory of neurosis is based on “the premise of a self-regulating psyche composed of tensions between opposing attitudes of the ego and the unconscious—a neurosis is a significant unresolved tension between these contending attitudes… although adjusted well enough to everyday life, the individual [loses] a fulfilling sense of meaning and purpose, and has no living belief to which to turn—there seems to be no readily apparent way to set matters right.”

In these cases, Jung turned to ongoing symbolic communication from the unconscious in the form of dreams and visions to better understand the mundanity of everyday life.

❝If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I’m neurotic as hell. I’ll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.❞
——Sylvia Plath

If something neurotic is emerging in your reality—beyond the current neurotic reality of the collective, of course—it might be more appropriate, as Mercury moves into its first of three oppositions to Uranus, to be playful with whatever it is.

And, of course, I say ‘neurotic’ playfully, as in something that triggers you, truly, but isn’t so stigmatized or clinical…

This opposition, especially through its eventual retrograde, will offer three opportunities for something brilliant, insightful, surprising, or off-putting to become normalized in your reality… these oppositions, however they manifest for you, are offering you expanded awareness and inspired consciousness.

Today’s neurotic revolution inspires and “sets the stage for a tumultuous process, which may lead to a new approach to the problems resulting from individualization… these repressed or oppressed instincts stage an emotional outburst, claiming their due…” though—again, in a more playful manner—these outbursts could break open toward new ways of thinking and feeling about a number of things.

Further… as Mercury exacts its first opposition to Uranus today at 9°37’—and will connect in opposition again, in retrograde, October 19th, and then a third and final time in November*… this degree through which this insightful opposition occurs associates itself to the element, unsurprisingly, of surprise…

At the very least—this degree resembles the hitting of a nerve.

Surprise!

❝There is a correlation between how seriously we take life and the number of problems we have.❞
——Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Either way, you are being given an opportunity to deal with something which—or someone with whom—you would rather avoid, or simply, possesses no solid comfort or firm understanding… before this issue becomes unruly or further triggered—why not hold yourself accountable to an inquiry of sorts… think of it as checks and balances.

Why not play with the pondering of a pointed perspective of something?!

Find a resolution to the madness, a solution toward the neurosis… though these solutions will by no means be immediate, or resolved quickly.

Again—this opposition will occur two more times* and be something of a process…

A significant aspect of Jung’s theory of neurosis is “how symptoms can vary by… hierarchy of discriminating psychological functions, giv[ing] each individual a dominant sensation, intuition, feeling, or thinking function preference with either an extroverted or introverted attitude—the dominant is quite under the control of the ego, but the inferior function remains a gateway for unconscious contents… this creates typical manifestations of inferior insight and behavior when extreme function one-sidedness accompanies the neurosis…”

In ordinary terms toward mundanity, this means that we protect ourselves so fiercely, sometimes to a neurotic degree, that sometimes we even protect ourselves against the joy and fulfillment we seek and yearn for…

Why not play with the neurosis?

❝And it’s bad—
To have eyes like neon signs
Flashing open, open, open
Open
Open all the time…
And it’s bad—
That I wrapped you in a fantasy
And that I carry you with me
Mmm… but lately it seems like everybody’s
Joined at the hip
And I’m still fancy
Oh, so fancy—fancy free…❞
——Ani DiFranco; “Good, Bad, Ugly”
