Blame it all on Mercury Retrograde.....

I dabble a bit in astrology.......not as much as many people I know, but I am open to it.

One thing that happens a few times a year is the the planet Mercury goes retrograde...here's is some info on that from an astrology site......

"A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. This traditional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this optical illusion."

"On July 4, 2006, Mercury, the cosmic magician, turns retrograde in Leo, the sign of the Lion, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! This awkward period begins a few days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until July 29, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac."


Mercury goes retrograde 3-4 times a year, and usually I might have some slight difficulties in communication. More often I hear friends complaining about their troubles. But I have never, never, ever had such a bad period as the one we are going through now.

"Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry."

$400 in car repairs....many personal misunderstandings and resulting misery......this month has been frustrating. I am ready to go crawl in a hole and hide.

Mercury goes direct again on Sat. July 29th....two weeks from today. Can I make it?

Many situations can be effectively dealt with only by a vigorous shrugging of the shoulders.
