I’ve had a Mercury obsessed day; researching, writing and wondering how every one is doing in this, the first of four retrograde periods of 2009!
I’m not doing so well in certain areas; pretty damn average in others!
Not one but two punctures as Mercury went retrograde meant I was lucky NOT to be driving the car at the time! A more capable beloved was at the wheel that day, and thankfully will be putting me thro’ my wheel changing challenge in time for the next retrograde phase. I had a flat myself last year in a retrograde phase y’see. The first in 36 years of driving too! Luckily, a handsome young man came to my rescue, and changed said flat tyre for me. I am not taking any chances this year tho and intend to become proficient at changing wheels no matter how hard it is, just incase!!!!
So that’s were Mercury affected travelling!
He’s also hit me, personally, with communications!
I’m finding it very hard to write. Wrods (see) do not flow. In fact they stick in my keyboard as they do in my throat! But, today I have persevered; my spell checker working over time as my fingers tap out a load of ole garbage spelt like only I can spell in my haste to get them damned words out while the limited flow is a-flowing! <deep in take of breath> My spelling used to be quite good btw, until I started to learn Welsh back in ’91! I don’t know exactly what happened but my spelling went out of the window, and I still can’t speak that much Welsh either-but at least I can spell it! <Chuckle>
So I have come up with a cunning plan (Mercury also rules cunning…did you know that, I didn’t ’till today) that does not involve a turnip or even a swede, but does involve planning ahead, and being self-aware.
Rather than holding my head in my hands in despair and blaming Ole Mercury for the problems I find befalling me during him going (seemingly) backwards in the sky, I’m going to note what befalls me and take it as a sign that this, what ever it may be, needs looking at, working on, improving, refining and honing, and thus avoiding next time round. Hopefully!
This has been the eureka moment of my combined research today; Mercury in retrograde causes repeat events to return again and again until they are sorted my son!
So I’m going to learn how to change that puncture; wirte that novel; say difficult things with kindness and compassion; and get things done with a little forward planning!
