People who know about astrology like to talk about it, especially during Mercury in retrograde. Have you noticed this? Lately?
They tell me that tomorrow Mercury ends its time in retrograde, meaning that my “what to do? what to do?” lament from last week will be over.
As I understand it, when Mercury is in retrograde, personal communication, well-reasoned-decisions and safe travels are, well– not so smooth here on Earth.
It is only after Mercury, the little bugger, exits this phase of its celestial movement that things return to their normal patterns out there among the stars.
While I’m not into astrology that doesn’t matter, does it?
Putting together the pieces of information that I’ve been told about this retrograde, I sense that Mercury does what Mercury wants to do. Mercury don’t care that I’m indifferent to the astrological explanation of its imperfect orbit’s impact upon the peoples of Earth.
Mercury is the honey badger of planets.
I’m sure that there’s a lesson here for me about learning to politely shrug when discussions turn to things that may not seem sensible to me.
I say this because throughout these last few weeks while Mercury has been in retrograde, I’ve come to understand in this life, no matter what happens in the skies or on the earth, there will always be someone with an alternate interpretation of the event.
And that earnest someone will find me, tell me about it and assure me that all will be well in my life once that bothersome Mercury gets on with things.
