Ok – is it just me, or is this whole “Mercury in Retrograde” something new? Yeah, yeah, I know its not NEW NEW. Maybe its just life in the era of social media that I just feel like I’m hearing about it all the time. Seriously, up until like a year ago I never really knew what the deal was with Mercury – but now it seems like every 8-12 weeks we’re being warned to gird our loins in anticipation of some f&*ked up planetary alignment thingy that’s going to wreak total havoc on all the important stuff we have to do for the next month or so.
A friend wrote on Facebook recently “I wish I never knew about Mercury” and I think she has a point. Is it like a placebo effect. Maybe I am programming things to go wrong during these dark times on the astrological calendar just because I am expecting that they will? Or is the shit truly hitting the fan because of the stars. Who’s right? Hell, how am I supposed to know. But I’ll tell you, the last 3 times I’ve known about Mercury being Retrograde, its been a bit of hairy ride. All sorts of crazy things as simple as messed up paperwork at the office to collapsed real estate deals have gone down while Mercury has been Retrograding.
Truthfully – what the hell is retrograde anyways? Does it meant that Mercury is really into John Hughes movies and Duran Duran? That would really suck to have a real estate deal collapse because of Duran Duran. Stop living in the past Mercury so I can get my shit together NOW (and not in like 10 days from now). I’m too busy for your shenanigans!
Perhaps ignorance can be bliss, don’t you think?
