Yes, folks...we are once again in the midst of a Mercury Retrograde. It started yesterday, (the planet Mercury traveling backwards) and it will continue through September 29th. Mercury is the planet that rules communication, travel, technology...so when it's running backwards...well, you do the math! Usually, there are only 3 Mercury Retrogrades per year, but I guess 2009 is special, because we'll have to put up with a 4th one starting December 26th. Just a little heads up for ya!
Between the stinkin' retrograde, and tomorrow being 9/9/09, and the full moon a few days ago, and the Swine flu, and the fires, and, and, and....AHHHHH.....the sky is falling, the sky is falling....Nah...it's not the end of the world...that doesn't come until December 21, 2012...the end of the Mayan calendar. You've heard about that right? Well, if you haven't, don't worry....cause Hollywood made a movie all about it. It stars John Cusack (one of my favs) and I'm sure it will help you learn everything you need to know about the end of the world. Cause if Hollywood says so, it must be true. Right? Of course right! Bahahahaha...
Honestly, I'm not as caught up in all this astrological stuff as some of you may think. However, I do believe there might be something to it...and even if it is all just a bunch of bullshit, at least I have something to blame for my fuzzy head, my forgetfulness, and rude people who do not answer my emails or return my phone calls...etc., etc., etc. I will tell you this: I am fiendishly backing up my work on my computer...call it superstitious or call it ridiculous, but better safe than sorry, my daddy used to say!
Mercury may be moving backwards causing all these feelings of sluggishness...but the fact is that the world, as far as I know, is still turning, and work awaits....I must get to it...I need to go feed the machine!
