Yeah, count me among those who thought that was a lot of hogwash… until I started tracking it in my journals. After several yrs, I can definitely say, Mercury Retrogrades & Virgos do not mix.
Here are the ones for 2009:
Sunday, January 11th, 2009 through Sunday, February 1st, 2009
Wednesday, May 6th, 2009 through Saturday, May 30th, 2009
Sunday, September 6th, 2009 through Tuesday, September 29th, 2009
Saturday, December 26th, 2009 through Friday, January 15th, 2010
Let’s see.. in that first one I:
Lost a dear friend thru mis-communication
Quit my job
Ended up in therapy
If you think I’m making all this up, check this out. Evidently Virgos who are into writing are the worst-hit. Oh, Joy.
And if you look at that list above, Mercury Retrogrades affect about 1/4 of the danged year. My thought is, I also sleep 1/3 of the yr, right? So could I please just sleep thru the Mercury flippin’ Retrogrades? Seriously, the less I do & say, the better off I’ll be. Maybe I’ll invent a M-R muzzle. Or a retreat house for Virgos during “That time of the year.”
I’m determined to figure out how to deal with this. I’m trying to get all my ducks in a row (lining up the packers & movers, getting the oil changed, etc) beforehand. Unfortunately, I also have a visit in the middle of this w/my Aunt & Uncle, and then will be driving w/a Prius full of stuff across the country. What could go wrong, yeah?
My best bet may be to just apologize right now for anything I say or do during that time… And make sure my AAA membership is paid up.
