Now this is a fun post! This is just merely my impression of Mercury retrograde....my nemesis! Some of you may know about Mercury Retrograde and its wonderful affects!!! From April 9 – May 3, 2017 Mercury will be in Retrograde while in earth-sign Taurus, to fire-sign Aries. Now it's been in a shadow phase since March 27th. So you may have noticed a few of it's delightful signs......I have!!
Mercury rules all types of communication
Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.
I strongly recommend you DO NOT do any of the above until after Mercury goes direct!
Since Mercury rules the mail and the conveyance of information, be extra careful when sending important documents. This also goes for email! So confirm whoever you are sending these emails too DID indeed go to the intended recipient! Last year my ENTIRE email server went down and I was unable to send or receive emails for about a week!!! Not a fun thing!!!!
You will notice miscommunication will be ALL over the place! Whether it be with your kids, family, friends, clients it's gonna happen! You are going to have to laugh it off! And just reside to the fact your life is going to go upside down. And when it does what should you do? Grab a glass of wine, beer, coffee, tea water.....Whatever your drink of choice is and just accept it!
Mercury retrograde periods are famous for causing computers to crash and for machines, appliances, and other electronic devices to show signs of wear, requiring urgent repair. Backup your computer in advance. Weird things happen during these periods.
If you are driving any long distance during a period where Mercury is retrograde, bring extra maps (or make sure your GPS is up to date), make sure you have enough gas, and check that you have the correct address and clear driving instructions. On one of my jobs that I had to go to 3 separate times during Mercury Retrograde. GPS took me 6 different ways and it wouldn't have been so bad if I had a clue as to where I was at!! I got very lost coming home one of the times and Mercury Retrograde heard some not nice words come out of my mouth!!
So my words of advice from April 9th-May 3rd hang on folks....it's gonna be a bumpy annoying ride....And from March 26-April 8 (pre-shadow) and from May 4-21 (post shadow) it may be a little off. Grab your drink of choice and enjoy the ride! And just keep in mind........after these dates, if things go wacky....it's all you!
So this is a very impromptu blog post. I am always talking about positivity but I know we are all human! I try every morning to wake up with a positive thought....to make the day start out good. Well today that didn't happen. And yes my day started off on a crappy note. I was abruptly woken up by an issue I don't care to discuss lol and didn't get my moment of waking my way. So after an argument erupted, again a way I choose not to start my day (but having teenage kids this isn't always a luxury) I decided we were not going anywhere in this early spring snow storm Mother Nature decided to drop on us in New England. Which created an even worse argument, my blood pressure was soaring and I had only been awake 3.5 minutes at this point. Now typically I would tell my clients to take another few minutes to yourself and clear your head.....Ok your day didn't start out the way you like so stop now and change that. I was so worked up that clearing my head was furthest from my mind! So made my tea and the pick pick pick at me continued....remember teenage kids....not getting what they want.....NOT a good combination! At which point my mother calls (She used to call me a badger when I was my daughters age) I told her the situation and apologized for all those times I "badgered" her. She laughed and quickly hearing the tension in my voice got off the phone with me. So I sit down with my tea and computer to get ready to hunker down and am actually looking forward to nothing to do.....Hmmmmmm maybe now is the time I should've restarted my day....but no, I didn't. My cell phone goes off it's my son who stayed at his friends last night. "Hey are you home?" "Yup we are not going anywhere today and when you get to work text me to let me know you got there ok....the roads are horrible!" "Ahhhhh can you come help dig me out? I am stuck in his driveway" "On my way"
I HATE driving in the snow!!! I have done it too many times, seen too many accidents....I prefer to stay put but when it's your son you go. I threw on clothes grabbed shovels jumped in my 2 wheel drive rear wheel drive truck (another reason I hate driving in the snow) annnnnnd got stuck in my driveway. Now I am stressed! How am I going to get him out of his friends driveway if I can't get out of my own. Well somehow, someway with out AAA I managed to get out....AND got to him and got him out with 3 teenagers pushing and me behind the wheel. So I knew when I came home before I pulled in I needed to snowblow or we would have the same situation tomorrow. And you guess it....putting the snow blower away....it got stuck out front. That was the moment of YUP I AM THROWING IN THE TOWEL FOR TODAY. Shut off the snowblower, which will remain where it is at until this melts tomorrow, walked inside and made a cup of tea. It was then that I said ok I am starting this day over and taking a breath and thinking about the positives of today.
*My son is safe at work
*My daughter and I are safe and warm at home
*The driveway is snowblowed
*Sandbar/lake season is right around the corner (a month away until memorial day)
*I am starting a job I have dreamed about for years on Monday!
The point of this post is because we are all human. We all have bad days but a bad day doesn't make for a bad life. Find a minute in your day to be thankful! Don't ruin tomorrow because of today!
Hi there! I am new to the blogging thing so bare with me. I have had a long path at life and this year I decided to change that. The Law Of Attraction right? Positive thinking brings positve action. This blog is about the research I have done on making my life better.
