And this week (this whole next month +) with Mercury in Retrograde, things are starting not do as I intended. As if on call. "It’s a bumpy ride this week. The planets are in transition, and so are we. And while I don’t and won’t blame the stars for cranky attitudes, as most of us know, shifts—emotional, psychological, spiritual, or physical—are often uncomfortable, especially if you’re feeling tired, overworked, stretched too thin, or just downright suspicious of what’s going to happen next. Anticipate resistance, yours or others’, as many of us try figure out how to handle these jarring rhythms of change. Just be aware, the pushback may simply be a reflexive action rather than a real refusal to cooperate. Also be prepared to feel out of sorts with no plausible explanation for your malaise. Of course, it’s not all bad news—plenty of people are thriving even in the midst of the current state of transformational intensity, particularly those who are living from the inside out, making peace with what is, even if that means breathing through moments of profound uncertainty, trusting that the eventual outcome will be positive...Mercury Retrograde begins today, so even if you want to hurry the adjustment process, you’re not likely to move through it too quickly. The best solution is to breathe, deeply, as often as necessary, and to give yourself and those you love plenty of time to acclimate...." or so says my favorite weekly astrological horoscope resource AquariumAge.com.
This is going to be a time for me decide whether to push through the uncontrollable nature of the next month or put the sensitive pieces aside until I can get back on top of what is going to happen.
