This Mercury Retrograde was the worst ever for me. In one day, I fell as I was crossing a river and took with me my Droid cell phone, iPod, and iPod player, all of which got wet. I was later able to save all but the cell phone. But, later that day, I found that I could not drive home because one of my headlights was out. The next day, as I was replacing the bulb in the headlight, I found that my sunglasses were broken.

The week before that I was camping and my cell phone lost its charge. When I took my granddaughters to the beach and my son and daughter-in-law could not reach me, they freaked out and left work to try and locate all of us. I had to answer to their anger over that.

During an inspection of my home, I failed due to a blown-out light bulb and not knowing where the carbon monoxide detector was located. These issues were easily remedied, but I had to schedule another inspection which requires me to be home all day.

Two of my doctors left their practices. One of them had a personal injury and the other one opened up her new practice which will not take my insurance.

The list goes on. It has been very trying!

And to wrap up my miserable 2011 Mercury Retrograde, I didn't get the job I interviewed for, my tax payment AND car payment both went astray, and I am broke. So much for a fresh start! Bleah!

My worst Mercury Retrograde moment was when a stranger started making passes at me while out to eat (with a friend) and in less than 2 minutes I had to get management because he'd gone looney as was threatening me/had invaided my personal space (almost touching my knees & leaning across my chair into my face). FUN.

*Sooo ready for Friday* lets see...I got rejected by my friend/"more than friend", my car's check engine light going on and off for about 2 weeks now, the miscommunications about my scheduled work time, etc...on the positive side however I didn't sign any contracts over the past 4 weeks(in fact, i was about to set up a new cell phone contract until I reflected upon it and ended up getting a no-contract prepaid phone which I am very happy with) and all the "set-backs" as far as buying property only seems to have lined me up for the perfect lot, with only a few more details(thanks Virgo:P ) to work out after the Retrograde is over...all in all, I've had worse MRs before, but still, it'll feel nice when things start to go in that forward direction again;)

Well well well, MR strikes again! This month alone, I've had one laptop crashing non-stop, an external HD crash, a (rather hefty) paycheck lost in transit, and THREE of my best rings lost/stolen. Cannot wait for the 26th!

Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter join forces in get-it-done Virgo throughout the entire week. Virgo is the sign of the caregiver, making it the perfect time to find compassionate solutions for complex problems. Mars also hooks up with Saturn on Wednesday, pushing us to get out of our ruts and take some risks. Action and change can bring with them feelings of fear, anxiety and suspicion, which will become evident at the Lunar T-Square between the Moon, Mars, Neptune, and Saturn on Thursday, and Mars' exact square of Neptune on Friday. Try not to get swept up into unnecessary drama. ... continued »
