Thanks for all your comments everyone! Keep 'em coming. Who's watching news of the US stock market today? Can we pin that on Mercury Retrograde, too?

My brand new laptop crashed. I bought it because my old one crashed. I have my own business, so everything was on there... accounting, etc. The result, after some controlled anxiety followed by deep thought on what I can do about it, and then ultimately paying a pretty sizeable amount to get it 'fixed'..... 3 months of information to be recreated. I know... could have been worse.

My worst Mercury in Retrograde moment was waking up on my birthday morning with my mom coming down the hallway on her way to the garage, carrying our 13 year old cat, with mom saying "Sunshine died last night."

After two months in a temporary role, and after receiving fantastic feedback about my performance, I suddenly got terminated. Man, mercury handed me a doozy. So I'm back where I was three months ago.

The other day my car started misbehaving in a most troubling way. At present I am not sure what it is and am hoping it is something easy and CHEAP like bad gas or something. I can't really afford to take it in to the shop right now so I had been planning to just "ride it out" for a bit, keep sending it car love vibes, and see what happens. However, now that I have learned about the power of Mercury Retrograde to mess up communications, technology, and travel, I am not feeling so confident about my intellectual/emotional powers for healthy car persuasion through focused positive thinking. If I could, I would zoom that car in to a mechanic for a diagnosis, and perhaps a little work ,in order to prepare for the long three weeks of Mercury Retrograde induced tension and break-down potential.

But - as I have said - I can not afford to deal with the car so I will need to continue on with Plan A (the "please car please" swear and prayer) as I knock, shake, and shimmy my way to and from the job that makes me feel like I have no voice or value. In the event that I should break down I will enjoy the Mercury Retrograde opportunity to just relax and reflect on my life while the rest of the world rolls on by to whatever crisis or challenge their days might deliver. But, maybe just maybe, the car trouble will resolve itself because I want it to, and the poor communications I am currently experiencing at work will end, and all other uncomfortable issues and recent irritating factors will disappear during this backward period. So, I am nervously looking forward to the month of August, because whatever happens - I am preparing to relax and reflect! Peace, brightness, and wishes of strength and a sense of humor to all of you.

PS - If any of you have a psychic connection to my car and can send me your impressions and my car your healing blessings, I will be very grateful. :)
