Mercury Madness

Tell us your Mercury Retrograde mishaps for a chance to win!

Can you feel the Mercury Madness?! Mercury Retrograde strikes again from August 2-26, 2011, and we here at DailyHoroscope.com headquarters in Portland, Oregon are preparing ourselves for the usual onslaught of computer crashes, misfired emails and traffic jams. But that's ok, we love a challenge -- and we've also got a challenge for YOU!

In the spirit of remaining positive about Mercury madness, we want to ask you all to share your Mercury Retrograde stories so we can help each other prepare -- or laugh it off when it's too late.

This applies to mishaps like broken technology or miscommunication and travel delays, and to the positive side of MRx. For example, did you know Mercury Retrograde is a great time to relax and reflect on your life, and even to win back your ex!

Please leave a comment below or on the DailyHoroscope.com Facebook Wall and tell us what's happened to you during this or any other Mercury Retrograde period.

Just fill in the blank: My best or worst Mercury Retrograde moment was when __________________ .

I tried to post this comment a few times, but my computer kept malfunctioning. I guess we could blame that on the Mercury retrograde. My computer is a piece of junk anyways, so it's hard to tell.

I actually have a pleasant story. A special person in my life, that I haven't had much contact with over the last 7 months, actually reached out to me to include me in a very important event in his life. I was totally taken aback, but then realized Mercury was in retrograde; a time to reconnect with past relationships. I was able to help with what may be a turning point in his life. We even hugged for the first time since January. I actually thank Mercury for making this possible to, hopefully, put a dear friend back into my life. Plus he gave me a huge Toblerone as a thank you! Can't beat that~

On Friday July 29 I had to have the radiator replaced and luckily had just enough to loan against on my 401k and then yesterday it stormed for an hour; one of the two lightning strikes killed a surge protector and my phone, and then my toilet and bath got flooded with sewer water which then got into the carpet while I tried soaking the rest up with towels, now my carpets are drying but smell like ...well....ugh I just hope that is the worst of my luck this cycle

The planned trip to where we have been before, started two hours late. Once there, no phone , no internet service, even with a wi-fi card!! Then the water shut off at 1A.M. . Only to return after buying 18 Gals. of water. two travelers had to leave early, eating up most of a day, just to get to a train station and back. Had to stop 4 times on a 2 and a half hour trip home. While away , cats had jumped ontop of desk, knocking off HUGE shell, onto wi-remote , destroying it. Nice trip, but, as you see Mercury had it's madness!!

Well I know they say you're not supposed to start a new job during this crazy cycle, but I really needed this temporary job until I can find a full-time one. Well it takes my Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which is the least of my worries. Some of the women are not friendly and one of them gave me the cold shoulder all day and was rude when I would ask her a question. I really need this job, so I'll try to restrain myself, which is hard for an Aries.

On Thursday I was supposed to drive into town to get a paycheck. Only to discover that all of the keys were in the other car - already in town! I had to wait for two hours to get the keys, then the check wasn't ready. But, now that I'm reading Robyn's comment, I think I got off easy. I may have to go kiss my fridge. :)

OMG!! Do I have a list for you!! LOL! First, we moved, 3 days later, our CAR died! THEN, 1 day later , the FRIDGE died with ALL our food on the HOTTEST DAY OF THE YEAR!! Then, the REPLACEMENT ALSO was no good, taking another 3 hours to get it running right! THEN<> my fiancee started working part-time & THAT went south, furthering our delay in getting a new car! Oh, well, I am a survivor! :) Keep on ROCKIN' & TRUCKIN'!!! * Blessings to all! ^_^ Best karmic events to come....*

AGAIN.
