Day 290– January 23, 2015

Mercury starts in retrograde today. The Astrology counsels:

“Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

When Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.”

I have been warned against big change. Avoid signing contracts, buying new electronics (as they may be “glitchy”), and starting new projects. Plan extra time for travel as buses and planes will be delayed. Back up hard drives as computers will fail.

Basically, hold tight until the end of retrograde on February 11 at 7am. Waaaah! This was supposed to be my time for change. I want a job! I want to resolve with Greg! I don’t want to stay in this somnambulant, sulky stasis.

Mercury counsels patience and reflection, two paths I need to walk. More than enough has already changed. Let the wheel stop turning for once.
