Apparently Mercury is in Retrograde again.
This has become the equivalent of a week of crazy PMS only to see what has been causing the crazy and the dawning in your mind of Ohhhhhhhhhh. Well now it all makes sense!
I’m not sure how long this bitch has been retrograding but this vacation was perfectly timed.
I am weary of being surrounded by negative energy, shitty communication and just general all around funk. Work has the usual stresses that just comes with this time of year. Budgeting. No money because: non-profit in Oklahoma. Audit. But this year it has been soul-sucking. And whatever it is…is just pounding on every single person up there. It’s hard. For everyone.
And apparently Mercury isn’t helping, for fecks sake.
My hope is that this long weekend will refuel all of us. I know this time away will do some healing good for my soul. Isn’t that the way the Universe works though? The hours leading up to refreshment will just suck you dry. Cosmically designed to make us appreciate what we have in all forms.
Sitting by the fire, conversations with friends, getting time away with my husband. That man grounds me and talks me off the ledge with such grace it’s like his super power. We have plans for this life and talking about them makes me excited. Being away from the things of man. That excites me.
I’ve turned off my work phone. I will have mine on, for emergencies and photos but my goal is to stay away from the internets once we get to the mountains. I’ve got some books to read. Some podcasts to listen to. Some music to enjoy.
This time tomorrow I’ll be surrounded by a national forest and will need long sleeves.
Take THAT Mercury!
