Apparently Im Associating With Horoscopes Now

I’ve always been an emotional guy but lately I’ve been pretty internally unstable. My friend, M.O., came home tonight and told me she realized I was going nutty because I’m a Cancer and it’s currently “Mercury Retrograde.”

She half heartedly joked about it while also acknowledging my behavior has been off. Thats for certain.

I don’t really know what I’m trying to say other than I found my emotions lately to highly correlate with the horoscope below:

“Get ready for emotional overload. The more information (or misinformation) you're bombarded with, the more tempted you are to retreat into your shell - but that only prolongs the inevitable. Moody doesn't even begin to describe how you'll feel as you attempt to deal with the chaos that can be caused by Mercury retrograde. And when things in your beloved home break down, you may start to spin out. Your attempts to insulate yourself from the effects could backfire. You want to remain gentle, nurturing, and loving, but this is a trying time for you.”

I did feel much more in essence today. It was a long one and there were certainly a score of informational inputs, just like there has been for the past couple of weeks, but I was able to be resolute within myself and find quite a bit of peace around everything.


Beth, this one’s for you. Something about the last sentence above made me think of Ice Cube’s: It Was A Good Day
