Mercury Retrograde and Pets? It is not an official thing but it should be.
Perhaps assessing the companion animal situation should be a standard Mercury Retrograde warning, along with “back up thy data” and “don’t put your signature on anything that matters.”
The slapstick treachery of Mercury Retrograde is well known. U.F.O sightings & appliances breaking down. Mixed messaging where you go to forward your smutty yet so-hilarious observation re X to a friend but send it to X instead.
But Mercury Retrograde has another “side-effect” – weirdness around our companion animals.
Mercury Retrograde Heightened Possibilities
It is more likely that –
- Pets run away or take up residence at your neighbors. Your relationship with the neighbors may or may not involve a weird dynamic or flirtation as you discuss the animal.
- Animals will turn up at your place with the intention of charming their way into your abode.
- You will feel inspired on impulse to acquire a new pet. Bonus Mercury Retrograde points for it being an animal you’d always said you hated.
- An animal companion who passed on already will visit you in a dream or similar manifestation. Perhaps this is because, during Mercury Retrograde, “normal” transmission is somehow suspended?
In the last few weeks, I have noticed that the signs regarding lost pets are more prolific & twice, people have come to my door to ask if i own the rabbit they found or – weirdly – an axolotl.
And coming home just now, there is a new sign up for a lost Lorikeet.
Is the mode for keeping birds in cages dying out? It seems so old-school.
It may be sad for the owner but i like to think that the lost lorikeet is having a Jupiter transit and currently soaring high above the Blue Mountains, catching the cross-winds and wilfully swooping into lavish valleys to feast on fresh bright-berries. Do you have any Mercury Retrograde and pets tales?
