Mercury Warped My Mind

Filed in Uncategorized

Yeezus is a Gemini

Maybe this Mercury Retrograde is more like a neuro-transmission? There are definitely some new neural pathways being blazed and the old ones bull dozed.   By the time it is out of shadow – late June – the new neural pathways should be actually traversible.

Anyway, by popular request, an explanation of the Recent Comments widget. It seems that ANY Recent Comments widget is crashing the site and/or causing bad gateways BECAUSE there are now in excess of 200K Comments on here. So every time the widget goes looking for the newest ones – whenever someone accesses the front page – it has to scan them all. It is something like that. There is a better technical explanation but it is down until a better solution is found. And better a site that loads than the Recent Comments, right?

And, this from subscriber Abigail Stone re this delightful little transit…

So, here’s my Mercury retrograde tale. Up until this morning, it’s actually been a fairly smooth ride — a couple of speed bumps when I felt sure I broke the coffee machine and the brakes have started squealing whenever I put the air conditioner on and my credit card number got taken — but these are the kinds of things I was expecting.

And then this morning. I woke up without a voice. My doctor’s put me on voice rest for the week — no talking at all! And wouldn’t you know that I’m supposed to moderate a panel this week — Thursday night — on behalf of one of the magazines I write for — a nice career pat on the back. I’m hoping that maybe I’ll be able to speak above a whisper by then.

I’m crossing my fingers that Mercury direct will bring my voice back. Communication starts up again then, right?

Classic. But yes, communication starts up again, a.w.o.l. peeps re-enter one’s orbit and many a mystery resolves. Meanwhile it’s hell on the nerves.

I’m pretty sure #racheldolezal just brought the zap zone to the existential.

See you in a few weeks piabs

Birdstar I actually went to an aquaduct today. Pont du Gard in France. I mean how often does the word aquaduct come up in polite conversation?

mine has been non stop fuquery to the point its only comical now. Basically a totally forced kinda… physical and spiritual rest which forced me to fix my 2 year back problem!! hooray and touching wood!!! … and now I’m back getting fit again. And started investigating transcendental meditation…. being a gem meditation was not really the easiest idea to come to terms with. But yeah. I mean.. I lost my phone, my headphones, my neck pillow, my flight sat on the tarmac for three hours before a 13 hour flight, missed my connection, lost my luggage, arrived home to… Read more »

Tried commenting on another blog, wrote a long ass comment, when I press send, it deleted it, I actually had the courage to write it back 2 more times, got deleted before i could send again duh.. Then I hopelessly said fuck it mercury retrograde, fuck this comment.

It really has been something. I have had every one of my confirmed projects flake out on me, plus a stupidly long list of tech issues and govt admin dramas. I have had some contact from a couple of those awol clients wanting to apologise and try again to start up but I am sending ‘out of office’ replies to say i’ll get back to them on Friday. I’m not taking any chances…

Wow so many losing the voice during this! My Gemini daughter lost her voice completely for three weeks WHILE on her teaching experience placement at primary school. The whole six week thing had to be written off which was devastating for her. I, the Virgo, have had all the tires on my car need replacement, now the battery has died, the security system at home failed and had to be replaced, then the washing machine died and is awaiting parts with laundry pile swelling by the day. Eagerly awaiting the direct.

there’s been a bunch of ridiculousness – i got a transit ticket when i had a valid pass, somebody opened a snapchat account with my email, AC died, small online purchases have been wrong, tech wonky – but it’s all little, petty stuff. in the moment (because how else can you do a retro in your 12th house ending on natal merc but be all in the Now?), everything is shiny and optimistic and that’s all there is to it! 🙂

Good Lord….this is the worst Merc RX in memory. In addition to losing most of my clients and the remaining ones being difficult, my phone not working right, people hitting me up with work opps and then going awol for days….even my period is LATE, like by a week yet with all PMS symptoms raging (and no, I’m not preggo, took a test today to make sure)….but ADDED onto all that, I’m just in the biggest funk. It’s been a bit up and down….some days have been really dark, then I start feeling a bit better, then I’m down again….really,… Read more »

I completely relate. Hormones and losing clients and stress on top of anxiety do not help. Really hope it all starts making sense soon. Stay strong, stay sane, hang in there.

This is a heady cocktail being served up now. Best buzz I’ve ever had, feels like it could last for quite a while and not result in a hangover. Doesn’t cause dependence issues. Doesn’t require any thing added, no chaser, tastes great and doesn’t make me feel like I’ve been dosed with soma to keep me a beta.

Bar keep gods of the solar system, I think I’ll have another. I quite like the vibe of this establishment.

Saoirse KirkeMM Member

I honestly hope I live longer than I expected to because The existential looks like it would be the best time I could ever have in this lifetime. But even if I didn’t, just tasting this nectar has restored love to the whole ecosystem in my basement of operations. So grateful. Never been happier.

Not sure what just happened but after being in a terrible, awful mood all evening (won’t bother explaining, it’s pathetic), I just did an instant assessment of what I want in the next 12 months, from later this year. One of those “what I most want to happen is…” moments of clarity. What I most want to do when this current whirlwind is over is to read a lot. Have a lot of fuqing great sex. Maybe some surfing, and running – outdoorsy things. Everything else can fuq off. I have some catching up to do, with myself. 😀

oh. and also. I am living, LIVING on my Pluto-IC line . This is the location of my childhood and adolescence, and then when I get outta town to go to university,where do I go? a place ALSO ON THE LINE. omfg. And I am here again. This is such a beautiful city but I cannot deal. No wonder I have been so caught up with heavy family crap..I have not been able to separate the heavy from the family, ever. Maybe this is why I find the idea of family ‘closeness’ so cloying and repellent but it’s still this… Read more »

My Mercury retrograde has involved having to re-explain things a lot. I was resistant at first, then I realised that clarity doesn’t come on the first try. Nothing like a bit of retrograde wisdom.

Mm

Mystic! As someone who has experienced a fair bit of voice loss, here’s some hot tips for you…
* don’t whisper, it’s worse for your voice than talking (whispering is called a harsh glottal attack)
* stay out of smokey environments
* steam your voice – breathing shallowly through your mouth in a hot shower or over a bowl of boiled water with towel over your head
* don’t speak! Write instead… The more you rest your voice, the sooner your voice will come back
Hope you’re feeling better soon!

MM’s voice is fine. Its Abigail Stone who’s lost her voice.

Chloe with a K so they are all KK’s. Like the Klu Klux Klan but more photogenic and female.

Chloe with a K?
That’s funny because its so disconcerting and I have no idea if its true or you’re kidding or why we should care.
Perhaps the Kardashians are like this virulent strain of media fungus and once you’ve been exposed to it through Instagram or reality TV you automatically have the disease so you don’t know you’re are sick?
I mean how many are there?
KKKKaitlyn, Khloe, Kim, Kanye?

I actually don’t want to know.
I just wish I could go back to not knowing they existed. I need to read some Leonard Shlain.
WHICH BTW I LOVE (<3)

not God as in YWHW, “A god.” A worthy sentiment, I think. May we all be the agents of our own apotheoses!!

Yes, I agree that we should all acknowledge the Divinity within us, it is power and hope and connection.
It’s just that when Kanye is acknowledges it, I am not sure he understands the difference between his Ego and his inner God, so it’s like, uncomfortable…

I don’t mind the Merc retro so much. I just wish we were in waxing moon for a few months. I always feel better when the moon is on the up and up.

I have to have a lot of “conversations” soon (not bad, just boundary sorting and clarification of things biz and pleasure) with a few people but given the epic astro next week on the calendar I am thinking when is best?

Noticed a lot of angry muggles this mercury retro, angry at the idea of mercury retro and astrology in general. The funny thing is, people who get super mad at the concept of astrology make me want to do their chart so badly ha!

The squealing sound is not your brakes, BTW – it’s either the A/C compressor being noisy (common as cars get older) OR your A/C belt is just loose and slipping.

Ok, skype seems to be working on my phone.
Ha!
MM confirmed contact request.
I guess if I didn’t change skype addresses, email addresses and generally reinvent myself and switch identities every 36 hours these complications wouldn’t happen in the first place. But I’m mutable fire- ok and some scorched earth, with a chart full of squares.
Honestly I think the Mercury Retro is trying to tell me to slow down and get grounded. I’m doing my best MR.

I think its bronchitis.
I’ve been hoping this cough would go away on its own but DUH?

Yeah, enough with Mercury Retrograde already.

I lost my voice from May 4th for a MONTH. I couldn’t perform with my troupe. I usually have a great Mercury Retro. Well, I DID win those two rounds of tickets (can’t believe I missed Grace…Graaaaaaaaaaaaace!) but this one has been a kicker. Too much Gemini energy isn’t good for me, it gets me in my head and psychotic. Sunday evening, click – I changed. Now that the moon is in Pisces (as mine is) I am feeling more like ‘myself’ where I was feeling really suppressed for awhile there. Anyway, despite knowing I cannot date a Gemini ever… Read more »

Depends on what genre. Air signs have lots of intelligent and far reaching singer songwriters (Dylan. Lennon. Browne. Springsteen. Morrisette. Mellencamp…). Singers with Artifice – Leos Jagger / Madonna and their ilk. Directors also bcos they love the sound of their own voice (l plead guilty bcos l got Merc in Leo). Actresses that are Venus ruled are pop for their beauty. Fixed signs seem to provide alot of actors (l have lust in Aqua and there seems to be a lot actresses l crush on with Aqua) Painters/Drawers/Snappers are the preserve of Kataka. Singers who exhibit deep n emotional… Read more »

I heart Aquarian and Aries something heavy in the arts. The former are trailblazers and the latter have audacity and one-in-a-million skills (Marvin Gaye, Chaka Khan, Billie Holiday, Aretha Frankin, Marlon Brando). They ROCK me hard and slow…

I also noticed some articles might be missing, altho could on on purpose deletion. I tried to find articles about the Temperance tarot card and it came up with only 3 things and i swear there was more discussion. One of thr links on the 3 just go to a dead end.

Oh hahahaa I just re-read that link, that era was a party (ok not really not for me ) compared to this latest.

Someone somewhere put it well, this is when the sludge rises to the surface to be skimmed off, when the splinter/stinger comes out of the wound. It’s the messiest and ugliest but that’s more or less the last of it. (Sort of maybe I hope please)
