Mercury retrograde in my world

When Mercury is retrograde, I spend much of my time assuring clients that not everything will fall apart during these periods.  If problems do occur, though, it sure does make it easier to know that Mercury is retrograde and that these things are to be expected.

Mercury has only been retrograde for a few days, but already I’ve had the following problems:

  • A security breach on my credit card necessitated the cancellation of that card and issuance of a new one and the resulting need to change all of the various website that use the card.
  • My Quicken program told me that I needed to upgrade by April 30th or lose some of the functionality.  I already had the software but hadn’t installed it – when I went to install it I found that the problem downloading automatic windows updates that I had been ignoring since November would not permit the Quicken installation.  After 90 minutes on the help line they told me the only way to fix it was to reinstall the operating system.
  • The 30-minute job of setting up my new wireless printer took two hours and a hefty $255 bill because of hidden problems in my office network.
  • When I went to change the rental car reservation for our big trip coming up they told me OOPS!  It’s a good thing you called because you can’t pick up your car the day of your reservation, it’s a bank holiday.  So in that case Mercury Rx worked in my favor.  If I hadn’t had to change the trip, I wouldn’t have called to change the reservation and wouldn’t have found out until we couldn’t pick up the car!

This Mercury Retrograde period started out to be particularly difficult because it was in a challenging square formation to Mars for a few days.  The intensity should let up soon.

How is the retrograde treating you?

    Unemployment spent a few weeks screwing up my payments, nearly leading to eviction. They also changed the payment date and by the time the money came in most of the automatic debits from my account for frivolities like the phone, insurance and internet had been rejected.

    AND I lost my coin purse with the angel medallion and the $130 bracelet I can’t afford to replace. The clasp was broke and it wouldn’t open so I couldn’t take it off.

    And the brakes went on the bike a friend gave me so I can’t ride it till I figure out how to do the brakes. I got a call finally from a corporate recruiter about a job. He was impressed and said he was going to move my application ‘up the chain’ but it’s been a week and I haven’t heard a thing in spite of a phone call and email to him.

    A car that was a gift from a friend blew up on the third trip out and money I’ve been expecting keeps getting help because of miscommunications and new banking laws still being integrated into the system…eating beans and rice this week 🙂

    Let’s see.. Made it to New York City, thankful for creeping traffic on the Queens Expressway (someone else’s Merc retro nightmare!) since it enabled me to admire the Manhattan skyline and continue checking my Google maps.

    But that night, the bus that dropped our tour group in the Village was waiting for us at the wrong place when it was time to leave, and *I* got to go find it (because I was the one who figured out where it probably was).. The occult shop eight of us decided to go visit was closed (“seized” unfortunately); the cab driver driving us there took us 8 blocks out of the way to rip us off; because of that, we lost our friends who were in the other, non-ripoff cab. Then, everyone’s GPS showed that the other store of interest was about 8 blocks closer than it actually was.

    On the trip home, in the pouring rain and fog, got turned around somehow on the Jersey Turnpike and almost got sucked into the Lincoln Tunnel, when I was supposed to be coming south to NC.

    Mercury took pity on me, though, when I managed to dodge a furiously-spinning truck hubcap with 3-inch spikey metal things sticking up, while I was on a barely 2-lane, walled-in bridge to Staten Island, everyone going 90 mph.

    I am ready for this one to calm down and fade quietly away!

    My lawyer didn’t show up for my bankruptcy hearing this week due to a problem with her scheduling. The case has been continued until May. A gift I ordered over the Internet has been lost and the company is trying to find out what happened. No word yet on whether they will be reshipping the item or if they have found the first one shipped.
