Something is clearly not right. Or maybe it’s just the Mercury Retrogade:
In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, teachers, travellers, tricksters and thieves.
Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray or awry.
It is therefore not wise to make important decisions while Mercury is retrograde, since it is very likely that these decisions will be clouded by misinformation, poor communication and careless thinking. Mercury is all about mental clarity and the power of the mind, so when Mercury is retrograde these intellectual characteristics tend to be less acute than usual, as the critical faculties are dimmed. Make sure you pay attention to the small print!
This is wonderful! I can now blame the stars and the planets for my frustrations and go to Madame Auring instead of screaming at Employee Relations. At least the Madame will spend my money on her latest nose job.
Everyone is pressuring me right now to the point where even chanting Goosefrabah can’t help. I feel like reminding them that:
1. I cannot be stressed. I’m medically allergic to stress and will refer all their calls to my Neurologist.
2. I have been working for free for three months now. I didn’t come here to be a volunteer, I came for a promotion. And don’t tell me it takes three months to correct an Oracle mistake. Stupid system. My pending contract is probably on someone’s desk and that someone has been sleeping and drooling on it for weeks.
