I wouldn’t say I’m one of those people who are really invested in astrology and believe in horoscopes, but it has always interested me. I’m a Gemini, which means I am good at multitasking, I enjoy being around people and am very creative. I identify with many of these traits but it’s not a perfect fit.
For those astrology nuts out there, this is a big week. Mercury has gone into retrograde. It happens about four times a year and it is supposed to mess up several things including transportation and critical thinking.
As I don’t strongly follow astrology, I thought I’d be invincible to retrograde Mercury. I’ve been having a great week, I must admit. On Tuesday, both my deadlines for two giant projects got extended. Wednesday I aced a test I thought I’d fail and today I found out my final was rescheduled meaning I get to go back East for winter break earlier than I thought. But today on my way to campus, the light rail broke down… and I was on it. It took a frustrating 30 minutes to get to campus when it usually only takes me 10. Retrograde Mercury, you finally got me. I hope this is as bad as it gets because I can’t really afford any more stress. I hope for the rest of you, retrograde Mercury is generous.
