Here we are the end of 2010. I know I have been spotty at best lately, forgive me. When I began this endeavor in March I had no idea how this little “hobby” would weave its way into my life and overtake… OK lets be honest more like consume me. Add an IRS audit, a mild case of ADD with a dash of forced fed humility and that pretty much sums up my 2010.
So now what.
That is a good question.
Today marks the end of Mercury Retrograde which was a great time to do less and plan more and another reason to be MIA. I don’t write during a retrograde or try to climb Mt. Everest during these 3 week periods, it’s pointless. Did you notice during this last retrograde (10th-12/30) any of the tell tale signs we are in Mercury Retrograde? Communication break down, electronics not working, schedules falling apart, technological mishaps? I had a couple ‘classic instances. I shared one here where I had an unexplained mechanical failure right in the middle of my little Duran Duran “moment”. I kept a good sense of humor about it and was so thankful to catch my shout out from Mr. LeBon. Second point in case, Christmas Eve a colleague sent me a response to a direct message I sent her, asking me to do one thing… RE-READ what I sent. I almost died. In my haste when I wrote about my “Brother in law rupturing his disc” I had a typo.
Yep I used the letter k you see.
Thank God for her sense of humor.
One of my “me to me” gifts this year was a book on Mercury Retrograde by Chrissy Blaze.
It was such a GREAT book, it really covers a wide range from the history (all the way back to Greek Mythology) about the origins Mercury Retrograde to its current effect and better how to make the MOST of these periods which happen ever 3-4 months for 3 weeks at a time. There are tables to see future periods as well as specifically what sign these retrograde periods fall in so you can fine tune the areas of focus in your life to best enhance use of that time. The author also spends equal parts explaining the general background of the signs, how to read your birth chart and what the planets in general mean. A great brush up for me as I have always been drawn to Astrology and let its influences flow in and out through the years. I can see this taking a more active role in 2011. I have so many stories to share about my chance encounters with fate, serendipity, fortunes and alike. Good times I promise. I might even spend a good chunk rewinding my mixed tape life and sharing some bright spots as I approach my 43rd year on this planet. I might even finish up the Reverb10 project (maybe).
Who knows… it’s all up in the air (literally) I hope you’ll stay along for the ride.
PS. as some of you know (who follow me on twitter or facebook) THE “audit” officially ended on 12/9 one day before we entered retrograde, whew! and YES I am so happy to have that all behind me, I think Santa heard my Christmas wish.
Another reason to look forward to the New Year.
That and more rainbows (<– BTW this viral video double rainbow dude has been viewed almost 23 MILLION times!) I’ll never gaze upon a rainbow the same way again Rainbow Dude.
