There is this part in recruitment situations when they ask those “tell me about your weak points where we all lie (except for me, of course) and say something like “I can be a little too tenacious” or, “I have a problem letting go of an issue”. We say the types of things that are really supposed to sound like strengths that we are spinning into semi weaknesses.
In actual fact, if we were being honest (which obviously everyone other than me is not) we would pick the shadow side of our sun, or the shadow side of our Saturn, even.
I’m not going through them all for the following reasons:
- I don’t want to offend anyone this early in the week and
- I plan to write about it as part of my semi serialised career semi series.
Mine would be, aside from the Piscean need to escape and an in-built abhorrence for detail, (please let there be no prospective employee reading this- if there is, I can do detail when the situation warrants…)I have a tendency to tune out when all I am hearing is blah blah flipping blah.
Whilst my Aries Venus loves a good dose of drama, I also quite simply do not do complications, and seriously, some people have this inbuilt need to complicate the uncomplicated. As my favourite tradie in Brissie has been heard to say “save me the labour pains and give me the flipping baby.” Actually, he didn’t say “flipping”, but you get the picture.
I don’t know about you, but since Mars has been in Virgo, there has been so much energy spent on detailing the flipping detail that I reckon I can see the sap dripping from the trees, but have absolutely no idea what the forest looks like or if there are any pretty birds in there.
Sure it could be that mercury retrograde has slowed even the most basic communication into something that needs extensive proceduralisation (and yes, I just made that word up), but enough already!
Interestingly, when Mercury goes retrograde, I often find that my impatience with the speed of messages gets worse. People take longer to get it. Maybe it is because my Mercury is natally the 2nd worst possible Mercury in history (retrograde in Pisces in the 12th) and it seems that everyone else slows down, whilst I stay the same. Does anyone else with a retrograde Mercury feel that at Mercury Rx times?
Anyways, the Moon is in Aquarius, so I am allowed to say this stuff and get away with it- Aquarius being free-thinking and all that. And the above mentioned Mercury is retrograde is in Sagittarius- the natural breeding ground of foot in mouth disease. So, I can blame all of the above.
The Moon is in Aquarius for all of tomorrow as well, with a little Piscean influence and dreaminess creeping in when La Luna has her monthly Woodstock like love fest with Neptune. Other than that all the really cool aspects don’t perfect for another couple of days. Will talk about these tomorrow…whatever.
For now I have a deconstructed Chicken Caesar Salad to prepare- complete with my BMFs super secret super special dressing recipe. I could tell you, but…
The pic today was taken last week in Perth. It is there to bring some calmness and coolness into the maelstrom that has been today…and is especially for my hubby- even though he doesn’t read this, but the thought counts.
