There is going to be a blue moon on NYE this year (for most of the world), a lunar eclipse, and mercury is in retrograde. Wow…what could that mean? In the random magic world it could mean a lot, or maybe nothing. You know it is all astronomical, my dear Watson. Ok, my cheapness is showing. But I make no apologies and have no regrets.
For those of you unfamiliar with Mercury Retrograde phases– there are a number of sites that talk about what it all “means”…Here is one and two…(to name a few). I just find it amusing that what is supposed to go all flooey right now is communication and electronics…which is poetic because Mercury’s (Hermes) attribution as a god of Rome/Greece is all about communications since he was a messenger god. But in my experience, the three times a year Mercury appears to be moving backward have definitely been times of trying communication. Was this because of the retrograde or because people expect to have communication problems? Well, I am not sure, but I don’t think people’s minds can effect whether or not the cable, car, or computer is acting funky. And if we can, then we are all a hell of a lot more psychic than we think.
Happy New Year to everyone! May 2010 be magical and random and everything you want it to be!
