Saturday Musings-Retrograde Style

I’m only on my third cup of coffee … forgive me if I ramble a bit.

Today starts the first of three Mercury retrogrades this year. I’m a Virgo and Mercury is my ruling planet so the retrogrades affect me more than, perhaps, other people. I have to be doubly cautious about what comes out of my mouth (or off my fingers) so I don’t get into any more trouble than usual. As an accountant, this retrograde comes at a really sucky time – financial affairs are also affected by a Merc retrograde and it’s effing tax season. I’ll have to triple- and quadruple-check clients’ numbers.

I’m a bachelorette this weekend as hubby has left for his annual fishing show thingie. I relish this 36 hours (or so) alone and generally spend it doing things like an in-depth cleaning of the house. That’s much easier to accomplish without him under foot. This weekend? I don’t think so.

Instead, I think I’m going to go play in the shop. Things have been the shits around here lately, and I’ve ignored the herbs far too long. (First, I have to clean the shop. We share space and hubby doesn’t keep it up very well. I guess there will be some cleaning involved.) Even though my communication skills may be somewhat limited by that damned planet, I’m feeling a need to reconnect with them. The garden is still dormant (and soggy) so I’ll have to work with dried. A little more difficult but doable. Usually.

What will I do/make? Don’t know, yet. There’s nothing I have to make so I’ll let the herbs guide me. But I can guarantee one thing: it’ll smell wonderful. So, I’ll be offline most of this weekend, visiting with other friends.

Catch y’all next week!
