Yup, mercurial Mercury has had his way with my week already with 2 missed meetings in one day. So we are following through on my previous threat to go hide away on a deserted island in a deep blue river far, far away.
"As a rule, retrograde planets presage a period of seemingly inevitable or fated events…"**
And certainly this trip seems to have been fated. Last minute changes at work permitted Ger to take the time. Then when asking if we could give our friend Japor a ride down with us, he suggested we all go in his car. Bigger, cheaper and, okay, a little older and riskier. But hey if we went in a shiny, new rental car, that would just be tempting fate wouldn’t it.
Better to leave a little room for Mercury’s need to snarl things up a bit. Besides it makes for better stories. Right?
So off we go to visit dad, swim in the river, and tell some lies. We can’t wait.
