I am not used to blogging. It seems like a way to pour the contents of your unregulated mind onto the blank page. No wonder the world is so confused … an abundance of stream of consciousness may be difficult to digest. Forgive me for starting with a doubt.
The subjects dominating everyone’s mind at the moment is THE ECONOMY and of course THE ELECTIONS. Worthy subjects. It will be interesting if they come up with a bail-out package and implement it while Mercury is retrograde. Given that they probably haven’t been ‘aligned’ this could mean that there will be some loopholes, some deception but all in all it is interesting that Mercury is Retrograde in Libra – the sign of negotiation, contracts, debate and the rules of engagement – and there is so much of that going on.
If you want an entertaining albeit insightful look at Mercury (Hermes) and his fellow Olympians I recommend a book called, Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips. She’s done a good job of giving the gods (some of whom are also the planets) personalities.
