Dear President Obama,
I imagine you are having a fit with the Obamacare website going south. I hate to tell you but it might be until mid-November,- if then, before you see a substantial. change for the better. You might ask who I am to tell you this and what is this Mercury Retrograde thing?
Let's start with Mercury Retrograde, I bet you have never seen a planet move backwards. To tell you the truth, I haven't either, What happens is that Mercury slows down In contrast to the other planets which continue to move at the same speed. Mercury appears to be going backward. Close your eyes. Imagine suddenly a planet slows down as it revolves around the sun while the others remain at the same speed. It looks like it is going backward, It is an optical illusion. Retrograde refers to that optical illusion.
This little backward jig with Mercury happens three times a year, sometimes four. Mercury represents communications and all that is involved with communications, your I Pad, computer, and oh dear-your website (.I must say this flub up is a shocker having witness the exactitude of your usage of technology in this past campaign. That was amazing.) Well back to now.
Several weeks before Mercury goes Retrograde elements involving communications breakdown. Sometimes a misunderstanding evolves between you and another person. Frequently electronic equipment breaks down and occasionally nothing happens.
How it hits an individual depends on their chart and the placement of Mercury in their chart. You-I am so sorry to say ,are particularly vulnerable with a Moon in Gemini.
I forgot this is Greek to you. Moon is your emotional nature, your mom and the significant women in your life. The Moon rules the US chart too-just as an incidental. Gemini is a sign that is ruled by Mercury, thus in periods when Mercury goes retro, matters involving communications and your passions - for instance, Michele and/or the girls could become touchy.I would like to stress not everything happens all at once. Maybe just one aspect might need an adjustment.
Well we know what happened this time.
That poor website, This particular Mercury Retrograde-its impact started as all of them before the day of the retrograde. The early impact started on October 1. Mercury went retrograde this past Monday . Mercury goes direct, a champagne celebration for many people -on November 11,.and the after effect will clear by November 21. I am sorry it is going to take that long.
Do you have the date the design of the website started? Didn't the government shut-down start October 1 too.? That story is far from over My President.
Astrologers like me give advice about how to handle Mercury Retrogrades. Make no commitments, do not sign any papers, a break-up during this period will not last, etc.
When something goes haywire during a Mercury Retrograde it is best to consider how you could have prevented what unfolded. Usually the correction made during the actual Mercury Retrograde have to be redone. We can hope that the designing of the site began on a past Mercury Retrograde and this would be the correction period.
I do not know if this will help you or if it helps anyone to give advice. Just remember: this too will pass.
