A complete guide to why everything sucks right now

It's all right here.

Mercury Retrograde

At 20:32 UT (Universal Time), on Monday, January 28th, 2008, Mercury the cosmic trickster, turns retrograde in Aquarius, the sign of the Water-Bearer, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup.

....Everything finally straightens out on March 10, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde.

In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce, education and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, teachers, travellers, tricksters and thieves.

Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry.

All areas of communication are affected, especially in matters related to the family, business, particularly home business, travel, domestic relationships and real estate purchases in general. This period brings travel snafus and missed appointments of all kinds. Documents can go astray. Be sure to carry a diary and refer to it often.

well I seem to have jupiter looking at saturn in my current phase and Sun sort of over seeing everything in my life so when ketu moves into my ruling home(what's a ketu in english?) I'm going to be able to take risks and win big...instead of losing all my money to slot machines.

Hope that made sense.

The stomach is usually what triggers a migrane, usually.

Ketu in English is the moon's South Node, I Western astro system it's not used much, or is used mostly by some rogue hybrid astrologers. ;-)

Sorry I am so obtuse; migraines & Merc Retro make a bad communication combo. ;-)
