Mercury Slows Down

March 12th, 2012 § 0 comments

A 30 foot golden replica of Michelangelo’s David took a tour of New York City last week.

Serkan Ozkaya created the piece and thought it would be interesting to see it visit different neighbourhoods before eventually heading to its new home at a museum in Louisville, Kentucky.

To me it looked a like a statue of Mercury, tied down, and without his winged feet. That got me thinking of Mercury Retrograde and how this golden David was a perfect metaphor for the messenger planet slowed down.

And as it turns out, Mercury went retrograde just yesterday and will be so until April 3rd.

Though this planetary shift can bring with it miscommunications, computer kookiness, and transportation snafus, it’s not all bad.

It can also give you an opportunity to slow down and sort through tasks you’ve been putting off for a while, maybe even since the last time Mercury went retrograde late last year.

During this time, it’s recommended not to sign contracts, or buy electronics without getting a warranty. And you might want to give yourself a little extra time to get to appointments or other important commitments.

But don’t stress out if things don’t move along exactly as you expect them to. They might not go as planned, but they’ll most likely work out fine in the end.

We can take our cue from the golden David, if you have to take the long route, you might as well just relax and enjoy the ride.
