Sorting ourselves out


Have we been in a Retrograde?

Oh us Furlong’s have had such a turbulent time this last week. We might be coming through to sorting ourselves out. But, through all our troubles, people have been super-efficient and helpful, there have been no delays, confusion, or misunderstanding. Just a time of people-helping-us-in-time-of-difficulty.

No Retrograde.

But the Vet’s bill was £375, the phones £112, the TV Humax box and cabling £200+, the reading glasses bill £200, and that is not counting several other minor expenses under £100.

Which shows for many misfortunes, you need  more money than you thought to get yourself out of the mess you find yourself in.

Just saying.


The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts, automobiles, and such. So,when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.



In 2016, Mercury will be retrograde during:

  • January 5 to 25
  • April 28 to May 22
  • August 30 to September 22
  • December 19 to 31

So the Retrograde is still coming!

In December.

Just in time for Christmas.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

    Mercury retrograde over Xmas – expect your cards and presents either delayed or lost in the post then! Actually, that’s a good excuse…! “Whaddya mean you didn’t get a card from me? It must’ve been Mercury Retrograde!” 😀
