“L’absinthe” by Edgar Degas (source: The Art Wolf)

Mercury opposes Neptune in my chart this afternoon. For the last couple of days, I’ve felt like getting drunk. Now I know the reason.

I’m not a big drinker because I can’t really hold my liquor. Three drinks in and I’m finished. I don’t drink any more than that because I don’t need to, and I don’t have three drinks very often. However, I do enjoy the feeling of getting a little tipsy every now and then. Yesterday I saw a commercial for some radler beer and it’s all I’ve been able to think about since.

I suppose that Mercury opposing Neptune creates the urge to put on some beer goggles. I’m not stressed out and I’m actually feeling good about a lot of things in my life right now. Still, the I can’t escape the feeling that I need to escape for an afternoon. I don’t have any sorrows to drown, and yet I just want to feel blurry for a while.

I’m going to give into my urges and pick up some beer on the way to work this afternoon. Maybe I’ll drink it while I’m there. We do have a fridge in the stockroom. Hmm . . .
