I don’t know what’s been up with me for the past few days, but I’ve been so bored and uninspired.
This is my favorite time of year. I like the cool weather. I like the way my garden begins to fall apart. I like the fashion shows and the premieres of many of my beloved TV programs. However, since I got back from my vacation, I just don’t feel excited about anything.
I’m going to need to take a good look at my chart to figure out what’s going on. The little dance between the sun, Mercury and Venus can play a big role in how I feel at any particular time. Maybe there’s something going on with Mercury’s retrograde phase occurring in my twelfth house that is making me feel bleary (for lack of a better word). Just a few minutes ago, it moved back into Virgo where it will remain for another two-and-a-half weeks. Maybe I’ll feel a little different now that it’s separating from its conjunction with the sun in lazy Libra. That conjunction sort of marked the peak of this period of boredom.
I hope that I start getting energized again. I’ve barely been able to make it through an entire slideshow on vogue.com without just saying “been there, done that” before moving onto something else.
On the bright side, my physical energy seems to be picking up. I’m sleeping like a baby now that the weather is cooling down and the nights are getting longer. Perhaps I can take that as a sign that not all is “bad” in my world. To be honest, nothing is bad in my world right now. I’m just feeling as if I can’t fake normal human emotions.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to shake this feeling off when Mercury backtracks into my eleventh house on Monday. Until then, I’m just going to have to force myself to appear to be interested in what’s going on around me so that people don’t start to think that I’m a zombie or a model on the Prada runway.
Wish me luck!
