Mercury Madness and May Mojo
I must admit, I’m pretty excited about the arrival of May and the return of Mercury into its proper orbit. You see, the planet will be in retrograde until May 11 and I have been secretly blaming job search communication breakdowns on this fact. Take today, for example. It took me 4 grand tries to successfully submit a very long application for a recruiting agency. And yesterday, my husband and I took a test with the U.S. Census bureau for potential temporary work, and his test just mysteriously disappeared at the end. The administrator couldn’t find it anywhere and had to assume that someone must have swiped it (hopefully by accident.) It has been a job communications slowdown, my friends, and I am here to tell you that we’re not to blame!
Weeks like this past one remind me of times in my life when I’ve just kept trying to move forward in the same direction no matter what the situation. Sometimes we get blocked for a reason, I believe. Maybe we’re going in a wrong direction, or new opportunities are waiting on the outskirts of our previous expectations. Maybe we just need to slow down for a while, or learn to be patient, or find new ways to dismantle the walls in our life and build ourselves new.
So, May 1st begins tomorrow and I am giving this shout out into the universe: Here I come, job! I’m tearing down those employment walls, sending good communication vibes into the cosmos and planning for success very soon now. You just try to stop me this time;)
