It was the thing. Isn’t it usually?
The thing which will go sideways between Humans. Pick a relationship — Parents and offspring. Siblings. Mates. Friends. Co-workers. Managers and those they attempt to manage. Rival Gangs.
It’s the thing.
Mercury is in Retrograde. Again. That damn planet LOVES to dance around backward…think Micheal Jackson dancing through the cosmos. Now there’s a visual which makes me smile.
But I digress. Getting back to communication. It doesn’t matter what your feelings are about the people in the equation — if you can’t understand each other — you’re fucked.
So many times that is what it comes to. We say what we mean, or someone will tell us what they mean. However — what goes into the ears and is translated in the receiving brain is not at all the original message. Sometimes it might even take a while before the parties involved discover they aren’t on the same page. Or the same chapter. Or reading from the same book. Maybe not even in the same library. Much to the astonishment of all the minds/hearts/souls involved.
Sometimes you can get around it. Get a translator — find a way to manage it — The Communication Dance. Other times it just won’t work. Battle lines form. Knives are drawn. You will be forever speaking different languages — even without Mercury’s bad influence.
Some days are worse than others, for sure. But we all know — we all have had relationships hinge on this skill or the lack of it.
Today — in Your Now — May you find some balance in this retrograde cycle. May you dance through Your Life with Joy in Your Heart and Michael Jackson playing in the background. May you find Peace not a Battle. Because as the song goes — in the end — It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right…
