Even my Daily horoscope advises to say and do things today with 'utmost care'. Something about Mercury blurring the boundaries in my immediate environment. Another warning....'Don't go out on a ledge'. Yikes...and here I am feeling off balance.
Definitely not going near a ledge today!
Mercury!!! That quick silver element first found in Egyptian tombs dating back to 1500 BC. Once thought to prolong life, heal fractures, and maintain good health, it is now known to lead to seriously adverse and lifelong health issues when exposed to through vapors and ingestion.
Although Mercury and it's compounds have been used in medicine, it less common today now that it's toxic effects are better understood. Thankfully, I've only had two tiny amalgam fillings, one has been replaced and the other has held up for over 50 years...maybe it's to blame for my 'Off Kilterness' today. I know...it's probably all in my head!
Two spacecraft have visited Mercury...Mariner 10 flew by in the 1970's and Messenger, launched in 2004, orbited Mercury over 4,000 times in four years before exhausting its fuel and crashing into the planet's surface on April 30, 2015.
There ya go!
That's what we get for Messing with Mercury!
According to my 'Monthly' horoscope, things are going to improve when the Full Moon is in full bloom....beginning tomorrow...January 23rd. Yep, I'll be 'Feelin' the Love, as the bond with HiHoney deepens. That, I think is a given with the Celebration of our 50th Anniversary. I'd say we are in pretty deep!
Once the Full Moon starts on it's waning path, so goes the rest of my month of being 'Off Kilter'. More daily predictions of handling everything with 'utmost care'...especially with my mouth...which I take to translate to speaking and writing.
I'm soooo ready for February!
