Just a couple of weeks ago, we were complaining that we really needed snow. When will we learn to be careful what we wish for? We certainly got snow. Many of us here in the Sierras will be staying home and staying by the fire for several more days. Did I say we got snow? Trees are down, power lines are down, some are without power and hopefully everyone has enough propane and firewood.
However, we have a lot to be thankful for with this snow. Our mountain snowpack is recovering somewhat from a really dry year. If we are safe and warm in a comfortable home, what more could we ask for. There are so many who do not have that privilege.
Here we are on the cusp of another Mercury Retrograde. If you're not familiar with what that means, it comes 3 or 4 times a year and lasts for about a month. Mercury is the planet that rules communication. When Mercury is in retrograde, it's a good time to RElax, REassess, REadust, REflect, REjuvenate and REmind ourselves that it doesn't all have to be done all at once. In fact, in this "snowed in" situation, it's a good time for Mercury's retrograde. We have no choice but the REwind a little bit. So REmember.... all the things that begin with RE during the retrograde. Oh, and be REally careful about technology right now. Mercury likes to mess with technology. Backup your files!
Snuggle in, heavy socks, warm sweaters, a good book, a hot cup of tea.... I love the SNOW!
