Hi! I was wondering if anyone could answer this question. It requires a little background: I know next to nothing about astrology. Well, I probably know more than the general population, but not enough to speak with any intelligence about it. But the acupuncturist I intern with always knows when Mercury is in retrograde, etc.
My major shift in my diet came the day after Easter. I figured that I was feeling sickened by all the processed and high fat/sugar foods I always loved because I had overdone it the day before. But when it didn't go away, and the only things I could eat for the next 2 weeks without feeling nauseous were fruits, veggies, and other whole foods, I started worrying. I asked my acupuncturist. It turned out that Pluto had gone into retrograde about that time.
Apparently Pluto in retrograde is often a very difficult time for people, but I sailed through as though I was being carried along, and lost about 20 pounds during that time (and the nausea did go away, so don't worry).
I'm not sure what is happening astrologically right now (7/8/10), but apparently the past week has been particularly difficult for a number of people around me. But in the past week, I rediscovered my motivation and am going for my goals harder and am feeling genuine joy doing it.
My question (wow, there was actually a point to that novel?) is why times that are particularly difficult for others seem to be high motivators for change in me. Also, does anyone know what's going on right now? I've heard several people asking if Mercury is in retrograde right now (it isn't, right?)
If you made it to the end of this post, kudos for your persistence! :)
