Shut Up

No no no, I don’t mean you, of course.  Shut up is what the cosmos is saying to me today, in a slightly less rude way, but still, the messages are clear.  My astrological forecasts, horoscope and tarot readings appear to have ganged up on me.  It’s like they all got together at a meeting and came up with these words for me to live by.  Or they just thought it would be a funny thing to do on a Monday.  I’m not pretending to understand how it happened.

1.  Don’t offer any opinions.

2.  Where a need to refrain from speaking your mind exists, hold that thought.

3.  Avoid shenanigans.

4. Try to stay calm, quiet and balanced.

5.  Stop overreacting.  Let it wash over you.

6.  Avoid confrontation. Get away by yourself.

7.  Take the phone off the hook.

8.  Don’t believe anything you hear until you can withdraw to think it over.

9.  You might not come up with all the right answers today.

10. Your viewpoint will not be welcomed by others.

What in the world are the odds of just about every one of these suggestion and advice givers (I read four on facebook and three on my phone) telling me to keep my mouth shut today?  Well nobody said I couldn’t write a blog post….although after all these warnings I’m kind of afraid to jot down any kind of hypothesis or idea and risk pissing off the universe.

So whatever you got out of this, I SINCERELY DID NOT MEAN IT.

There.  I hope that appeases the stars and the heavens and intergalactic space.  Tomorrow will be a better day once I get back to being my normal assertive bullheaded self.  I know, I can’t wait either.
