Mercury Retrograde ended Friday followed by 3 stationary days until it goes direct. What does that mean? More repetition and delays. Winter is returning.
Pisces is a water sign. The New Moon in Pisces is bringing snow to the greater part of the country. After forest fires and drought, now torrential rains torment Southern California CNN - March 1, 2014
This has been a long winter of record setting weather conditions and injuries - not for me personally but everywhere I look. Some have temporary effects, while other are long lasting requiring surgeries and eventually resulting in arthritis.
As the first snowfall begins each winter, I have the same visual of orthopedists and chiropractors telling their families, "Have a nice winter. I won't be home again until the spring," followed by the sound of a cash register ... ka-ching ... ka-ching ... ka-ching. Walk-in medical centers are also filled with people who fell on the snow and ice. How much will Obamacare cover?
Why do injuries occur? The answer always has a psychological base - generally saying the person is tired and needs time out.
How do injuries occur?
Weather. The severe weather has caused people to slip and slide mostly due to ice under the snowy layers - or black ice.
Sports. Accidents occurred at the 2014 Winter Olympics and for others around the world who enjoy winter sports.
Exercise. Exercise makes us feel good, but overdoing it - especially over the course of many years - can cause the breakdown of knees, hips, back, and more. Hip and knee replacements are becoming far more common among young people today. Look at it this way ... any part of your body that gets abused ... is going to break down and fail. If the affected area is the leg, or anything related to your mobility, it represents your inability to move forward in life.
Job. If you stand on your feet all day, it will definitely affect limbs and back.
Entertainment. Slipping and falling, especially in the world of entertainment, makes us laugh. I'm not sure why we are conditioned to find that funny, but we are. The Academy Awards take center stage this Sunday, March 2. I hope none of the ladies trip and fall in their high heels. Nominee Lupita Nyong'o celebrates her birthday on March 1, in the energies of the New Moon in Pisces.
