When Mercury transits your chart, don’t expect it to be a typical month at all.
July was filled with day trips for me as Mercury the planet of transportation backtracked through my first house and into my 12th house. I was busy making and keeping several appointments with my doctors. I spent a great deal of time having my records transferred to my new doctor, getting exams and having them faxed to another hospital, having blood work and getting that faxed to the hospital where I will have a procedure on my foot.
Between my husband and myself, we spent too much time trying to work with the insurance company and following procedure so that they would pay for my foot surgery. At one point I had to ask if he was getting names because every time he got on the phone he got a different answer from the person on the other end.
The results of all of our hard work during this last retrograde was that neither insurance will cover the procedure. That call came in while I was having my pre-op exam! When I told my family Doctor, he told me he could let me go and not charge for the appointment. I advised him to finish the exam as I really wasn’t certain what would happen now.
Well, 30 minutes later my husband called and said he had gotten a nice bonus check and a letter from his company commending him for his work. He also told me that the company that provides the hospital the equipment was going to wave their fee and my podiatrist had reduced her charges by less than half because she really wants me to have it done.
So, tomorrow I hope that this new procedure helps get my foot on a road to recovery. It may take up to 3 months for me to start to see real results, but that shouldn’t be a problem as I have been limping around with pain for 18 months already. BTW, looking back at my blog entry, I forecasted the right day that I would have it done…although there were a few times I wondered if something would happen to change that date.
I read the July horoscopes that I wrote for my sun sign to my husband and the details I gave for Mars in Virgo fit my life exactly. I also read him parts of my rising sign horoscope to him and the New Moon was right on as well. His response was, “No fair, you cheat, you write those things”. lol
Well, I wrote his too…lol. I’m not a psychic and I didn’t know I was going through all of this and buy a car for my daughter within a week of the new moon. When life gets too predictable for me as an Astrologer, the Universe throws me a monkey wrench…or two!
