“The best cure for hypochondria is to forget about your own body and get interested in someone else’s.” Goodman Ace

Madame Patrice’s “Cosmic Word of The Day”: Hypochondria


1) n. an abnormal condition characterized by a depressed emotional state and imaginary ill health

Madame Patrice reveals her endless wisdom in selecting hypochondria as the “Cosmic Word of the Day”:

June 18th is an exceptionally rich and historic time for all layers of hypochondria to manifest as the Moon gets ready to bed “Chronic Complainer” Saturn in the health sign of “Why am I still a Virgin?” Virgo.

The conversant Gemini Sun is also throwing a tight square to both the Moon and Saturn, further amplifying the need to articulate all manner of pain and discomfort in detailed fashion.

Additionally, a watery Sun-Neptune trine will likely cause bouts of imaginary seasickness, as well as create a run on Neptunian fluids such as beer and vodka. Which means, come Saturday morning, much of the collective may be experiencing all too real hangovers.”

More contagious”hypochondria” quotes:

“Imaginary pains are by far the most real we suffer, since we feel a constant need for them and invent them because there is no way of doing without them.” E.M. Cioran

“I’m a hypochondriac.  Yesterday it was brain damage from the vodka the night before.  Today, heart attack – my arm and chest started hurting at the same time.” Lisa Marie Presley

“The trouble with being a hypochondriac these days is that antibiotics have cured all the good diseases.”  Caskie Stinnett

June 18th Gemini birthdays: Kurt Browning, William Randolph Hearst III, Paul McCartney

Enjoy your Friday!

I feel your pain.
