“Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky


Retrograde Mercury trine Mars, Moon in Virgo

We’re more confident in rallying behind our ideas today, or wanting to say what’s on our mind. Also, a positive time for buckling down and tackling projects that require attention to detail, including those that involve perfecting a skill or craft. May also want to put editing on that list.

Too, Mercury-Mars is a plus for public speaking, although it appears that the majority of us will probably be choosing to pass on that particular option, if statistics are correct. It’s estimated that approximately 75% of us suffer from ‘glossophobia,’ a technical term given for the severe fear of public speaking.  In fact, public speaking is deemed to be the greatest fear a person can have, even surpassing the fear of death! Why is that, I wonder? Could it be because most of us fear humiliation? Or, is it because we lack faith in our ideas? What do you think? Are you with the majority here?
