I'm Alive. I Think.

Is this the land of the living? Pluto still has me by the foot and keeps dragging me under.

I've had a blinding headache for about three weeks now (the entire Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn). The computer makes it worse, so I have to steer clear for the most part. :-( The tendons are very slow to recover, and I am also still having vision problems.

My Mum did some research online for me (thanks Mum!) and it's common for recovery from Cipro to take in the months. Yuck. It's painful and slow. Painfully slow. Fucking Bayer. Fucking irresponsible, money-grubbing Big Pharma. Fucking brainless, irresponsible doctors who don't know what the hell they're even prescribing people.

I'm hoping for relief after Mercury (finally!) clears Capricorn Feb. 10. Until then, I think it's going to remain a battle. But at least Mercury is now direct and heading AWAY from Pluto at 5 degrees, however slowly. And yes, it's slowly.

I'm seeing a naturopath friend of the family on the 20th and hoping that will help.

And the good people of Haiti also definitely need our prayers and support right now...

Jesus. This eclipse season has been a wreck.

Thanks for the good wishes.

Strangely enough, I was once prescribed Cipro like 3 or 4 times in about as many months. The year was 2002 or 2003. I don't remember having a problem. The problem I had was a sort of infestation of infections in select regions of my body. The Cipro killed everything. Your body must be fighting to keep the balance. Think Ayurvedic medicine, that would be my counsel, but I'm an idiot-savant, not a medical practitioner.

In conclusion, you have helped the opening of my mind to a vaster reality, to a much more comprehensive conception of our universe. So many truths, lessons, processes, I failed to trust, intuitions too. I wish they'd give me Pluto for two seconds so I could wring his ears for making it hurt for you Willow.

Could it just be that all those insecurities & fears that we still pretend don't exist, are being stripped of their foundation in falseness? I know the blaring, painful truth. The time off will most certainly do you good. Sooner than you think, you may be back on track, with your strength and wisdom increased a thousandfold.

You are in my prayers Willow.

This winter has been complete shitshow for many people, and your astrology articles are a wonderful help in getting through.

I know that you will feel strong and healthy again soon and back doing what you love!

Peace and healing to you.
