My wireless router has been behaving abominably. I ordered a new one last week and it just came in today’s mail. I haven’t been able to get online for more than five consecutive minutes without restarting the router and even then it’s been slow. There’s a brand new shiny router in the house now, not hooked up, and what do you think is happening? The old router is operating at peak levels unseen in months. Its like it KNOWS its replacement is on deck and it’s performing its little heart out.
Clearly I have no idea why this would be, but what is interesting to me is my own tendency to ascribe to it human motivations and emotions, even an ego. I have Pisces (universal) sun (life, ego) conjunct Mercury (communications devices) in the 7th house (projection) aspecting the moon (feelings) and Uranus (technology). I tend to do this with things in general anyway. When I was a kid I didn’t want to throw anything away in an empty trash can as it might be lonely. I’d wait till I had two things so they had company. I hope you’re not as crazy as I am.
Do you anthropomorphize non-human entities? Can you pinpoint the astrology? I ask because my cat is curious.
