Over the last several months I’ve had increasing trouble with my internet connection. I replaced a bad modem, talked with the provider tech person, messed with settings, all the stuff I can figure to do in my limited understanding of technology. It would get better and I’d think I had it, but then poop out again. It also seemed to coincide with Uranus (electronic communication systems) transiting my natal Chiron (chronic dysfunction).
Uranus is now moving forward at a steady rate. Today Mars is at zero degrees Aquarius (Uranus-ruled) moving into semi-sextile (30 degrees) with mercury (simple communications), also aspecting Uranus. Elsa got serious with me and said, “tell me EXACTLY what it is doing.” After listening to me natter on and on she said, “did you check the connection on the internet cable itself, screw it in tight?” Holy barking mother of Maude, it was loose. I screwed it in tight and now the internet works. If I weren’t so incredibly relieved and elated I might feel like a complete maroon (Foghorn Leghorn reference which I’m not going to bother to tie to astrology).
So someone with Mars-Mercury gave me a simple tech tip and solved my systemic problem. Hallelujah. Mars (action) in Aquarius (the internet, systems) aspecting Mercury (simple communications, machinery) in Capricorn (work, maintenance). It’s a good day to make sure all your connections are tight. Don’t be like me, avoid the “facepalm” moment.
Ever had a terrible problem only to find there’s an embarrassingly simple solution?
