I think there is something strange going on in the cosmos this week. It seems that every night I get a phonecall from a friend whose life is being turned upside down as carelessly as though they were rubbish in a skip. The problems vary; my brother crashed his car and totalled it. A friend's mother is teetering on the brink of a breakdown because she is looking after her dying mother and sick husband. Two nights ago the sweetest terrier in the world, just turned two and the perfect illustration of the joys of being alive, got hit by a car and died instantly. I could go on but it doesn't achieve anything to list all the disasters..
Now, I am not somebody who remotely believes in astrology. I mean how on earth can 12% of the population have the same day as each other? And how ludicrous are the predictions anyway? Quite obviously it is all bunkum. However, weeks like this do make me feel that maybe there is something in Mars getting stuck up Uranus. I mean something must be going on that so much seems to be in turmoil at once.
Times like this should make you feel grateful if you haven't had to suffer some horrible upheaval but instead they tend to make me nervous. Is fate waiting behind the white picket fence and the shrubbery ready to trip me up on a banana skin and gouge out my heart with a spoon???
So to all those who are being tortured by the cosmos, my thoughts are with you. To those who have escaped unscathed - watch out for banana peel, picket fences and spoons......
