As some of you know, I work in an office with a bunch of therapists. I am a therapist-in-training myself. I am a "facts" person but as a therapist-in-training, I pride myself on also being intuitive and being able to read people's "energies." I'm not a hippie, but I've always been able to pick up on people's "vibes" (for lack of a better word). However, I would describe the therapists with whom I work to be way too caught up in the vibes of the universe and other not-as-scientifically-factual things like Mercury Retrograde. Apparently this is when Mercury's orbit takes it away from Earth and supposedly causes all sorts of miscommunications (interpersonal), technology malfunctions, etc. These therapists are blaming EVERYTHING on Mercury Retrograde. I mean everything. I'm hearing that term at least 20x/day. Fax didn't go through? A client can't articulate his issue well? Somebody missed their appointment? Must be the retrograde! Has anybody ever heard of this? Could be interesting, what would be the excuse for when these things happen on a daily basis outside of a Mercury Retrograde? I'm sorry if I'm offending anyone by saying this, but I find it all just silly. I don't dismiss ALL things astrology, but there are much simpler and believable explanations for miscommunications than another planet moving away from ours - especially when the same things occur when Mercury is not in retrograde.
Also - they all had an entertaining conversation two weeks ago about Morton's Toe (longer 2nd toe) and its associated personality traits. Rattling off these things as though they were fact and providing anecdotal evidence to its truth (my brother's ex-wife's friend had this and it's soooooooo true!). I'm hoping this was a joke, but they were talking about asking people about their feet during the assessment process with the following diagram in mind. I liken these sorts of things to pregnancy symptom checking/spotting.
