Embrace the MONSTER MOON!

Warning: This blog post is very heavily saturated in Astrology and weird galactic happenings. If you happen to be skeptical about such things and/or terrified, we recommend reading the following material with an open mind. Which is actually how you should read most things in life, we say. Despite how big of babies we can be at times, we are all completely capable of changing and accepting the life around us. Even if we aren't completely certain of how we feel about it.

That said...

Just yesterday KT (co-writer for this blog and partner in shop girl crime) and I were discussing the state of our lives at that current moment in time. And both of us agreed that things have been mutually topsy turvy lately. Which then triggered KT to remind me that "Mercury is in Retrograde" and even though I had heard that phrase uttered at least a dozen times over the last couple of weeks, I realized that I didn't actually know what it meant.

So after much internet research, I found out that Astrologers of the WORLD say the following:

-Famed astrologer to most of the fashion industry, Susan Miller says: "Mercury is a planet which governs all transportation and communication issues. Mercury is not an emotional planet, but rather a highly objective, truth-seeking one. It rules intelligence, education and truth. When it is in retrograde, some of its power is held back.

When Mercury starts turning in an apparent backward motion, we will start to feel the effects of this event days or even as far as two weeks earlier. When the planet normalizes we will see the tempo of events pick up in our lives as the planet becomes "stationary" and then speeds forward."

And so, being the incredibly gullible and yet detective-like person that I am, I decided to put this OUT THERE. For all of you to take hold of and scrutinize and possibly discover for the first time.

Because until I've lived in this part of the world (aka the Northwest) I didn't know concepts such as this. That the way that I feel and am acting could be conducted by such galactic graces as the stars, planets and even THE MOON.

Which brings me to the whole purpose of this blog post: The Supposed Future Attack of Ever-Anticipated MONSTER MOON!

"Oh shit..."

After much clicking and scanning of articles, squinting at computer screens and basically psyching myself out I noticed a constant trend among every place I looked: that March 27th (this month, dear people!) will bring about an intensely sensational full moon. One that will change everything! And not really for the better...

So, at the risk of sounding insanely paranoid and slightly intoxicated I am going to offer up my bit of advice in regards to this future situation. I say SCREW IT! If we all know that something crazy is going to happen then we can prepare ourselves for it. Let's dress to the nines, leave for work with a smile on our faces and confidence in our step. Let's act inappropriately and dance and be silly. Let's not let this "Monster Moon" be the tremendously tragic time it's scheduled to be. Let's see if ridiculousness and the lack of taking things seriously can change what is supposedly in store for us earthlings.

And THEN let's compare notes!

We hope you follow our advice and stay safe and silly during this weirdo time!
