I do not follow astrology. I don’t know much about it. I love nothing more than a night sky full of stars, a beautiful moon, or the glory of that brilliant red orange of a huge sun as it sinks under the horizon. I could not tell you, however, when the full moons are, or what phase any of the planets are in. I believe there is probably much truth in the idea that the phases of the moon and planets affect us, but honestly, I have just never paid attention. Okay, I haven’t paid attention to a whole lot of things…hence the ADHD.
Scrolling through Facebook today I ran across this picture on ADHD – Tales of an Absent Minded Superhero’s page. It made me think. She asked if anyone else was feeling the effects of what was going on in the universe and I couldn’t help but wonder. I had to answer with a resounding YES!! Is THAT what has been wrong with me? Could cosmic forces be to blame for the sudden increase in that jittery wanderlust feeling? The fact that I forget what I’m saying while I’m saying it? The last few days when I can’t think of the right word in mid sentence? That dark impending doom feeling that works its way into the pit of your stomach and stays there? The fact that I can’t get the computer or the iPod to work correctly? (I’ve been trying to insert said photo into this post for about 45 minutes now to no avail. It’s never been hard to do BEFORE.) I have to say the evidence is staggering, I’m just not sure what to make of it. As I read through the comments of others who claimed to have their ADHD symptoms heightened right now, I had to wonder if there was something to the idea that the universe is to blame. I spent about half an hour reading some different astrology blogs learning what exactly Mercury Retrograde meant for us physically. It is truly an interesting concept and one I think I will explore further. I haven’t decided yet how much of it I buy into. It sure would explain a lot though! 😉
What do you guys think? Do you think natural forces like goings on in the solar system affect us physically? Are you experiencing heightened symptoms right now? What do you make of it?
