Born under the sign of Virgo, I lean a tad toward perfectionism. And Mercury being my ruling planet, I have a hell of a time when it turns retrograde. In the last month, I feel as though I’m going in a million different directions, like I’m spinning out of control. And I seem to be getting nowhere and not doing anything terribly well.

The real wake up call was when I hurt my back. There’s nothing like an injury to force you to slow down the pace and reassess what’s really important…and what you can let go.

In that spirit, I am taking a break from Silky and from posting this blog. I simply have too much on my plate right now and need to take care of myself before I do some serious damage. Happy Autumn!
