They All Come Back

When joking about relationships that didn't work out, I say girl, "One day he'll be back. They all will come back and say how wonderful I was back when he knew me." This week that has been happening WAY too much.

It started with my scummy boy. Ok he's not so scummy anymore but he just popped up out of the blue. Good ole' Facebook - he emailed me and we exchanged numbers. I hadn't heard from him since 2004! (Ironically the last time I saw him it was at Mardi Gras in New Orleans.) It was cool to hear from him but it was like hmmm, where'd that come from. And he said the thing, "You are so awesome I was so whack for not doing right back in the day." (Ok he didn't really say that, but you get the point.)

I was shocked to hear from Scummy Boy, but the shock of the month was when I heard from my first. Yes THAT first. Normally I don't answer unknown numbers but this week I did something to my phone and deleted all of my contacts and w/the nature of my job, I can't miss calls. So when he called it was from some weird number so I answered. I was FLOORED when he said who he was (ummm, where the heck did you appear from and more importantly what the heck do you want?!?!). So I said I'd call back but didn't. We connected later during the week. He wasn't talking about much but it was so bizarre that he'd call. I guess it didn't move me that much because I don't know that man and he doesn't know me. I can't even remember what was so special - I was just 16 after all, so maybe it wasn't a grand connection. He didn't say any of the "you were the one I let get away," but he did mention several times how fab I was and how accomplished I am ... how'd he get my number anyway?!?!

In astrology right now, the phenom of Mercury Retrograde is occurring. Its a time to reflect, review, adjust as needed and move on. This time its affecting me in the area of relationships. Who knows what rocks these guys crawled from under but I'm more interested in the lessons I'm supposed to learn from the past as it relates to them. It brings up lots of personal work but I'm ready to confront my unresolved issues and move on. That's exactly what Mercury does during retrograde ... it literally backs up in the sky for a while makes adjustments, then continues forward. Full steam ahead ...
