[someone make that cha cha slide remix, ty]
after over 3 weeks of seeming to go backwards (like why?!), mercury stations direct today!
and i’m probably in the minority when I say that, on the whole, it’s been good for me. it probably helped that mercury has been hanging out in pisces. (feel free to hate me for this): the trains had never been kinder to me and that’s just one light (but impt!) example of feeling in sync with the things.
but when the sun shifted to #ariesszn, this ease started to crumble a bit. all the bumps in the road became super present & annoying where they had faded into background noise easily in prior weeks.
so the easy narrative might be that this big sun shift was a small test on how the patience and smoothness I had found in the dailyness of tryna be (feel free to stop reading, like now lol). idk if I ‘passed’ if this was the thing
an even cheesier thread to surface is how these big/small/medium shifts are putting in sharper relief my attunements to myself, the things near me, and everything else that revolves around me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ;) ;) ;)
light a fire y’all, it’s Aries season!

some book thoughts
Katy Waldman on YA books and cancel culture
(speaking of) Ani Bundel on J.K. Rowling’s endless retcon’s ugh
and just finished Chemistry by Weike Wang, which reminded me in some ways of So Many Olympic Exertions by Anelise Chen, which I read last year. Read Larissa Pham’s quick drawing of parallels on failure between the two in a longer response to Severance by Ling Ma (previously s/o’d in this slushie)
goodbye march 🔥🔥
