ETA/B> Looks like I have been stood up. My movers were called East Bay Moving Services (510.334.0941). They haven't returned any of my calls for the past couple days. I just figured they were out of town on a big move, maybe, and out of cell phone range. But nothing last night and nothing this morning.
I'm still packing -- that was a given, really. (It's nowhere near as bad as it looks. Honest.) I'd figured they could help.
I've already left messages with a couple of movers and my building super.
I may call my storage place and see if they know anybody who can move me at short notice. They were very nice people.
Now, Mercury is retrograde. It's a full moon (in Cancer, yet -- sign of the home). And there's an eclipse today. The Moon is in opposition to Pluto and Venus, and square to Saturn. That's a T-square and a powerful one.
All of these are VERY bad aspects for a successful move. Don't ever freaking tell me astrology has no effect. Feel free, however, to tell me I am an idiot for knowing but still moving now anyway. OTOH, stars or no stars, I need to get out of this apartment.
