Is it really so strange?

I've been looking at a blank text box, with a flashing cursor, for hours now. Maybe there's a Mercury retrograde.
It's funny, but I have gotten to the point where I can actually feel them. Any time I mention something of this nature, I am compelled to explain why it isn't some hokey nonsense.
It's this simple for me, if a celestial body, like, the moon, for example, can affect the earth's tides, then humans, (mostly water) would surely be subject to the same influences. Right? That's fairly scientific, isn't it?
And to take that a little further, couldn't the position of all these influencing bodies (planets, etc), at the moment we're born, impact our personalities?
AH-HA!
I just checked, and there is a mercury retrograde on!
It seems to adversely affect communications on every level. I was just reading on this site, http://www.cafeastrology.com/mercuryretrograde.html, and it says, "Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect us to other means of communication, such as when there is an unexpected power outage and we're forced off the computer and television, finding different and often satisfying ways to entertain ourselves."
We've just had a problem with our electric, it's only been back on since yesterday morning after a four day outage! Weirdness.
It's things of this nature, repeatedly occurring in my life, that make this impossible to ignore.
I don't know why, with all the supporting evidence, my practical nature still wags a proverbial finger at my speculation on the subject. Perhaps I fear bias.
Cognitive dissonance. I am, as always, trying to house conflicting points of view. I guess I think that there is a way for these things to influence behaviour without being pre-destined. I don't know, maybe there is pure science in here somewhere, and we just don't have the technology to fully explain it yet. Or maybe we have the technology, and just haven't applied it in the appropriate manner.
Anyway, I'm not sure how relevant any of it is, more of an amusing observation than a tool of divination. I seriously can't see guiding my life via horoscope! Though my life could definitely use some guidance of some sort.

That's funny, I say the same thing to people about the moon. If it can affect the sea, it can affect us. People look at me like I'm crazy. The best horoscopes, I think, are Jonathan Cainer's. You might like him. www.cainer.com
