This isn't my fault, is it?

My Saturn return isn't supposed to fuck with everyone else, is it? Today has been a day of bitch slaps.

First, I found out that the court royally fucked my two clients who were sentenced yesterday. They delayed the sentencing of one; the other, they switched prosecutors on, and in the blink of an eye, changed his sentence from 5-23 months jail to 23 months to 20 years prison. His wife is having a baby in seven weeks. I realize that a crime was committed by him, but what the court did to him isn't remotely moral.

Second, a dear friend of mine is getting a divorce. I feel bad, because I didn't see them lasting, and yet I participated in their ceremony. I just realized something, in a strange tangent- I'm 1 & 4 for weddings where I'm in the wedding party; one is still together after nine years, the others have fallen apart. Two lasted less than a year! I'm the I Honestly Love You of groomsmen(for those that have seen The Wedding Planner)! mister_biv and curlycutie may want to rethink my participation in their nuptials.

While your Saturn Return is not affecting others directly because, well, it's your Saturn Return...remember that a Saturn Return period is a time of experiencing and learning some major lessons in our life path. And so, what's happening to/with others around you is related to what you may need to be experiencing or learning at this juncture in your life during this particular Return.

That's probably very simplistic (and I'm hardly an astrology expert)...but just wanted to toss that in for you.

thanks. I've become so hypervigilant/freaked out since Saturn entered Leo last weekend, that I'm willing to 'blame' anything on it. I'm planning on embracing the change.

I suppose I'm <b>[Unknown LJ tag]</b>, eh?
Not on my life, I wouldn't.

Re: I suppose I'm <b>[Unknown LJ tag]</b>, eh?
Fixed it. I'm glad you'll still have me! When you look at the weddings closely, my track record doesn't seem so bad.

Wedding 1 - Aunt Dina to Bob, ringbear, age 5. They lasted about 20 years before they split
Wedding 2 - Dad to Judy, best man, age 16. They lasted just over a year.
Wedding 3 - Autumn to Darren, groomsman, age 18. They are still together.
Wedding 4 - Dad to Lesa, best man, age 20?. about 5 years.
Wedding 5 - Mike to Karlee, groomsman/we were all best men together, age 27. Less than one year.

When you figure in the stats associated with second and third marriages, I may be ahead of the average divorce rate even!

I figured (well, Chrissy figured first) that you were talking about Mike and Karlee.

I wouldn't blame you at all or say that you were cursed. I'd say that's more the sign of a true friend, you stand by someone's side even if they're doing something you don't necessarily agree with or think is right for them.

As for me, I've only participated in one wedding (Tina and Mark, groomsman, age 15... six years, but they are back together now although they aren't legally married). I was very, very ill the day of their wedding (in late December) and ended up leaving the reception very early to go to bed. I hate to think that was some kind of "curse"... but I don't really have a pattern to go by.

cool. Do you think I can convince Colin Farell to make out with me to break the curse? I know I'd feel better if that were to happen!!!

Just don't catch the bouquet
My wedding "curse" is catching the bouquet. Three catches, three divorces. How's that for a pattern. I refuse to catch any more...even if I'm still single at 70.

While we all were supportive of his decision, we were talkin some serious smack about her, eh? (Even when we snuck him out on his wedding night to get him drunk enough to not back out the next day.) I just got that "Wedding Binder since 13 with a dotted line for "Insert Man Here"" vibe from her, which is what I don't like about those types of girls. Yes, tis better to have the Three Toes roaming free, I say.
