Aquarius New Moon - My Surprise
Aquarius bring surprises, often BIG surprises.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had nothing but surprises lately.
Here’s one that might make you chuckle:
One evening I was lying in bed quietly reading when I felt something crawling on my arm and something else up my thigh. I pulled the bedsheets back quickly but saw nothing. A few minutes later, another sensation of crawling down my leg and at the back of my neck.
Still nothing to see. Then out of the corner of my eye I could see a whole army of ants marching across my sheets and into my bed! Yikes! I threw everything off me and jumped up only to find ants crawling around the bed, under the bed, in the mattress……….ugh!
First I tried a couple of natural remedies: soap, lemon and vinegar, baby powder, to no avail.
I needed to get some professional exterminators out.
My landlord has been so good to me and I really didn’t want to disturb him so I decided to find an exterminating company myself.
I went through the Greek Yellow Pages and found a number that looked promising. After speaking with Takis, he said they would be out to me within a half hour. I was delighted with myself thinking I had solved the problem so easily.
A half hour later, two men arrived at the house. One with a notepad and pen in his hand and another carrying an extremely heavy piece of machinery which he was attempting to bring into the house.
He kept asking me urgently: Pote to provlema? Where is the problem?
I was a bit flummoxed because I didn’t think an infestation of ants was such an urgent issue, but I said to him that it was outside my bedroom where the ants are coming in.
He kept asking me, nothing inside the house? No, I said the ants are coming into the house from the garden outside.
Then he said to me, where is your bathroom?
I showed him and he checked out the washbasin. The water wasn’t going down very quickly and he said:
aha, edo inai to provlema!
I thought it was amazing that someone who was here to kill the ants was checking out my bathroom. I was a bit surprised about it, but since there had been a colony of ants in there when I first moved in, I thought that as a professional, maybe he knew something I didn’t as to how they might be getting in.
He removed the hose underneath the sink and showed me that it had snapped and would need to be replaced.
He kept saying, yes, that’s your problem!
At this point I still couldn’t understand what was going to happen with the ants.
Eventually, in desperation, because they spoke hardly any English, I had to call my lovely landlord.
Spyros, always wonderful spoke to these men and he couldn’t really understand what was happening. I told him about the ants and he was confused about the hose from the sink.
Finally, I realised that I hadn’t called out an exterminating company at all.
I had called out a drain cleaning company!!
They came out thinking it was an emergency and thought my drains were blocked!
I laughed about it for hours thinking about how the New Moon in Aquarius AND Mercury retrograde had brought the unexpected. I called out an exterminator who happened to be a drain cleaner who found a problem I didn’t know I had!!
So it all turned out well in the end with these guys coming back the next day replacing the hose and spraying the ants.
