Are you having a crazy month, week, several days? Does it seem like life is crumbling around you? And have you been told that Mercury is in Retrograde? Well, I’m here to tell you, “Yes, everything is chaotic at the moment and that silly planet Mercury is to blame.” This phenomenon is known as “Mercury Retrograde.”
No, I’m not a fortune teller or astronomist, astrologist, or anything important, just an observer of life who had several people advise me not to make any decisions until after Wednesday when Mercury was no longer in retrograde. I have no clue what that means, but from what I have observed, I will hold off on signing that million dollar bonus I was promised until Thursday.
Apparently, Mercury is the mac daddy of the astrological world. And when it is in Retrogade, there is some kind of pull causing everyone’s life to go off-balance. According to a real astrologer named Lisa Stardust quoted in a publication called “Express” floating in the World of WW somewhere, the people of the earth will be forced to face uncomfortable truths during Mercury Retrograde. Even worse, it is really up to you to decide what’s fact or fiction, and since communication sucks at the moment, that will be a challenge.
What is Mercury Retrograde and how do we stop it? At the moment, Mercury is speeding past Earth while it orbits the Sun. The good news is, assuming Mercury doesn’t have to wait for a red light or long train, it should be past Earth by August 2nd or 3rd. The bad news is that darn Mercury planet will be orbiting the earth again in late October. Dangit.
Somehow right now, Leos everywhere are struggling to control their communications because of Mercury (if you believe in astrology). I don’t think you have to be a Leo to struggle right now. Before you sign on the dotted line, make a big relationship decision, or change careers, you might want to give it a few more days until that little turd of a planet, Mercury, settles down.
