You are the popcorn kernel currently shoved into my gums in an unreachable part of my mouth.
Yours in hot messedness,
Now for those who are not familiar with Mercury Retrograde, see below:
In astronomy terms:
“Three or four times a year, Mercury passes the earth in its orbit. As it rounds the bend, Mercury slows down and appears to stop (station) and spin backward (retrograde). Of course, it really ISN’T moving backward, but much like two trains or cars passing each other, this creates the optical illusion that one (Mercury, in this case) is going backward.”
In terms of astrology:
“Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology—so all of these areas go haywire for about three weeks”
The current Mercury retrograde is from August 30-September 22. Oh and you can feel the effects a few days on either side of that date range. Oh joy!
Now, I used to not believe in such things. You know the whole debate between Christianity and Astrology. But as I have grown older and done more research I believe the two can coexist and compliment one another.
So if you have recently found yourself misunderstood in conversation, generally unfocused, your tech on the fritz, and your travel plans shot to hell, then thank Mercury and know that it is not your imagination.
Personally, Mercury has been working me over like a sugar daddy on a college campus. I’m not gonna lie, if you’re looking for the impending upside, I ain’t got it BUT if you would like to find some tips on mercury retrograde survival then click here.
6 days (give or take) and counting…
