Mercury’s in Retrograde. Again.

Yesterday, while the plumber was performing $200 worth of CPR on my clogged kitchen sink, the internet inexplicably stopped working and I somehow managed to lock the dog in the other room—without a key.

Such chaos could only mean one thing: Mercury is officially in retrograde.

For those of you who don’t believe in planetary hocus pocus, let me break it down: Anything detailed-oriented or organizational (emails, taxes, bills, meetings, communication in general) will be going to H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks from now through March 24.

I can’t express how much I dread these retrogrades. Things fall apart for NO OTHER REASON. But there’s good news this time! According to the Astro Twins, my astrological go-to girls,”Three planets will form a heavenly trine in earth signs this week, helping us ground our dreams in a practical vision and manifest results from a stable, sensible place.”

Yes! I love a good manifestation. Better get cracking on a dream or vision so you can take full advantage. Read what else the twins have to say about Mercury in retrograde right here, and feel free to commiserate on your own planetary misfortunes below. May the force be with you all!
