Of All The Days For Mercury to be in Retrograde.

Honestly, do we really need this planet? All it seems to do is go backward and turn life upside down. From today until November 26, Mercury passes the Earth in its orbit—otherwise known as retrograde. Otherwise known as TOTAL CHAOS. At least in the communication, organization and detail-oriented departments. So basically everything. Now is the time to cross your Ts and dot your Is, avoid any major changes or new undertakings, and triple check your emails before hitting Reply All. There’s also the whole election thing. According to my go-to astrology advisors, the Astro Twins: “As you head to the voting booths today, concentrate deeply on the lever you’re pressing. The last time Mercury was retrograde on Election Day was in 2000 when Al Gore was declared President of the USA, only to discover the next day that Bush actually won due to a miscount. It’s already a nail-biting election to begin with, here’s hoping Mercury’s retrograde doesn’t add more drama to the mix.”  –Bets
