Mercury is in Retrograde

We have a running joke in the office that if anything goes wrong we blame it on Mercury retrograde, so much so that we put it in our calendar so that we’re on high alert! For the sceptics, a little lesson! Astrology is based on a simple understanding that all the planets in the sky exert their own unique influence/force on each of us, and the world we live in. Of course, we know this to be true already – you just have to look at how the example of the moon and how it affects the tides. So we, of course, are susceptible to some of its effects, seeing as humans we are 60% water ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, when Mercury goes into retrograde (appears to move in reverse) things can go a little backward. It is said, Mercury rules intelligence, mind ? memory and, all types of communication and self-expression. In a more public sense, it rules commerce, computers telephones  are transportation and air travel
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Under this planetary influence, (which occurs three times this year – lucky us!) communications of all types go ‘haywire’. You experience misunderstandings and communication failures in such great abundance that you’ll look up at the sky and stars and say, ‘What the fuck is going on!?’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The answer is: Mercury is in Retrograde

So there you go, a reason to blame whatever is going wrong in your life on the stars Or for those who may say or do the wrong thing this month – you’re just under the influence of Mercury! I have found the perfect card to send to a few people!
