I’m sure at some point in the last couple of years you have heard someone say something like this:
“OMG Did you hear? Mercury is in Retrograde. UGH. Now I have to wait 8 weeks to get the new iPhone.”
Or maybe something like this:
“No, we can’t sign the contract for the new house because Mercury is doing that retrograde thing. I know, it really sucks!”
Or maybe even this:
“We broke up. And my car died. And my flight was delayed like 5 times in a 24 hour period. Yea, it’s because Mercury is going retro. I’m convinced I should just lock myself in a room for 8 weeks the next time this planet decides to have it’s period or whatever. I hate you Mercury!”
It’s SO funny isn’t it? This whole “let’s blame Mercury Retrograde for all of our life problems” game that we play.
