Worse, on Mercury Retrograde: The cosmic art of driving in reverse gear while looking through the rear-view mirror, there's more news:
Because the outer planets remain in direct motion or retrograde for such long periods of time, the point where they change directions or change signs or make exact contact with other planets can be momentous.There follows a short list of other aspects, transits, toe-steppings, burps, blunders, etc., of the stars and planets.
The current retrograde period will run from 7 to 29 September. During this time, Mercury will be making contact with several outer planets, which are themselves about to shift positions. [emphasis added by the horrified amanuensis]
Maybe we should all stay home under the covers until the 30th!
At least there's this:
Mercury shifts backwards on 18 September from fair-minded Libra into service- and organisation-driven Virgo. If there are any two signs in the zodiac for Mercury to express itself in a way that can help us make sense of the current craziness, it’s probably these two.Walhydra certainly hopes so...because in addition to all of this, the Moon is in Caca!
