You may go through a breakup
But, since all contracts are wonky during this time, you might just want to tell your significant other “hey, let’s table this issue till Mercury goes direct. You can just hate me quietly till then.”
You’ll cross wires with people
Communication, in general, is lame right now. Like, you’re best not touching anything with wires or electricity for a while because even those lead to communication. You’ll be the fool texting “hey mom, porn for dinner?” when you mean corn or something.
Your electronics will get all screwy, because you’ll be a total klutz
Thought it might be nice to have a glass of wine by the laptop and finish your screenplay? Nope. You’re going to spill all that Trader Joe’s finest onto the keyboard and ruin $1,700 of your most important equipment. Sorry, bubbeleh.
Your job offer could fall through
Agreements, contracts, etc. are all super iffy during this time. If you thought you had a job offer last week, don’t be shocked if today you get a call from someone in HR like “JK, we found someone younger and willing to work for 50% less than you. BYE.”
Your plane will get delayed
Travel plans when mercury is in retrograde are about as successful as chocolate chips on falafel. Not at all.
Don’t drive a lot
Car accidents are the worst, and because Mercury is in retrograde you’d obviously have some super crappy crash that made national headlines like “Cute 29-Year-Old Midwestern Girl Dies of Collision With Circus Bear.” Nobody wants that. Stay home.
