Have you noticed any weirdness in the air? We are pretty reasonable people. We like science. We read our horoscopes every once in awhile, but we take it with a big grain of salt. HOWEVER… Mercury is seriously retrograde right now and we are feeling it. Mercury moving in a retrograde (backwards) direction is an optical illusion caused by the different orbital speeds of the Earth and Mercury as they go around the sun. During the times that Mercury is appearing to go backwards, many people here on Earth report that communication and travel are more difficult and prone to annoying complications. I can’t speak for the experiences of people on Mercury.
Are you currently shopping for an engagement ring? If you are, here’s some advice from two professional engagement ring consultants. Mercury may be in retrograde, but you don’t have to let these common engagement ring pitfalls ruin your day.
Okay, ring hunters, best of luck out there!
Oh, one last thing: If you are booking tickets for any kind of travel (for a destination proposal, perhaps) double check that you are buying tickets for the right date. For example, if you want to fly on October 25th don’t book tickets for November 25th by mistake.
