Mercury retrograde in the news

mercury retrogradeI love it when people say Mercury retrograde has no effect in the real world.  Just yesterday I was on the phone trying to schedule an appointment to get my car serviced and the dealer’s computer went down.  And then my postman went on a rampage about incorrect box numbers.  And we were unable to get a payoff for a real estate closing which had to be delayed.

Elsewhere in the news:

  • Facebook’s website went down on Thursday, creating panic for millions of addicted users.
  • In New York City a power outage halted all subway trains and created delays for commuters.
  • A Detroit airport lost power due to intense weather and all flights were interrupted creating massive delays.
  • Cellphone carriers Verizon, Vodaphone and Optis experienced network issues, preventing calls by subscribers.
  • A computer glitch in a Dallas jail mistakenly freed 25 prisoners.
  • Target experienced nationwide cash register failures.

In other news Amazon, obviously lacking an astrologer on staff, released its new phone yesterday: the Amazon Fire.  This is not generally something that is recommended during a Mercury retrograde period, so it will be interesting to see what comes of it!
