I didn’t understand the weight of those dreaded three words until a couple of years back when a friend expressed her thoughts about it on Instagram of all places. Suddenly the words Mercury in retrograde followed by the odd expletive were cropping up everywhere … well, mainly Twitter, but you get the gist. As a firm believer of creating our own luck, I took it with a pinch of salt.
But after one broken shower and a broken windscreen in the last couple of weeks, and I can definitely vouch for Mercury in retrograde being an absolute headache. I don’t think I’m the only one looking forward to normality to resume.
