All you witches, real and costumed, take heed: the winged messenger stations to turn retrograde on Halloween this year. Early in the morning PST; late at night for our UK witchy sisters. You might want to accessorize your costume with a little Murphy’s Law this year!
Mercury is retrograde for about 3 1/2 weeks. The day it actually stops and turns backwards is the day that lends itself to confusion. Mercury is a speedy planet; when it’s rhythm suddenly changes, there are glitches in timing. Expect changes, and lapses, in personal timing on Halloween. Maybe get started on that costume now; the more you procrastinate, the more you invite the spirit of mercury retrograde into your holiday plans!
