Lock yourselves inside for the next few weeks.
Call in sick.
Fake your own death.
Mercury is in retrograde which of course means two things:
1. Precisely no one is safe, and;
2. There’s absolutely nothing you can do to stop it.
The planet which astrologists believe rules communication, intelligence and timing is tipped to go haywire from, well, yesterday, right up until July 31. So if you were late to work this morning, have been misspelling your own name in emails all day, and generally feel like your brain could have actually been replaced with a potato, don’t worry, you haven’t lost the plot.
It’s all the devil planet of Mercury’s doing.
Honestly, there is no other plausible explanation.

For the rest of the month, astrologists are predicting we will encounter travel issues, communication mishaps, and technological difficulties which sounds like exactly what we we all need in our lives right now.
Oh but it gets better.
Apparently this retrograde, we will be moving back from Leo to Cancer, then from Cancer to Leo again. While that sentence makes our brains feel even more potato-like because we have not a single clue what it actually means, experts have translated it to spell ~drama~.
And no. We don’t want it.
We are perfectly capable of lighting trash fires in our lives on our own without the planets’ involvement, thank you very much.
