Certain things are in the air, they seem to float into my consciousness by osmosis. Take for instance Monday night’s full moon and the fact that Mercury is retrograde. I cannot recall where or when I heard about either event, neither had I any idea what Mercury retrograde meant, so I had a quick look on the net. Apparently it’s an astrological concept, a period when Mercury seems to be travelling backwards and during which things are more likely to go wrong than right. Mercury is retrograde three to four times a year, the current period runs from 30th March to 23rd April. Phew, it’s almost finished.
