As of Saturday, May 30, Mercury was no longer retrograde. And yes, as I write this I can be found dancing around the office, for the flustered communication, mussed social plans, and kaput electronic devices that have so plagued me in the last few weeks shall bother me no more! (Well, until September 7, when Mercury again goes retrograde, if you want to get technical).
I know that I can't be the only one suffering from a bad case of the Mercury retrogrades. Some of our authors have submitted multiple drafts of articles and manuscripts during the past weeks, catching just one more thing to be changed with each read through.
