Look! For only $320,000 USD, you can own this life-size, animatronic, remote-controlled version of Robby the Robot from the 1956 film “Forbidden Planet.” I imagine that you can program him to throw his arms in the air and shout “Warning! Warning!”, too.
While that sounds like a delightful way to spend your trust fund, I would avoid making such a big purchase online over the next few days. With Mercury stationary in the last few degrees of Scorpio, mistakes are likely to be made with electronic transactions, travel reservations, forwarded emails, etc. Errors you make are likely to come back to haunt you over the next couple of weeks as Mercury picks up speed and moves out of its retrograde shadow. Errors you have already made will also resurface.
Mercury retrogrades are common occurrences, so I don’t tend to interpret them as major events. The thing about this particular retrograde cycle is that Mercury moved from the sign of its detriment back into a sign that has a special relationship with Karma. That means that you might have to pay a price for a sloppy mistake you made by failing to pay attention to detail. It’s kind of your own fault . . .
Whatever you do, don’t make things worse by failing to recognize the role you played in this dilemma. The sun squares Neptune today, so I imagine that people are going to tell some tall tales in order to deflect blame. There is a theme of “delusion” characterizing the next couple of days. Liars are going to lie, but it’s not likely that they are going to be believed.
It’s going to be a weird couple of days. Be warned!
