ALIZA: We've been seeing a lot of foot-in-mouth (or dick-on-Zoom) miscommunications and technology foibles during this current Mercury retrograde, and I expect that will continue for the next few weeks (yes, even after Mercury goes direct) as the planet retraces its steps across Libra and Scorpio.
JESSICA: Mercury governs over pretty much everything related to voting — getting information, using the mail, filling out forms, making choices, following instructions, even counting ballots and tracking the data! That the planet is retrograde leading up to the election means that there's a high chance that we will experience delays, confusion, and complications.
JAKE: Mercury rules communication, travel, and commerce. My BIGGEST fear with Mercury retrograde (which ends on Election Day, BTW) is that it’ll be more difficult than ever for people to make their voices heard. I'm talking delays and tech glitches with voting machines, miscounted and uncounted ballots, scheduling mishaps, voter suppression, mail-in ballots getting lost or arriving late, and on Election Day there are almost CERTAINLY going to be unreasonably long lines at the voting booths around the world…like lines that are hours long. Early voting is a thing, so if that’s possible, I highly recommend others to go out and vote early if they can, ESPECIALLY this election!
LISA: Being that this retrograde was moving backwards from intense Scorpio who’s a water sign to lighthearted Libra who’s an air sign, secrets and scandals are being revealed. Trump’s COVID diagnosis is an example of this.
ADAMA: It's not an ideal time to have an important election, that's for sure. Mercury rules written and verbal communication and information. When it's retrograde in both of these signs, we can experience misinformation, disorganization, and the unexpected truths being revealed. All of this can cause some confusion and inaccuracy in the voting process!
