Yesterday, almost everyone we spoke with was having a problem with their computers. Our distributor was having server problems. Our computers weren’t doing online ordering. Kids were acting crazy. A whole section of kids books was mysteriously sticky. Customers couldn’t find the list of books to order they thought they’d brought. Then there were more computer problems.
What’s been going on? I don’t think it’s just that it’s summer and kids are out of school so our brains are feeling a little softer and our schedules have gotten a little less predictable.
One customer explained to us that Mercury is in retrograde. Almanac.com offers this astrological advice for now until mid-July: “When Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts.” That might be tough.
But whether the super-moon, the summer, Mercury in retrograde, or anything else has given you extra stress this week, I wish you a great book to unwind with at the end of the day– and all the good vibes I can give.
Crave a little astrological advice? Your local independent bookstore can get you Mercury in Retrograde, maybe without even requiring much patience or flexibility.
