Heads Up: Mercury's In Retrograde
As for universal happenings having effects on humans, I mean we don't really know, it's just a belief. We know for a fact the moon rules the tides on Earth though, as in controlling movements of the oceans, enormous bodies of water and we're made up of 60% water. If you want to tell me the moon doesn't do anything to us, then okay, I for one have to believe logic. Mercury was named after the Olympic god who was considered the messenger, ruling transportation and communication. My two cents, lay low until the 20th. Don't make any big moves, change the oil in your car and most importantly limit the gossip, as it could come back and bite you hard; but hey, you can always blame it on mercury retro!
