Yesterday I had a client tell me she counted seventy-three ships backed up at the port of Los Angeles. She also asked me about ordering an expensive piece of equipment for her home with all these planets retrograde.
Mercury will turn retrograde Sunday evening. I recommended she hang up the phone and order immediately because once ordered, there’s no telling how long the item may be delayed. The supply is utterly jacked and it’s entirely possible this “specialty” item may become unavailable for many months, never mind the cost going up.
On that note, the Nike CEO said that margins were hurt by a spike in ocean freight surcharges. I doubt the problems are resolved quickly with Mercury retrograde. Do the math.
We do have Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto turning direct in October, but by then, odds are there is going to be quite a snarl, everywhere on every level. It’s hard to say how long it might take to untangle, but I understand from clients and other people I know, prices that have risen are expected to rise more. Apparently there is a glass shortage. I noticed that Snapple bottles are now made of plastic. I’ve been told warehouses are focused on core items, so if you like or need something special, most definitely procure it as soon as you can. We know from astrology there will be serious trouble into November.
Five days ago I said I thought the Mercury square Pluto would be “Possibly Ugly”. Now I’d say “Probably Ugly”. This doesn’t mean you can’t have a nice day today. In fact, I would recommend you do just that! And remember, this won’t last forever. Bad (and good) times never do.
