Is Mercury In Retrograde The New Black?

When is seems that the SHTF
all at the same time, I start to wonder.
What's going on?
From tsunamis to tornadoes
from friends having heart attacks to siblings lives abruptly changing (and not for the better)
from all things tech going awry at what seems to be the same time
Is it because Mercury is retrograde?
I have no idea but I'm looking for a woo-woo excuse to explain it all.

Apparently all this astrological obstruction is supposed to last until mid May.

My mood is rather black today, as are my clothes.
Luckily, I've got my happy panda pendant to give me a cheerier look!

Yes, I know, you can't see anything from this photo
So here's the close up, happy isn't it?

OK, so maybe a big panda pendant is too juvenile for me
So how about this flower pendant?
Yes this is more my style

I don't know, maybe today I should just stick with wearing this

Maybe I should fight the universe and wear only pastels from now until mid May.
To hell with the retrograded Mercury!
