Stress test on Mercury Retrograde
Last week when The Treasury Department said they would push the results from the Stress Department to……drum roll, May 7. I (and I’m sure many other astrologers) almost fell over. May 7 is when Mercury turns retrograde. I am not sure when the announcement will be made but my best guess is it will be in the morning while Moon is still in Libra. Perhaps when the data is in the hands of experts it will be soft and fuzzy hard to decipher in a Mercury retrograde way----but by the time the Moon moves into Scorpio (12:48pm EDT) it will have been sliced, diced and the cold hard facts will be in.
There is already rumors that BofA needs 34 billion dollars. And I’m sure others will be in similar shape. But having this hit while Mercury is retrograde in Gemini it might just be a case of “tell me some bad news I don’t already know.”
Same goes with the job reports due on Friday.
