The days before and after Thanksgiving are some of the busiest travel days of the year. If you've decided to hit the road or fly anyways, Mercury retrograde November 2018 is going to make things extra stressful.
"Mercury retrograde November 2018is square Neptune which adds confusion and deception to the usual Mercury retrograde problems like communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items," Astrologer Jamie Partridge wrote on Astrology King. If you're flying, it's best to carry on instead of checking a bag. You'll also want to plan ahead for delays. This means bringing a book or downloading some shows to your tablet or computer so you have something to do while you wait, and preparing yourself mentally so you don't have an airport meltdown.
Hope For The Best But Prepare For The Worst.
Keep A Cool Head & A Kind Heart
Even though Mercury turns direct Dec. 6, it's in its shadow period until Dec. 24. According to Coleman,the chaotic energy of Mercury retrograde could linger until then. This means that everything that applies to Thanksgiving travel also applies to December travel. If you haven't bought a flight yet or committed to going home, it might be best to stay put until New Year's.
