It will be interesting to see if there are less retail returns than usual this Christmas given the fact that Mercury begins to retrograde in earnest at exactly 2:39 Universal time on Saturday, December 26th in the traditional business sign of Capricorn...the time when shoppers are finally through with their holiday shopping.
Since Mercury just misses wreaking decision making havoc on holiday shoppers minds retail returns should be kept to a minimum thereby avoiding potential yuletide headaches and long return lines. We shall see.
In the meantime, after the celebration period is over life will go on as usual. When preparing pre-nups, travel plans or purchasing a new set of wheels the best time would would be anytime from February 4th and after.
