On the last day of October, the 31st, also Halloween, the US House of Representatives voted to proceed with an impeachment inquiry of US President Donald Trump.

The vote completed just over half an hour before Mercury turned retrograde — perhaps a little close for comfort with Mercury stationary.

For some people, this process may seem a treat; for others, a trick.

No matter your political inclinations nor your personal preference as to how this may turn out, it would seem that with Mercury turning retrograde shortly after the vote, the process is liable to be highly convoluted.

Keep in mind that Mercury retrograde is akin to Murphy’s Law where: ‘whatever can go wrong could go wrong’.

Another time when Mercury was stationary, and this time Mercury retrograde was turning direct on that day, was Election Day 2000, a most convoluted election result finally determined by one vote — that of US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

I was going to wait and give a heads-up later in the new year regarding Election Day 2020, but since Mercury is highlighted right now, I need to advise you that November 3rd, 2020, similar to November 7th, 2000, has on Election Day Mercury turning from retrograde to direct motion.
