The planets are swinging around at all times, and their movements affect us all in different ways. All planets go retrograde, but Mercury’s journey seems to impact people much more than any other. Romance tends to go haywire. Couples tend to create miscommunications that in turn can cause a domino effect of errors. This means holding off on signing contracts and forming partnerships and alliances, especially getting married!

Theseus disgruntledly agrees (mostly due to Hippolyta’s consternation and her astrologer’s panicked foreboding) to wait four days until these planetary effects have resolved, but unbeknownst to them, the spirit world is already going haywire.

First performed in around 1596, Shakespeare’s comic fantasy of four lovers who find themselves bewitched by fairies is a sly reckoning with love, jealousy and marriage. For centuries it has been one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays.
