The Fox Business Network went on the air at 5:00 AM EDT this morning. Mercury retrograde* is not an ideal time to begin a new business venture. There is a greater chance the venture will fail or take a completely unexpected turn from its original purpose.
Mercury rules all forms of communications and the news media, so for a new network to debut during Mercury retrograde is a real faux pas to say the least. A horoscope for the 5:00 AM debut further emphasizes Mercury’s energies. The network is likely to face all kinds of technical problems and reporting inaccuracies.
