Mercury goes direct today at 545pm EST. Many purchased electronics on Friday. This of course is not recommended because of so many factors ranging from malfunctions, change of mind, better deals being visible after the retrograde, and the party receiving the merchandise many not need or want it.
SAFEGUARD THAT RECEIPT! Try to postpone your shopping until later in the day.
