The day begins on a sour note, especially for those of us who may be travelling or have a full day ahead. In addition to the usual Mercury retrograde frustrations, we may notice a melancholy mood permeating this morning's vibes, making it hard to get into the holiday spirit. The good news is that the mood shouldn't last long, clearing up by midday.
