Those who spend time on social media or their professions center around Instagram, all came to a full STOP today. The world just got a little quieter and I am thankful for it.
I still had plenty of work to do updating my community about the New Moon in Virgo and getting those communications out on Monday.
Why Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp All Went Down Today
WIRED: The problem relates to something called BGP routing, and it could take a while longer to resolve.
Vedic Astrology and Instagram Down
The astrology of the day points to three planets in retrograde and the disconnect between Mercury Retrograde and the ‘dark moon’ day of the month.
The dark moon day of the month is called a Red Day in the Conscious Calendars system which is based in Vedic astrology algorithms and help you live your life according to natural rhythm.
Mercury Retrograde and Purple Days do not bring social media blackouts, but it is interesting to see Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp and messenger have all been DOWN, right in between the Purple Days and the one Red Day this month during this Mercury Retrograde.
I still think this is a relatively good Mercury Retrograde overall because Mercury has just returned to its most powerful place in the sky, Virgo, on October 2. Mercury will start to deliver better results in our lives for teaching, tech and marketing after it goes direct. Read more about when Jupiter and Mercury go direct in October 2021.
What a lovely quiet break the world is getting with all of that social media being down!
