Astrological Musings

What happens when Mercury and Mars are retrograde at the same time?  Usually not such a vivid example as this:
Three Malaysian churches have been firebombed in as tensions over the use of the word Allah by non-Muslims intensify. 

The churches in the capital Kuala Lumpur were hit by incendiary devices early on Friday ahead of planned protests by Muslims over a High Court decision to end a ban on the use of the word “Allah” by non-Muslims.

The court has suspended its December 31 decision pending an appeal by the government. The government imposed the ban, saying use of the word could lead to confusion and conversions among members of the Islamic faith.

Mercury rules language and Mars rules explosions and violence, and even though Mercury and Mars are not in aspect right now they are still getting our attention since both are traveling retrograde.
