The Astrology Show news recently covered the struggle and eventual success of astrology app Co-Star in being made available via Google Play Store. But now we have a classic Mercury Retrograde twist to the story. After just after two weeks of being live on the Google Play store, finally allowing those with Android phones to download the app, Co-Star suddenly vanished from the Google Store on Wednesday, February 5th, 2020, right in the midst of Mercury Retrograde Shadow… seriously an astrologer could have written that script!
Below is an excerpt from www.jessicaadams.com from back in November 2019 explaining what to expect as Mercury Retrograde entered the shadow period in the sign of Aquarius at the beginning of February 2020:
“Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius – February 2nd, 3rd, 4th 2020″
“This is chaotic for all groups, teams, clubs, societies, associations and networks. We would expect this period to hit Facebook particularly hard, as it triggers that chart. Facebook may be hacked, for example, or you may see ‘Facebook down’ reported on Google. The share price of Facebook might fluctuate – let’s see.
What we have here is Mercury hopping around at 28 and 29 degrees Aquarius as February begins – then he disappears – along with the discussions or plans – only to boomerang back from around March 5th to 16th (adjust for your time zone as astrology is based on London UT).” (See full blog post here,)
We will probably never know what went on behind the scenes at Google on February 2nd, 3rd or 4th, triggering Co-Star’s “disappearance” on the 5th but we can certainly give Co-Star a bravery award for their extremely strongly worded response on Twitter (see below). By the way Co-Star is said to have Libra Sun.
And just like you would expect when Mercury is retrograde? Things bounce around and change very rapidly. For just 10 hours after Co Star voiced its distress over the treatment by Google, the app was reinstated on Google Play!
