Everton playing Liverpool at Anfield is stressful enough but a Merseyside Derby while Mercury is in retrograde could mean complete mayhem. When Mercury enters retrograde, things get chaotic as the planet moves around the Sun faster than the Earth, causing the planet to appear to be going backwards.
During this period, miscommunication and uneasy feelings are common and all astrological signs are cautioned to choose their words wisely, especially when dealing with Liverpool fans.
Sunday’s game will have some tumultuous moments but Everton will learn from any missteps on the pitch to fare better in the second half of the season. The retrograde lasts until December 22nd and we will begin to get more closure near the tail end of it when injured players begin to rejoin the squad.
As a Libra, new manager Big Sam is a natural communicator and he loves to give advice. Allardyce has been concentrating on the mental aspect of the game which will serve the players well because derbies are always emotional.
All Blues fans really want for Christmas is a win over the Reds but after the season we’ve had so far, it’s important to stay strong and survive. Hydration will be key.
To help, here is a guide to what Everton fans will be drinking during the game, according to your astrological sign:
You will drink Chang beer from a keg with your local Everton supporters group.
You will drink hot cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream while you mentally plan your Everton Direct holiday shopping list for your loved ones for the 100th time.
You will drink eggnog with cognac and your mood will change by the minute, arguing with everyone whether Sam Allardyce should or shouldn’t be in charge of Everton.
You will drink five cups of chamomile tea to soothe your nerves while applying to be Everton’s sports psychologist.
You will drink champagne with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at a charity event where you will be performing with your dance troupe while secretly watching the game on your phone.
You will be drinking soup because you got sick from worrying so much about this game.
You will drink Pamplemousse La Croix with your Everton and Liverpool friends while keeping track of everything the ref does so you can share your judgments later.
You and your significant other will share cocktails made with cardamom & saffron infused Mezcal topped with lavender and basil.
You will drink your favorite flavor of Gatorade/Lucozade while watching the game on an elliptical at the gym.
You will drink a Red Bull while watching the game with your boss at Anfield.
You will drink a lambic beer at a bar showing the game in a new country during your trip abroad.
You will provide beer for all of your friends at a game watching party and not drink a single one because you are too concerned with making everyone else happy.
Whatever it is you end up drinking, make sure there’s plenty of it handy, cheers and here’s to Everton - Come On You Blues! #COYB
