If your news feed is full of pictures of brooms, here’s why. Apparently someone came up the #BroomChallaenge, where your broom will stand on it’s own but only today, claiming NASA said that today is the only day your kitchen broom will stand up on its own, aligning with "the tilt of the earth." Mercury is not in retrograde and the tilt of the Earth has not changed and probably won't anytime soon. So your broom will stand on it's own today, tomorrow, and any day that you try it. So please, continue on with your life.
