Happy December, readers! It’s hard to believe 2017’s finale has begun. So let’s review what this week’s astrology is telling the 12 signs for the 12th month of the year. First, don’t panic, but Mercury is retrograde until December 22nd. This does not mean all communication, technology, travel, commerce, and planning will implode. It’ll just slow down. The best way to work with retrograde energy fabulously is to double check details while maintaining flexibility and patience and of course, review. While Mercury moonwalks, Mars was will have a homecoming in Scorpio on Saturday which will increase our resilience and focus in the arena of uncertainty, risk, and slower progress.
The skies shine for you, Sagittarius! Happy birthday season! Don’t let the Mercury retrograde drama stop you from owning this month in glory. Will the retrograde ahead ask you to slow down, re-think, and recalibrate? Absolutely. Does it have to be a birthday buzzkill? Nope! If worked to your advantage, the very best months of your life could be built from this foolproof foundation of self-awareness. Consider a professional consult with a therapist, life coach, or spiritual seeker who can help you finalize the plan with integrity. When Mars enters Scorpio this Saturday, let your subconscious and spiritual wisdom be your guide while you navigate this delicate process of radical self-transformation.
Who you gonna call, Capricorn? Ghostbusters! Full disclosure, this Mercury retrograde will reveal shadow figures and trauma from the past that want to creep up on you when you’re not paying attention. What’s a seagoat to do? Sit with the edge. Don’t go numb or ignore it. Say little, forgive much. Meditate. Exercise. Surrender. Begin again. You can do it, child of Saturn. When Mars lights up Scorpio on Saturday, your friendships and community will provide the soft place to fall and will help you on this healing work. You’ll know from experience that you keep what you give. Give healing to your friends and the Universe gives it back to you, too.
Given your sign’s popularity, I’m sure many images of friends come into your mind’s eye at any given moment. Mercury retrograde will touch your friendship and community experiences, inspiring you to get in touch and reunite with friends from your past. So if you think of one that you have a rich history with “out of the blue”, don’t delay. Reach out and reconnect. Who knows what professional opportunity could come out of it? Mars entering Scorpio will set fire to your career and professional ascension. You’ll be lifted to even higher places at work and/or in public and given the motivation to handle that responsibility with charisma and power.
The ocean’s tide is shifting, Pisces. The universe knows you have career plans on your mind and it’s self-organizing to make it happen while Mercury retrograde reverses the professional plan. Even if your external reality makes you think you’re not making moves because you’re swimming against the tide, focus on the conviction that significant career progress and accomplishment takes time. One day you’ll realize why it didn’t happen overnight, and you’ll give thanks to the entire process, I’m sure of it. When Mars joins Sagittarius on Saturday, your optimism and big picture vision will be set aflame which will help you navigate these experiences with worthiness and faith in your professional plan.
