The week begins with Mercury inverting in the sign of Sagittarius. This retrograde is going to last until the 22nd December. Now obviously Mercury governs communication, distribution, transport, travel, technology, text messages, emails and so on. And all these areas are potentially ones which can be affected by this. However it is important to see that Mercury’s retrograde can also be an opportunity to attend to any part of our situation which is not running as smoothly as we would like. So a chance to work hard on improving things. What we can’t change is that the retrograde is going to coincide with the run-up to Christmas, a busy time and one when many of us will be sending Christmas cards and gifts through the post, or making travel plans, or actually heading off to see friends or relatives or enjoying some winter sun or snow. So to minimise the potential for glitches around these, close attention is needed to all these areas.
Furthermore this week begins with the Full Moon in Gemini , which squares to Neptune planet of dreams but also of confusion, located in Pisces . For the first half of this week but also for the next two weeks, this is going to create a heightened sensitivity around all communications, and the potential for distortion. Along with Mercury’s retrograde, and also Venus squaring with Neptune by the end of this week, an enormous amount of effort is going to be required by us all to maintain a sense of clarity in all our human interactions.
Fortunately the first half of this week does see Mercury still combining with Saturn. Now, this may still have some implications especially if something legalistic or contractual comes under greater scrutiny, and also if we are trying to buy and sell anything but it is absolutely vital to read the small print.
Saturday also sees Mars move into one of its two home zones, of Scorpio. Clearly Mars here really comes to life and is very passionate, and will provide an enormous amount of extra drive. This can also add a greater desire to get beyond the more superficial layers of life and to embrace a deeper meaning, and particularly in close relationships. Greater sensuality is possible in the following six weeks too. For more information or to watch your zodiac sign Weekly Video forecast or join me at Free Daily, Weekly and Monthly Horoscopes
