Next Week: Sagittarius New Moon & Mercury Goes Retrograde

On Tuesday, December 12, the energy of Moon and Sun will be fused in the sign of Sagittarius -New Moon in Sagittarius. New Moons are a time of growth. Sagittarius being the territory the New Moon is in, there is an emphasis on exploration, adventure, higher beliefs, philosophy and education. Mars, the planet of action and assertion, is also hardwired into this new moon, adding to the restlessness and impatience felt especially strongly by those with a strong emphasis on Gemini, Pisces, Virgo nd Sagittarius in their birth chart.

On Wednesday, December 13, Mercury will begin to travel in (apparently) backward motion until January 1, traveling over old ground in the sign of Capricorn. Mercury is symbolically traveling over ground where it has already been, so the question is, did you miss something the first time around? Look at issues with a new perspective. Capricorn territory is about duties, limits and boundaries. Time to reconsider, rethink, review old limitations and boundaries. Are they still relevant to you today?

New Moon in Sagittarius is ready to rumble, especially with impetuous Mars in the mix; Saturn strikes a more cautious, sedate approach. How to make the New Moon and Mercury Retrograde work together successfully? They can, especially if Sagittarius is willing to slow the pace a bit. Mercury cautions that if we act without a plan or purpose, we may be slowed down by things like a plane ticket mixup or lost keys or some other annoying detail. This is for a need that time to think things through. Mercury is in Capricorn, a cautious sign, so it can act to curb Sagittarius's tendency to shoot from the hip, consequences be damned.

We are already in the shadow of the retrograde, so things may have not gone exactly to plan since Thanksgiving. And once Mercury goes direct on January 1, it willl take til January 20 for things to totally normalize. You can easily get the most from this Mercury retrograde energy by slowing down and thinking things through and taking lost keys or missed appointments as signs that you need to slow down or stop.

Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn may find a need to recalibrate regarding relationships. Have you missed something? You will get a new perspective.

Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius Are known for being fixed in their actions and opinions. This may give those signs an opportunity to review their philosophy and opinions to see if they work for the person they have become.

Although you may be anxious to get going and exploring, take time for yourself. You will do the best for yourself if you focus, not on initiating new projects, but on reviewing and editing things that are already underway.
