something in the stars:

week of December 12th, 2016

Are you feeling extra witty today?  Quick thinking is in the stars this week with the full moon in the constellation of Gemini tomorrow.  Possibly contributing to a couple restless nights as your mind will be racing with new ideas and perspectives that you’ll want to share with others.  For a few days before and a few days after the full moon you will be fully charged with confidence in your communication abilities.  Expect enlightening moments and maybe a little TMI seeing as people are feeling extra talkative these days.  As with most full moons you will feel a bit anxious leading up to it and more relaxed after it passes. Secrets will be harder to keep but do your best!
And as swiftly as this sharp wit comes it will leave you without saying good bye.  This is because Mercury turns retrograde next Monday the 19th and your tongue will suddenly be tied.  People tend to dread Mercury retrograde, when the planet appears to move backward in the sky, so let’s prepare for it now. Mercury rules your intelligence, communication, travel and technology.  The retrograde phase might present itself when you have a confusing email exchange with another and neither of you are sympathetic to the conversation.  Or you might have one of those days (probably many) when you are running out the door and you can’t find your keys, phone or mind.  Your desire to throw your computer out the window will be greater than ever.
Basically everything appears more difficult, even the simplest tasks will be taxing so you should take advantage of your clear mind now.  Take care of all the important errands ASAP. Plan your upcoming travel, social gatherings, and intellectual projects to the minute so that everything will go as smoothly as possible during a time when things won’t go smoothly.

Coincidentally Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini and the full moon is currently in Gemini so you have an opportunity to be quick on your feet this week before you stumble a bit next week.  Don’t stress too much though… next week I’ll have tips on how to benefit from Mercury tripping you up.
