19 / 12 / 2016

Its baaack; the dreaded Mercury retrograde.  And it will last until the beginning of January.  Except this time you shouldn’t fret about it.  There is no better time for it than during the holiday season and at the end of a tumultuous 2016.  Instead of putting all your energy into accomplishing a task, relax and be reflective.  Evaluate the path you took and think about where you’d like to go next.  Take note of all the obstacles you overcame and be proud you made it through what many think was a rotten year.  There won’t be much forward momentum in our lives right now, so just be present and enjoy time with family and friends. 
As for technology, well it might fail you, but what better time to turn off your computer and put your phone down. Communication might break down so do your best to listen and speak empathetically.  Sarcasm doesn’t translate well in text message so save your witticisms for another time.  Travel is also affected and you could be delayed, so you might as well have back up plans if you aren’t where you intended to be. Essentially, in order to get through this time happily, be spontaneous, be creative and enjoy the scenery on your detour. Once Mercury moves forward again on January 8th, you as well can move forward in a more productive manner. 

So enough about Mercury Retrograde; on Wednesday the sun leaves carefree Sagittarius and enters loyal Capricorn.  Each year during this time we slowly switch from craving festivities to craving familiarity.  Capricorns are known for being family oriented, sensible & determined.  So after Wednesday spend some quality time with loved ones, take care of those around you and re-energize yourself so you can hit the ground running in the New Year.  And most importantly Venus, the planet of love, is still in friendly Aquarius so you shouldn’t have any troubles putting a little love in your heart this holiday season.
