OK, I’m going to lay it on you Scorpio. Mercury retrogrades on Monday in your house of communication. Of all the signs of the zodiac, you need to watch what you verbalize and put in writing more so than any of the others.
This ain’t gonna be easy, because two days later the mighty Sun (which represents you) enters ….the house of communication! So you although you are really going to be interested in voicing your opinion, it could be like walking through a mine field. People may be way too touchy and misconstrue what you say.
Needless to say, the next few weeks are not the time to rant or troll on social media. Nor should you e-mail or text your pals “private” gossip about others, as your remarks could be endlessly forwarded, perhaps to just the party you were gossiping about.
Making matters even more interesting is that assertive Mars enters your house of romance on Monday just as Mercury starts its backwards spin. Soooo…holding meaningful conversations a with a lover could test your patience as old issues or dramas arise, and now you need to be a diplomat instead of the regular old you.
The house where Mars is headed also governs children, so talks with them could become highly charged. The same holds true for discussing a potential pregnancy with a lover.
But lest you think that nothing but doom and gloom awaits, the next month could really be spectacular. Hashing out old issues with a lover could be just the thing you need to do before you take the next step, such as getting engaged or starting a family.
This is also an excellent time to develop your skills, so if you want to sign up for spring classes at the local college or trade school, carpe diem. Showing off your talents is also favored, as long as you’re absolutely sure that everything that represents you sparkles: your resume, portfolio, manuscript, blog, brochure, website and the like. The Mercury retrograde period is just the ticket for reviewing all of these for typos and other things that might need to be fixed.
Despite the fact that Saturday is Christmas Eve, a terrific Saturn-Uranus aspect shines its light on your career. You could start to feel this as early as Thursday. An opportunity to earn more, land better assignments, streamline your protocols or rebrand yourself is there–keep your eyes open for it.
