Mercury turns direct – December 23, 2017 (01:52)
– 13 degrees Sagittarius
In the midst of bleak midwinter and the major Saturn/Capricorn theme of the week, it’s worth noting that communication planet Mercury has turned to direct motion. Mercury is back up to speed in Sagittarius, a sign in which Mercury can philosophize, put his/her foot in it, be loud & playful, think deeply or learn something new – take your pick.
More importantly, Mercury direct means it’s full steam ahead and an ideal time to sort out delayed plans, renegotiate deals, have that all-important conversation, get your computer/car/phone fixed, book a holiday or study course, buy big. Basically, anything that’s been on hold or not working since December 3rd when Mercury turned retrograde can now, theoretically, be fixed – hello Skype (that’s a personal reminder for me!)
Talk planet Mercury remains in Sagittarius until January 11, 2018 when it picks up the Capricorn theme that’s dominating now. Before then, however, it makes a lively planetary aspect to innovative Uranus in Aries on January 6, 2018, a stunning symbol of clever ideas, original thinking, exciting news.
But that’s leaping ahead, for now enjoy yourself and put right any wrongs of the last few weeks and start planning for the year ahead, if you haven’t already.
This weekend would be perfect to do just that, or to fly to the other side of the world, planes permitting (that one’s for Bristol Airport travellers as their flights went awol yesterday. Luck’s back on your side if you’re still trying to get away.)
Happy Mercury Direct 🙂
