Mercury Retrograde December 3-22 in Sagittarius (Fire) and the Full Moon in Gemini (Air) December 3, 2017 will be a December to Remember. It's all about Balance. This may look like a lot…and honestly it is. I need to say, “Strap on your seatbelt”
But I prefer to give an explanation for why and what you should know. There are only certain areas effected by Mercury Retrograde and the Full Moon energy of emotion can bring the fire to the fuel for us to heal before the New Year arrives.
As an intuitionist I pick up the information that is important for us to know and how this energy and the planets affect us. It is our final month to bring closure to 2017 and clear out any nagging thoughts or situations that are unresolved. It is about gaining clarity and removing all the mental blocks and thought patterns to enter 2018 with a fresh new outlook.
This Mercury Retrograde in fire sign Sagittarius starts the same day as the Full Moon in Gemini. What does this mean for us?
The Month of December can be filled with miscommunication and lots of emotions. Breathe before speaking and always make sure you say what you mean but don’t say it mean. Full Moon in Gemini energy is having us express our feelings and emotions from confusion, delusion, deception and disappointment. Mercury also rules the signs of Gemini influencing these emotions. Hallmark Channel ratings will be a big hit this Month.
The planet of Mercury affects all of the following: intellect, intelligence, ability to think, gathering of information, communication while speaking and writing, Contracts, agreements, siblings, work and co-workers, and neighbors. It defines the thinking process and mental faculties.
The Sagittarius sign rules these areas: Religion, Law (dealings with attorneys and legal affairs), College, Higher Education, Brothers and Sister in laws, foreign travel (long journeys and air travel), vacations, teachers, and publishing. These can all be areas of strong concern. Law, Airlines and Educational systems are being highlighted to me with a strong energy.
Some believe Mercury Retrograde can be a challenging time but over the years I have discovered it is more of a saving grace and great teacher for our learning and expansion. It allows time to RE-think, RE-do, RE-evaluate, RE-lease in areas that need to be fixed.
Take extra care that all legal documents have been reviewed , double check emails before hitting the send button and use caution with your words to siblings, significant others and co-workers. Someone could take what you say and easily be affected.
Be aware of the pessimistic side for this energy will bring it forward. Keep your focus on being hopeful, and having a successful outcome of what ever you are facing.
Mercury will bring expansion to what ever you are focusing on. Are you focusing on your healing, releasing, success and prosperity, or travails, hardships and financial lack? Whatever thoughts are circling around in your mind, just know that the December Mercury Retrograde and Full Moon energy is like a direct dial into creating and expanding that focus.
NOTE: Mercury Retrograde can affect travel plans. It is best to double check all flight information and if changing flights make sure you have enough layover time between. If not it could bring delay throwing all of your connections off. Check in advance on all Hotels, car services and bank accounts for your travels. You will thank me later.
If you plan on purchasing anything with moving parts for a Holiday Gift such as: computers, drones, watches, or automobiles I suggest you do it by Monday 27th before the shadow energy of Mercury Retrograde starts or wait until December 29th. If not it could be a major disappointment.
REmember -To use this final Mercury Retrograde wisely,
RElease - What is not serving you before we enter 2018.
REdo - What in your life is showing up as a weak link to be fixed.
REevaluate - All avenues of your path and decisions.
REview - All emails, contracts, travels, business structure, intentions.
