Mercury will be going retrograde just in time for the holidays (November 23rd to December 13th). Hassles? You bet. When Mercury (which rules communication, computers, air travel and automobiles) moves backwards it always means delays, mix-ups and do-overs. But here's a silver lining: Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius could help you pick up on some things you missed.
Sagittarius does not like details. It's the big picture sign. Everything's rosy in Sag because the messy little unpleasantries are overlooked. So you get optimism but also mistakes. When Mercury goes backwards there is always the opportunity to find something you lost, talk to someone from the past and check things again.
Here's what you can do with Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius:
- Take those big plans/projects you developed when Mercury entered Sag (November 2nd) and double check them. Do they still hold water?
- Follow up on any glowing promises you made but haven't had time to keep.
- Check your list. Twice. (I know, I know...but this will be the perfect opportunity to make sure all your holiday boxes are ticked).
The golden rule is try and make plans before Mercury goes retrograde. Sagittarius is in charge of long distance travel so booking your flights before November 23rd is advisable. But life happens even when the astrology's not perfect. If you must make plans during the retrograde period, try to leave yourself plenty of wiggle room.
