Mercury goes Retrograde on December 3, 2017 too.

Mercury rules Gemini, which puts Mercury Retrograde at the forefront this week.

Mercury (now in shadow) meets Saturn in Sagittarius in alignment with the Galactic Center of the Milky Way Galaxy on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 at 27⁰27” degrees. This also occurs in compliment to Uranus in Aries. With this activity over the Galactic Center, you know there are going to be big shifts happening. Our perspective on the world is set to change.

This puts into question what we believe about reality. During this Mercury Retrograde cycle we will be going through a transformation, a change of perspective, a change of mind. Our aims and ambitions are likely to change. This begins an evolutionary time of inner exploration and when our beliefs and perception of reality will change significantly. What we want to achieve will change.

With this Mercury Retrograde shift also think, “World Stage.” What's really happening in the world, even the stuff you don't want to think about? What does the whole, larger perspective of what's happening in the world reveal about the mentality and consciousness of humanity? How can you think, and what can you do, differently to create a change in reality?

Mercury retrograde is the Trickster. Are you ready for communication errors and technical issues?

Issues with flights and travel are likely to be with us this month during the busiest travel season. We are likely to see problems relating to airports and other forms of long distance travel.

In conversations, if you are having a hard time finding the right words, it’s better to wait, to pause and reflect before making globalized statements. Judgmental remarks could come back to you, and force a tough lesson and a change in your approach. It’s better to keep some opinions to yourself.

Net Neutrality is an important social issue that is to be decided upon December 14, 2017, during Mercury Retrograde. Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius (global information exchange), with Saturn (limitations, restrictions).... makes sense.

This is a good time to reorganize your thinking on longer term plans and goals. Look back on 2017 and make note of mistakes that taught you important lessons so you can move forward in 2018 smarter and better able to take care of things with fewer errors and better results.

Mercury retrograde signifies going back over what was done before.

  • Do you have unfinished work? 
  • Are you a procrastinator? 
  • Do you need to change your mindset and rethink your progress? 
  • Do you have long term ideas that can't get lifted off the ground or seem like it will take too much time and energy to get there? 
  • Are your aims, hopes and wishes in life changing?

Prepare yourself during this period. Get rid of your doubts and time wasters over the next few week so you can reestablish right thinking to achieve your aims. Find ways to reignite your purpose and passion for life. Get curious about your options, and consider how to set inspiring yet realistic goals for your future.

Super important: This is an excellent time to explore ideas on how restructure your life so you can better achieve your aims. Think, "How can I change this? How would this work better if I did it this way?"

If you are an unfocused person and let things slide, this period can be a kick in the pants, reminding you how important it is to get yourself on track or else reap the natural karma of becoming overburdened by a lack of momentum and the passing of time.

If you feel like you don't know enough of what you need to know, this is the time to gain clarity by writing things down and getting organized. Forgetfulness is likely, so try to create a few key organizing points to gather important information to return to later, and repeatedly.

The Mercury retrograde cycle will bring a change in perspective on philosophy, global relations, global exchanges, and our use of time and money. We can also expect more secrets to be revealed through the media, and backtracking on what was said. Information revealed could be shocking, rock foundations or change the collective ideology on society’s power structures. Trust issues are likely, and questions become more encompassing. Hearsay and gossip are not admissible as evidence, and rumors will be met with skepticism.

It's a good time to reconsider what you believe to be true. Do your beliefs hold much weight or are your explanations flimsy and hollow when you're asked about them? Can your big ideas be backed up with logic, concrete information, proof or specifics?

A strong change in identity is likely, as greater self awareness can be brought about as a natural reaction or rebellion to various social, relationship and societal pressures that push ideas of how things should be.

Try not to sign any important documents or make long term commitments during Mercury Retrograde, of course. This is especially important in business and long distance trade matters. We could see too many lost, late and last minute packages for the holidays.

Mercury officially goes Retrograde in Sagittarius on December 3, 2017 at 2:35 am ET. Mercury will meet with Saturn again in Sagittarius on December 6, 2017.

It's generally considered to be a time to slow down a bit. However, if you feel too slowed down, if you're procrastinating, or feel like you don't have enough steam, don't worry too much about it. Consider it time to reflect more. Do take notes of your thoughts and ideas so you can look at them more closely instead of forgetting about them. You never know where a gem of wisdom will come from. An especially important point is to seriously consider various ideas you may have about restructuring your life so you can achieve your goals in the future. 

***Mercury Retrograde ends on December 22, 2017 at 8:51 pm ET and will be out of Shadow on January 10, 2018.
