In astrology, Mercury is responsible for intellect, the exchange of information, short trips, trade and all forms of communication, including writing and speaking.
Since it is now moving through Sagittarius, we may find ourselves fooled by our own philosophical beliefs and overly positive mindset. This period is not suitable for starting anything new that's based on new information.
Our speech is going to be causing us problems even in our everyday conversations, with our words possibly even fooling those around us or ourselves being duped by the information we're given or searching for.
Over the next 3 weeks, we need to prepare for delays in our premade plans, postponement of meetings and the loss of documents. Signing new contracts is not recommended.
Retrograde Mercury returns past events and people to our lives once again. It's possible that you'll run into an old love, old friends or once again face problems you haven't yet solved.
Up until December 23, all activities related to psychology and creativity are going to be successful. During the next few days, you can sign up for a new class, start therapy with a psychologist or devote yourself to creative work.
The retrograde period is a time for reevaluation throughout which we need to decide what to give up and what to accept, in order to become better. The retrograde phase gives us the opportunity to fix our past mistakes and clarify situations from the recent past.
