MERCURY RETROGRADE AND THE ZODIAC SIGNSIN ARIES: Expect to be frustrated and frazzled. Assertive, impulsive Aries wants to move ahead, and all of the energy is going backward. Watch what you say and how you say it. Pay attention to what people say to you; you might be pleasantly surprised.
IN TAURUS: Take time to formulate your thoughts. Taurus, an unhurried sign, slows down the mental processes. He also governs banking, so delay money matters. Review financial matters, and position yourself for growth.
IN GEMINI: Because Gemini rules communications, be prepared for miscommunications when Mercury is in this sign. Expect lots of phone calls or none, and lost or misplaced mail. You may not articulate clearly, and gossip abounds. Old friends may reconnect.
IN CANCER: Expect annoyances at home with baking, gardening, and household duties under domesticated Cancer. Complete repair projects that weren’t finished or done correctly.
IN LEO: Avoid speculative investments. It is not a good time to buy and sell or do any trading. Instead, analyze your investment portfolio. Use your know-how and advisory skills to help friends and associates.
IN VIRGO: Challenging situations arise, especially in the workplace. Expect product delays and equipment breakdowns,? as well as crankiness among coworkers under finicky, detail-oriented Virgo. Double-check your work before you call it finished.
IN LIBRA: Accept your physical attributes; do not have a makeover. Indecision reigns, so limit purchases—or risk returning them. Libra, representing beauty, grace, charm, and diplomacy, is out of balance. Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate.
IN SCORPIO: Emotions rule—not common sense—so beware. Avoid affairs of the heart. Passionate Scorpio is also secretive,and your secrets may seep out. Keep them in a diary.
IN SAGITTARIUS: It is not a time to travel, so reschedule or expect delays, lines, and lost directions. Instead, take care of local affairs. Patience and a sense of humor are needed.
IN CAPRICORN: Avoid buying, selling, or renting real estate under Capricorn, the sign that governs property matters. Expect problems with paperwork, packing, and movers. Reunite with family or vacation at home.
IN AQUARIUS: With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius, the sign that governs relationships, friendships are put at risk. Petty squabbles, misunderstandings, and miscommunications abound. Know who your friends are.
IN PISCES: Foggy thinking, daydreams, and escapism are the norm; day-to-day realities confound otherwise clear heads when Mercury, the planet that rules logic, is in Pisces, which governs illusion. Practice creative pursuits—writing, dancing, photography, film, or painting.
December is the 12th month of a Universal 7 year (2+1+4=7), therefore, it is a Universal energy of 1 (1+2+7=10, =1).
So a 1 Month vibrates these characteristics:
The 1 vibration month is active, and one should take the initiative. It is a month in which things get accomplished that we were on the brink of completion three months before but did not materialize. Situations arise this month that put the individual in the driver’s seat. New people, situations, and ideas abound. One should be aggressive and use this time span to make changes. Decisions should be based on independent, intellectual evaluations because help and encouragement may not be forthcoming. Overall, the focus should be on beginnings. Take action, and go for it!
November is the 11th month of the 7 Universal Year (2+1+4=7) and holds the vibration of 9 (1+1+7=9).
So a 9 Month vibrates these characteristics:
The 9 month provides the opportunity to complete projects, be charitable, and increase cultural activities. Personal ambitions are not favored, nor is commercial aggressiveness. Instead, this is the time to inspire, council, and support others. The projects that began eight months ago crop up to either conclude or be abandoned. Situations arise requiring a broad-minded attitude. Call on the sick, elderly, or needy and take a book, a tasty treat, or a listening ear. This is not the time to begin anything (you can dream it/visualized it). Group interactions, auditions, public appearances enhance your reorientation and attract rewards. Use this month to meet with notable or helpful people who have the contacts or abilities to further ambitions.
