Ready or not …. Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius here we come

The last Mercury Retrograde of 2018 will be in effect from November 16 – December 6, 2018 and center around the sign that has recently come into the spotlight—Sagittarius.

While a new phase of shooting our arrows of possibility has just begun with Jupiter’s entrance into Sagittarius, a call comes to reassess the plan. It’s time to potentially go BACK to something of the past in order to give it new life.

It’s not all bad, though, because new beginnings are popping up with other major planetary turns happening alongside Mercury’s.

With Venus going direct ( on the EXACT same day that Mercury goes retrograde!) something new is beginning to bloom in your life. The only caveat is that it comes along with a necessity to go back. It’s time to take care of some unsettled business and ponder what’s possible and what’s not.  New chapters of opportunity are around for the taking but we’ve got to stop for a few to see what’s what. There is one other very important piece of this story….

The Moon’s Nodes are now shifting into Cancer and Capricorn (exact on November 15th) creating entirely new cycles of activation for all of us. Themes beginning to crop up now could likely be a major part of the next 2 years of your life. New directions are calling—but they will need a twist of the past in order to fully ignite.

Expect some delay in your new initiatives and a need to be still for a bit.

We don’t roll our eyes at Mercury retrogrades for nothing … nobody likes to wait or be back-tracked! Despite all the negative feelings,  I think this period is going to really help us reevaluate where we are about to take ourselves next. The year of 2018 has been filled with a lot of change and emotional energy.

It’s time to move out of that and get some new perspective into where 2019 will take us.

Retrogrades like to take us back in time —in addition to helping us reconnect with people of the past. Maybe someone of the past needs to resurface to help you see where to go next. Or maybe you need to close out some unfinished business. Whatever the case, new chances are going to start popping up that will help us re-work things. A new kind of reassessment comes into play to help us refine what needs to happen next.

Arrows of possibility will be all around in the coming year. However, for the moment. we’ve got to let Mercury have his way and let some of those arrows take a few detours.

My biggest piece of advice is to get whatever you need to done —prior to November 16th and don’t begin again till December 6th.

Given that we’re approaching the holiday season, it’s highly probable that these detours, reassessments and new perspectives, will likely play out with family. It’s also possible that the energy plays out with people other than family that you’re around during this period.

It’s also a good idea to hold off on your holiday shopping till after Dec 6th …. because you might change your mind on whether it’s the right gift or not.

The plans in our minds are not always the ones that the universe has in store. A necessary moment arrives to steer off course in order to get to where we ultimately need to go.
