Mercury entered Sagittarius on October 30th, and went retrograde on November 6th. Now that it is direct it is retracing it’s steps and on December 10th it re-enters Sagittarius.
Mercury is the small talk god. It represents all the things we are curious about. In Sagittarius the curious mind is challenged with the possibility of wisdom. It’s two ends of one dilemma – Mercury (as the ruler of Gemini) and Sagittarius its opposite. Some of us prefer to see the forest; others would rather deal with each tree. Today and tomorrow will complete the Mercury retrograde cycle just past as Mercury leaves it’s shadow.
