Happy full Moon & Mercury retrograde, sweet world

As December opens, we arrive at the beginning of what promises to be a potent Mercury retrograde holiday season. The energy is frenetic and things may be feeling chaotic or overwhelming; we yearn to stop and relax but our minds are racing to keep up with all the needs to be done. Breathe deep and do your best to grow flexible, as the winds of change are set to arrive. We have reached a major turning point in our evolution and there are still a few key ingredients to come.

A powerful super moon arrives on the 3rd in mercurial Gemini that creates a strong aspect with deceptive Neptune; new information arises, but getting to the bottom of things could be tricky. The oceans of the collective unconscious become murky now, so check the facts and proceed with caution. Guard against confusion and misunderstanding, acknowledging that things are not always what they seem; sort fact from fiction by looking for proof and check the fine print for inconsistencies in order to prevent disappointment down the line. Our logical faculties are muted here; listen to the more subtle guidance at play in your life and follow the signals and the signs that you are receiving.

Mercury stations retrograde on the full moon at the last degree of Sagittarius, signifying that big changes are in the offing. We may see shake-ups, wake-ups, and surprising developments in the community at large; issues regarding the global economy and environment, technological advancement, the hidden conduct of political and spiritual leaders, social injustice, earth movements, extreme weather, and prominent death and birth announcements could make headlines. Plagiarism censorship, secrecy, lies and rumors are possible; it may prove hard to learn the facts and some could be tempted to shoot the messenger.

Our day-to-day grows complicated as misunderstandings, delays, and frustration abound; avoid closing major deals or launching new projects, use extra precaution when traveling and leave the signing on the dotted line until after Mercury stations direct on the 22nd. The past may reappear for another go around and karmic situations could develop; question the people, places and things that you engage with, are they raising your vibration?
