The month begins with Mercury leaving exuberant Sagittarius for no-nonsense Capricorn on the first, giving us the sense that it is time to set our desires in stone. Not so quick. Mercury stations retrograde on December 13 and heads again into daydream-believing Sagittarius on the twenty third. This can be a likelihood to revisit our beliefs and the tales we inform ourselves about what’s true, correct, and simply. How do we all know what we expect we all know? Are we even conscious of what we do not know? Greatest to get our tales straight now earlier than we make investments concrete materials and power in tasks that are not viable.
Mercury’s dance between Sagittarius and Capricorn is a good time to refine our relationship between our sense of risk and pragmatism.

With Venus cruising by means of Scorpio and Sagittarius this month, we’ll be pulled between our wants for difficult truths and comforting tales.
