Mercury Retrograde: Nov. 16–Dec. 6

ARIES (March 21 – April 19) If you were really hoping to fly the coop this holiday season, think again, Aries. Home is where your heart is, and what’s most affordable. Just when you thought you’d be able to breathe because Venus is FINALLY going direct, but Mercury goes retrograde in your expansive ninth house. Translation: travel is off the table, but the stars have aligned to creative a perfect time to revisit some philosophical passion projects. If you were just getting started in a new area of study, but feel derailed by the celestial clusterfuck this past few weeks and/or months, it’s time to revisit full-swing.
