It’s official: Mercury — planet of cognitive function and communication — has stationed direct, and as of Dec. 12, it will cannonball back into free-spirited, explorative, and embellishing Sagittarius, unencumbered from its retrograde torment. Prepare for your thoughts to become clearer, your organizational skills to smooth out, and for conversations to unfold a lot more graciously. However, let’s not forget detail-oriented Mercury functions strangely in all-over-the-place Sagittarius, so let your December 10, 2018 weekly horoscope guide you through the next chapter of this story.
However, Mercury direct doesn’t mean that the irrational confusion has come to an end, especially when we’re coming away from a powerful conjunction between Mars — planet of aggression and instinct — and Neptune — planet of dreams and illusion. If you’re still carrying heavy emotional weight and feeling unsure of how to remedy your situation, hang in there. Listen to your heart during this time and trust that eventually, the right decision will form within you organically.
And that’s not all: As of Dec. 16, Venus — planet of romance and luxury — will form a sextile with boundary-setting and disciplinary Saturn. This will force you to face the issues in your current relationships and charge you with a desire for deep and meaningful love. It will also switch-on the business savvy part of your brain and help you formulate a plan for success in your field. Although the emotions may feel hazy, this transit will help you sort through it all for the better. And if you’re still feeling misunderstood, at least there will be a first quarter moon in sensitive, compassionate, and spiritually-inclined Pisces on Dec. 15 to help you take groundbreaking steps in your overall healing.
