This is a week when every syllable and character will count (and can be used against you). Save that snarky Tweet to drafts—or better yet, delete it altogether to destroy the evidence! Rehash, review, revamp, and revise—all the things that Mercury retrograde is good for. This alignment with Saturn can reveal some weak links in your game plan. Consider it a blessing in disguise, saving you from bigger, more costly missteps. Then, do what it takes to strengthen the structure of your mission before Mercury turns direct on December 22.
Your Weekly Horoscope Is Here. What's In The Stars For You?
This Wednesday, stern Saturn meets up with Mercury retrograde.
On Saturday, Mars goes from Libra to Scorpio.
The passionate planet decamps to sizzling Scorpio until January 26, making us long for more mystery, magic, and mojo as the year turns over. Mars is back in its wheelhouse, as it is a co-ruler of Scorpio (along with Pluto). Is the furnace cranked up too high or is it just everyone's libidos? This lusty seven-week phase will be quite the bodice-ripper—and with free-loving Jupiter riding shotgun, it's anyone's guess who will get us all hot and bothered this holiday season.
Mars in sultry Scorpio likes to get down and dirty, intimately acquainted and emotionally raw. Light a candle, burn the incense, and get ready for some epic, soul-baring, tantric-eye-gazing moments! Warning: This Mars cycle can make people WAY more possessive and jealous—and the hasty planet can cause us to react before we have all the facts. Don't be too secretive or you could arouse false suspicion. Add some trust along with the lust and you'll lock in those loyalty points.
In addition to being the zodiac's sex symbol, Scorpio is also the sign of shared resources and long-term investments. Fun can happen in the bedroom AND the boardroom for the coming seven weeks. Motivator Mars here will inspire our urge to merge, both for business and pleasure—and entrepreneurial Jupiter's partnership will reward savvy risk takers. But easy does it with those power plays! This is not the time to act capriciously or fail to run proper background checks. People may have hidden agendas—ones that involve an unquenchable thirst for domination. Lawyer up and put agreements in writing. Shop around that business plan or set up a crowdfunding campaign. Raise your financial IQ by learning the finer points of playing the market or making bank through real estate—another realm over which Scorpio reigns. Reuse, repurpose, and recycle, though! Savvy Scorpio energy loves the challenge of alchemizing lead into gold.
Intimidated by Mercury retrograde? This guide will get you through the last one of the year.
