Mercury Rx enters Sagittarius

While Mercury began its retrograde on December 13th in the sign of Capricorn, retrograde Mercury returns to the sign of Sagittarius on December 23rd, 2023.

Mercury is in Sagittarius from December 23, 2023-January 13, 2024.

Mercury’s retrograde cycle, lasting from December 13th to January 1st, is the reason for Mercury returning to Sagittarius so soon after leaving the sign. The retrograde began in Capricorn, but with reverse motion, Mercury now dips back into Sagittarius.

While Mercury is retrograde in the sign of Sagittarius, we might review our beliefs, ideas, interests, educational or legal matters, and transportation options.

Mercury is retrograde from December 13th, 2023, at 8° Capricorn 29′, until January 1st, 2024, at 22° Sagittarius 11′.

With Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius:

Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius implies communication snafus revolving around communication and transportation, in particular. While Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius, we look at past decisions and ideas from a new, possibly enlightened perspective. Reconsidering a long-term dream or vision of our future is a potential.

It’s a strong period for returning to an old study, writing project, or personal interest. It can be a time of scattered thoughts and mental disarray, however. The tactlessness of Mercury in Sagittarius magnifies, making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of topics and wording. The chances of misinterpretation, slipshod thinking or work, and missing deadlines or appointments run higher than usual, even more so than with other Mercury retrograde cycles.

We may be returning to past projects and refining or tweaking them. We can find usefulness in old or past ideas and recycle them in new ways. We might consider renewing old studies, topics, projects, or interests and returning to places or diversions of the past.

Retrograde Mercury aligns with Mars in Sagittarius on December 27th, and conversations can be loaded.
