Skip navigation! Story from Horoscopes. The finish line is in sight, stargazers: The final Mercury retrograde of , which began on November 16 , will come to an end next Thursday, December 6. Those of you with major holiday plans later this month can breathe a small sigh of relief that they won't be directly affected by Mercury's backspin, but the messenger planet has one more trick up its sleeve before it goes direct for good this month.
This weekend, Mercury's reverse motion will take it from rambunctious Sagittarius to sly Scorpio , setting off a serious change in tone for this retrograde's last week. As anyone who has ever interacted with Sags and Scorps already knows, these signs are, er, quite different, despite being right next to each other on the Wheel of the Zodiac. Where the former is outgoing and enthusiastic, the latter tends to be private and intensely thoughtful — it's fair to reason that the effect Mercury retrograde has on our lives can be pretty different depending on which sign it's visiting.
As astrologer Susan Miller writes on her site Astrology Zone , we need only look at Sagittarius and Scorpio's respective ruling elements to understand just how different the influence will feel to us. Up until this weekend, the current Mercury retrograde has been in fire sign Sagittarius, and when this planetary retrograde expresses itself through this volatile element, you can expect short tempers and overblown reactions to abound. The upshot of a fire sign hosting Mercury retrograde is that our passions and creative drives are lit up, too, so we stand a pretty good chance at finding an innovative solution to whatever problems come our way.
Or maybe it's just you, creating your own financial luck. Either way, more money is on the horizon -- and it's very promising! Don't worry about not being able to speak up the way you intend.
Sure, Mercury has been retrograde, but he'll turn direct in your sign on December 6. This will bring you internal mental clarity about important matters and decisions in your life. It will also bring you the ability to communicate information the way you truly intend rather than inadvertently sending others confusing mixed signals. You'll also have a green light to sign important contracts. Hold off until later in the month if possible, just to give Mercury a chance to fully wake up.
If you've been tied up in any legal battle, it might come to a close near December 22 thanks to a Full Moon in your 9th House of Legal Matters. Maybe you like shocking people out of their stupor.

Maybe you just like to entertain. Who knows why you do what you do? But keep one eye on your budget, OK? And make it a sharp eye, too. The piper might be expecting payment sooner than you think. Dance with care today, and keep one hand on your credit or debit card at all times. Being different is a good thing today. People are getting a kick out of your flair, not to mention your quirky sense of humor. Your curiosity is leading you here, there and everywhere. You're flexible and accepting, and that's wonderful.
source But that's not all, folks. This time, you might even be the agent of change. So put your thinking cap on, and turn that bright, inquisitive eye toward any part of your life or the world around you that could use a little revamping. Anything that isn't working can change for the better under your deft touch. So you're feeling uneasy. Maybe you're aware of an unusual energy at work around you. Perhaps you feel like burying your head in the sand today. Still, that's no reason to resign yourself to feeling strange or grumpy. You can find it within yourself to break out of your emotional bonds and dance with the spirit of the age.
It shouldn't be hard for you to get your heart around the feeling, because you follow your heart in most situations anyway.
Doing so could transform a challenging period into a blissful one. Your confidence builds today. Suddenly, you find you not only have the courage to govern others, you possess the inspiration to promote much-needed change. People are looking to you for guidance, so you may have to step into the spotlight whether you want to or not. Use this as a chance to make something positive happen. You have the ability to be a wise, gracious leader. It's also in you to be a really good, devoted and dependable friend. And really, could anyone possibly ask more of you than that?
You recognize the need for change in the world, and you sincerely want to help. At the same time, you're conscious of the importance of pulling in your resources and guarding them carefully. You're quite the paradox: First a cheapskate, then a philanthropist. You're likely to confuse almost everyone today while you figure things out. Maybe you're operating entirely without a plan, which is unusual for you. It's good you're so attuned to the details that you can make minor adjustments as needed. Mix conscience and class today. You're honorable, graceful and no one loves a good party more than you, but now it's time to make changes that really matter.
So forget celebrity fundraisers and awards ceremonies. The real quality is in the giving. Put that sharp mind of yours to work and come up with something truly innovative, something to benefit everyone. If you're not sure what that might be, pay attention to your heart. This is your core, and that's all that matters now. You're acting cold, distant and suspicious of anyone putting out a new vibe.
OK, so why now? Do you want to invite trouble? Are you trying to reinvent the wheel when some newer technology is making the world go around? As long as you're being so distrustful, you should navigate with utmost caution today. This means questioning your own basic assumptions, too.
If you're wrong about something that essential, you could be wasting a lot of time and good will. Now is the time for faith. Try to believe. With all your wheeling and dealing, you could sell the Brooklyn Bridge to five different people in just a few hours. But instead of always trying to make another few bucks, why not put all your horse-trading energy toward actually winning the race? OK, maybe you need to redefine what winning means.
Your talents will be noticed today, so wouldn't it be a good idea to attract praise instead of anger? Keep on developing your public-spirited side. The more you do for your community, the more you'll like it here. Change your normal perspective today by taking a progressive view of your work and relationships. How can you improve your connections with others?
Virgo Horoscope The sixth house rules employees and assistants, and full moons mark transitions. October 7 to 17 — Venus in your decan makes you more relaxed, loving and affectionate. Between Jupiter and this lunation, you can look forward to a bright financial opportunity coming your way. Positive traits: Amicable but bold, these natives have a justifier path and a great sense of morality.
How can you make more constructive contributions to projects? It won't hurt to try out a new way of looking at life.
You might treat a current obstacles as an interesting, manageable challenge. You're used to receiving both accomplishments and accolades, but don't expect either. It isn't about collecting trophies, though you wouldn't refuse any if they were offered. Forget about old school, new school, and too cool for school. None of that matters now.
Suddenly you get to be your electric, artistic self. You get to project your larger-than-life personality in unpredictable shadow puppets or light shows. Today there are no rules. That doesn't include your own rules, obviously, which will define and govern this whole explosion of you-ness. Just remember to be loyal to friends and family even if they don't quite follow you. Without their support, you'd never have this kind of freedom and, if you're lucky, this kind of applause.
Your devotion to your work and your loved ones knows no boundaries. When it comes to helping others, you can be as selfless as a saint. Even so, your loving attention might not be required today. What an opportunity! Don't waste time feeling upset that no one needs you. Your unique gifts will be needed. Meanwhile, relearn how to be an individual.
Delight in your own company; get lost in your very own brand of brilliance. If you make yourself laugh with enjoyable thoughts and fantasies, you're finding yourself again. You're a quick thinker, but your thoughts seem alien. Will anyone get your otherworldly logic? Not today.
If you want to get allies in your corner, you'll have to bring your ideas down to earth. Of course, things will shift and it won't matter, if you all get along. But for now, it does matter. If you're working on a group project, your coworkers want to know you're all on the same page. Similarly, your friends want to know you're still the same person they know and love. Try not to be too extreme in your approach. What's wrong with showing respect, anyway? Who says that good manners only conceal the wolves among the sheep?
If chivalry is just a nervous habit, you could do much worse. And you're so over that whole school-yard bully dynamic, anyway. Get beyond appearances today and show them that real wolves and real sheep have transcended their storybook roles. People have good and bad sides, and right now being decisive, loyal and, yes, polite will resolve a lot more problems than those behaviors create. In the end, that resolution is what brings real security.
It doesn't matter whether you're under pressure, stretched tight or at loose ends. You could be all revved up or as subdued as a whisper. Today will find you vague and moody. It'll be harder than usual to fake sincerity if you're not feeling it.
