Most signs cringe at any mention of “Mercury retrograde,” but not you, Virgo. Since mid-December, Mercury retrograde through the pleasure sector of your horoscope has taken you on a trippy adventure complete with plenty of nostalgia. The memories intensify when Mercury enters your origins zone on January 4, reminding you of home, family, and ghosts you thought were long gone. What are they trying to tell you? By January 8, you get the message. Once Mercury goes back into Capricorn on January 12, you come back down to earth.

That same day, you feel sentimental about your hopes and dreams for 2017 under the Cancer full moon. If you haven’t finished writing your New Year’s resolutions, do it then! By the Aquarius new moon on January 27, you’ll be ready to take specific actions towards making them a part of your everyday reality. While you shouldn’t be afraid to think long-term, you get the farthest by doing what you do best: details.
