If you’ve been feeling out-of-sorts lately, blame Mercury retrograde. Mercury, your ruling planet, has been retrograde since mid-December in your spooky eighth house of taboos, giving you lots of awkward situations to contend with over the holidays. When he moves into Sagittarius on January 4th, you’ll need to set some pretty solid boundaries in place if you want to keep your sanity intact.

Sagittarius is your partnership zone, and with Mercury retrograde there, people might start to ask for more than you’re willing to give. As long as you stand up for what’s yours, you’ll be fine, and even better still after Mercury direct on January 8. By January 12, Mercury’s entry into your intimacy zone shows you how to assert your individuality in ways that strengthen your relationships. How’s that for a start to 2017?

That same day, a Cancer full moon in your self-worth zone has you feeling yourself. Channel that into your New Year’s goals for wealth-building, and see your income soar. On January 27, you expand your empire with the new moon in Aquarius, using a plum publishing or media opportunity to your advantage.
