Profession goals

Mercury wants us to slow things down, see if we are on track with our plans, and find ways to increase productivity. The transit is a time to make adjustments and think about how to improve to make these moves when the planet moves direct in January, especially with Saturn currently directing as well.

Learning and expanding knowledge

When a planet is retrograde, it can present us with a great opportunity to review and relearn anything that still raises doubts in us. With this transit focusing on career, we could learn something new about our job or start a new semester to increase our skills. For those in school, a crossover can be a good way to refresh their knowledge about a subject before starting a new semester.
