Mercury Retrograde and The End of 2016

We have Christmas, New Year and sailing into 2017 with Mercury retrograde in it's backward dance In Capricorn and back into the end of Sagittarius. We are being asked to pace ourselves right when Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus can have us wanting to push forward. What an interesting time! With Mercury going direct on the Galactic Center on January 8, we have an extended time to make our affirmations... of course, any time is great for making affirmations, but, especially the end of December and through to mid January. :)
