Happy New Year - Mercury Goes Direct
Welcome, 2024! The first day of the year brings a feeling of renewal and taking the measure of our times. As we start this new year, Mercury goes direct on New Year's Day, accenting the air of new possibilities. With all the dramatic events happening worldwide, there is a welcome note of optimism as Mercury gets out of retrograde on New Year's Day.
In this blog, I will focus on Mercury going direct with important dates to consider and resume my regular bi-weekly astrological forecasting in mid-January.
Mercury has been in retrograde for the last three weeks and goes direct on January 1st. As Mercury marched backward (or as it appears in the sky) through the December holidays, you might have noticed numerous schedule changes and difficulties in getting clear on planning. If so, things may start to manifest more clearly in the coming days - All in good time for the start of the New Year.
Now that Mercury is in Direct motion, it will take some time to get back to where it was before it went retrograde. This period is called the Shadow Time and will go until January 21st. During this time, you may still be revisiting conversations and getting clear on plans that were coming up since December 12th (the day Mercury went retrograde) and after.
Suppose you have a significant decision in the works. In that case, I recommend allowing more time to process your decision mentally and waiting until Mercury leaves its shadow on the 21st to decide fully.
The Next Mercury Retrograde is April 1st - No Fools!
