You can always tell when something’s changed. Call it instinct or a built-in “Spidey sense,” but when that silent alarm goes off, you know it’s best to head for the nearest exit. Things are about to take a downward turn, and you need to get out. This is what you’ll be feeling on December 13th when Mercury turns retrograde, and after distancing yourself from a situation, you may wonder if it was the right call. Things will appear to be the same, but wait until after the Sun/Neptune square on the 16th. That’s when you’ll see that you were right to act when you did.
