You remember breathing a sigh of relief when you escaped that fix you were in. It was a close call and knowing your love for penitence, you probably thanked your lucky stars and swore you’d never make a mistake like that again. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like you’ll get off scot-free as retrograde Mercury square Neptune on December 27th shows. Retrogrades often bring a repeat performance or return to a situation you just freed yourself from. But this doesn’t have to be ominous if you do what should have been done in the first place. Not only will this bring deliverance, it also promises redemption.
