You may want to keep opinions to yourself this week, or you could wind up in the doghouse for the rest of the Holiday season. Retrograde Mercury back in Sagittarius can’t help but encourage your penchant for malaprops, extravagant claims, and telling other people’s stories as if they really happened to you. Mercury in Sagittarius believes that the truth never sounds as good as when you tell it. Now all of this may be meant as innocent fun except that the messenger planet will be squaring Neptune and then conjoining Mars on December 27th. This could land you in hot water if you’re not careful.
