By Denise Guzzardo
The sun leaves vivacious Sagittarius and enters down to Earth Capricorn on December 22. We will be more focused on the foundations of our future as well as removing mundane tasks out of the way during this time frame. Mercury retrograde is officially in effect now until January 8. You all know the drill by now. Be cautious driving, check and double check messages, back up your computer, and tend to maintenance with vehicles and appliances. However, it’s not always as bad as its sounds. If you heed the warnings, everything will work out to your advantage. Keep your cool, words that fly out of our mouths during a time like this can not be retracted. Be mindful of what you bring voice to.
