Mercury goes retrograde in Sagitarius on Thursday & there's a Solar eclipse with the New Moon in Sag on the same day. Is there anyone who's a better astrologer than me able to explain what it all means, apart from the normal communication challenges a Merc retrograde brings?

I expect serious foot in mouth disease during such a strong Sagitarian influence. As a Sag, apparently I'll be more introspective than normal. I imagine the Xmas season may have more than it's normal share of misunderstandings and stuff ups.

Anything else? Any way we can use this to an advantage or do we just practice patience until January?
