(August 23–September 23)
Planetary ruler Mercury's retrograde in Sagittarius on November 16 squares your natal Sun and prompts reconsideration of recent communicative reformations. Remember how you vowed to hold your tongue at Thanksgiving dinner, even under duress from half-sauced relatives? Review that promise for likelihood of success and realize that all the logic, reason, proofs, and evidence in the world won't dissuade an ideological fanatic from believing an outright lie is the gospel truth. Though you normally treasure family tradition, a nontraditional, extended, family-free vacation might be better for your emotional health and spiritual equanimity than turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and indigestible family feuds.
