On December 4, Mercury -- the planet of talking and thinking -- heads into the open-minded territory of Sagittarius, the sign of big, bold ideas. This is when people tend to say what’s really on their mind, no holds barred. The propensity to put your foot in your mouth is only exacerbated by the fact that it’s holiday time. Eggnog tends to make loose lips even looser, so be careful not to sink any ships.
The upside of this influence is that you (and everyone around you) should be more open to novel ideas -- even ones that would ordinarily seem outrageous. The fiery energy is excellent for consciousness-expanding conversations that last all night.
You’re more drawn to people from foreign places, and you may even crave a bit of long-distance travel yourself. If you can’t get away, you’ll want to escape through a great book, an arty film, or as above – a deep conversation with the smartest person you know.
Your career can expand exponentially now, because you’ll be more open to connecting to people that can move you ahead. You’re so dynamic and quick-witted that everything feels possible.

The downside is that your ability to check yourself before you (verbally) wreck yourself is virtually non-existent. Even if you’re a completely diplomatic person who wouldn’t criticize a fly, blunt responses are possible. Take a deep breath before responding to your boss or other colleagues.
Rather than saying something cutting or insubordinate, slow yourself down physiologically, so you can more easily tone it down verbally. That’s how to get Mercury in Sag to work for you -- not against you.
