There's been a lot of talk about Mercury Retrograde and it's coming to town on December 3rd of this month! There's a lot of other celestial events taking shape this month as well that impact how you communicate and feel about relationships. Mercury isn't the only planet in retrograde this month. In August, Uranus went into its nearly 155-day retrograde cycle in the sign of Aries which will last until January 2018.

RELATED: How Mercury In Retrograde REALLY Affects Each Zodiac Sign (Because YES, It's BAAACK)

Uranus rules the 11th house and the zodiac sign, Aquarius. The energy associated with this sign is to break barriers to change. He LOVES to challenge what's expected and even tests tradition not to see if it's something that we should value and cherish. The energy's purpose is to see if our beliefs associated with practice needs to be debunked.

During a retrograde season, Uranus has been blamed for all the political upheaval we've seen over the course of the past year, and many astrologers claim this will only get worse as the energy closes itself out. 

When Mercury goes retrograde, it adds to the intensity of miscommunication, particularly with tech. If you're planning to upgrade your cell phone, for example, back up those important files and memories!

This is also a time to check your perspective, double check your facts, and don't say things without thinking them through — especially with family and figures who your family deems to be in authority roles (Grandma, anyone?).

Here's what's happening in the universe that affects your zodiac sign and what you need to know. Changes for all signs come early December with the Sun in independent thinker, Sagittarius — the Ninth House. The Moon almost completes a full Lunar cycle, too.

Your horoscope improves on December 22nd. Mercury will finally go station direct again, so you can breathe a sigh of relief when everyone is out of school or on holiday vacation.  Here's a rundown of planetary changes for December 2017:

These apply to everyone, however, if one of the planets is your planetary ruler it will have more of an effect on you.)

December 1st Venus enters Sagittarius.

That relationship you wondered about will be on your mind more than before. Home life and love will be up for consideration. Some zodiac signs may decide it's time to commit, others may decide they want to move in together. 

December 2nd Jupiter trines squares Neptune.

Whenever these two planets are paired together, energy can become a little wonky. Neptune is a dreamer and can make things unclear. Illusions about your circumstances may become more obvious to you. This may not be a good time for big changes but definitely, gather your information.

December 3rd: Mercury Retrograde begins.

Sure, we know that there will be challenges in communication. You can use this time to be proactive. Texting that goes negative doesn't have to continue. You can put the phone down and wait for a better time to respond. Before hitting 'send' on your emails, be sure that you've got the right recipient on there. Mail packages earlier than later so you avoid late delivery. Be proactive in your communication and this will help volumes. Not to mention, you'll look so good showing off your best communicator skills.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


POWER CRYSTAL: Citrine or garnet

Aries, you are so direct that sometimes people aren't sure what to do with you. You may come across as ingenuine, no matter how clear you try to be. That's nothing on you, Ram. It has to do with how others read you.

Sex & Love: Your love life may take an independent turn. You could be seeking new ways to spread your wings and feel free again. Thinking about how to balance the best of both worlds in sex and love will be on the top of your To Do list.

Home: You could be finding home life less attractive and seek to do things outside of the home. Perhaps a trip far away or some late night shopping sprees. Whatever you're up to, you'll likely fall into your bed late each night in the next few weeks. 

Career: You work harder, but for the first time in months, you might want to work...less. Not that you're underperforming, but the winter month may have you thinking about fun more than work. 

Past/Present/Future 3 Tarot card spread: Upright, Magician/Upright, Eight of Wands/Reversed, Three of Cups

In the past, you've developed the skills you need to impress others and do what you need to do in an autopilot fashion. Present, there are still delays in what you think should happen for you in your life, but these things are improving, you just haven't had the chance to see it yet. Future, the more you try to get others to do what you want, the less cooperation you'll receive. Let others do what they think they need to do and find ways to adapt to the situation.

Home: New projects will lose their shine. You'll be putting those things off until after the new year begins so you can focus on time with family and friends. You might not even notice if things are a little less organized right now. 

Career: You will be ramping up productivity more to try to move things in a more orderly direction. Time management and observing how things work to improve outcome will be important. You might be looking at ways to save time so you can have more for fun.

Past/Present/Future 3 Tarot card spread: Upright, Queen of Cups/Reversed, Eight of Cups/Reversed, Eight of Wands

In the future, it's best for you to let others prove their desires by how they treat you instead of asking for things that aren't in their capabilities at this time.
