Think twice before you RSVP “yes” to one too many invites, Virgo. On Wednesday, December 12, your high-flying ruler, mental Mercury, flits into Sagittarius and your domestic fourth house until January 4. During this annual cycle, you’re invited—and may possibly be forced—to power down and recharge your batteries. You’ve been going 200 mph lately, and frankly you might have so many balls in the air that you’ve lost count. Your meticulous sign doesn’t like to take on more than you can do a bang-up job on, and when you stretch past your limits, you stress yourself out and fray your nerves. Now you have a cosmic excuse to counter excessive offers with, “That sounds like fun, but I’m having a few people over to my place; why don’t you come HERE?” Then ask everyone to bring an appetizer or beverage. Play your cards right and you won’t have to get up off your Mid-Century couch! This is actually Mercury’s second trip through your home zone this year. If you started any redecorating projects during the first stretch (October 31 to December 1, which included a two-week retrograde), you can resume them now, bringing an even sharper eye to the project. Since the fourth house also rules women, this is a perfect opportunity to give priority to the important females in your life—mother figures, sisters, and close amigas. As the communicator of the zodiac, Mercury can help you sort out any conflicts and find mutually beneficial ways to move forward. With Mercury buzzing here, your nesting instincts will intensify. Think: soft, cozy fabrics, and a real (or flat-screen) fireplace to increase the feels. At the same time, call on your Virgo discernment to sort through clothes, books and just plain stuff, and decide what you could sell, donate or finally throw out. But don’t get so carried away that you toss a future treasure! Temper your enthusiasm with a “maybe” pile. And since the self-expressive Sun and Jupiter are also in Sagittarius, you can create a home environment that reflects the truest and most updated version of YOU!
