Sagittarius is associated with qualities like optimism, enthusiasm, and a love for exploration. When Mercury is in Sagittarius, individuals may exhibit a more expansive and open-minded approach to communication. They tend to value freedom of thought, intellectual curiosity, and may enjoy engaging in discussions that explore broader perspectives.

When Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius, there may be challenges in communication related to travel plans, education, and philosophical discussions. Misunderstandings or delays in these areas could be more prevalent during this period.


It's advisable to be cautious about making important decisions, signing contracts, or initiating major travel plans during Mercury retrograde. Instead, focus on reviewing and revising existing plans, being patient with communication hiccups, and allowing for flexibility in your endeavors.

Old jobs or ways of making money can come up for you to revise and make better or perhaps revist and make money etc. old passionate ideas or travel plans could arise also. These could be good to enjoy for the time, but it's nothing long lasting. Hold off on important decisions.
