Back to work after a holiday weekend has never felt more chaotic. The full moon in Gemini on the 27th is one of the most confusing and overwhelming days of the year. Luckily things do a total 180 over the weekend as Mercury leaves freewheeling Sagittarius for practical Capricorn on the 1st, and then connects with stabilizing Saturn on the 2nd. December is another whirlwind of a month, but having one or two top priorities makes clearing the fog much more manageable.
