With the Sun in the zone of communications this is the best time of year to reach out to people who live far away or to travel to distant locations. It is also the best time to get your ideas and plans out there. Not only will people be far more open to persuasion but if you can get signatures on paper this week, you’ll be setting yourself up for a smoother start to 2017. (With Mercury in retrograde until the 8th January, very little will be accomplished until well into the month.) The only fly in the ointment is the full moon, which will be at its most powerful mid-week. Travel could turn out to be far from straight-forward and people less than easy to deal with.
