Mercury, our planet of expression, entered cool Capricorn on Wednesday, Dec. 9th, 2015. While Mercury was in Sagittarius we had our fingers crossed and pushed on with blind faith and optimism. Now, Capricorn brings us right back down to Spaceship Earth and grants us with clear, focused ambition so that procrastinators (like myself) can launch plans and get shit done.
Mercury in Capricorn is simply realistic. The mind works in a very calculated and methodical way, making it easier to sort out what is relevant and essential. Capricorns are cardinal Earth signs, the doers of the Zodiac, which means they’re very result-driven…Caps need something tangible to show for their efforts. To them, time is money.
“Sometimes this earth bound mentality goes too far to the materialistic extreme. Capricorn is concerned with its place in the scheme of things. And that’s when the strong cardinal drives of Capricorn are fully focused on getting things, status, social position, etc. With this transit, you might brood more over your authority, especially if you don’t feel you’re being respected.” -Molly Hall
Capricorn’s bossy nature can come off as cold or harsh if other people don’t follow its lead. With mental Mercury there, we must try to be extra careful of inflicting criticism and condescension on those who help to light up our lives on a daily basis.
*Mercury will be in Capricorn until January 1st; it will turn retrograde in Aquarius on January 5th, and then move back into Capricorn on January 8th…where it will stay until February 13th. But, more on that later. xo
