Mercury in Capricorn

Mercury the planet ruling over the intellect and communications will be in the sign of Capricorn  starting today December 9 until January 1.

Capricorn being an earth sign gives us the practical methods to reach a goal. With the Sun in Sagittarius, we might be imbued with a fiery vision at the moment but without realistic planning our dreams can remain distant fantasies.

This is an appeal to use the resources we have at our disposal in a realistic fashion. Delineating, planning and focusing on concrete steps to make something happen.

Mercury in Capricorn has a no non-sense approach and can be business oriented. Because Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, we have to be aware of a tendency towards rigidity in our thinking. Being realistic without being pessimistic and thinking critically without becoming a harsh critic.

Use this month to prepare and plan for the year ahead and what you would like to achieve in 2016.
