Mercury’s Transit of Capricorn
Mercury enters Capricorn on December 28th at 11:54 PM EST. Communication is structured and formalized – traditional ideas carry weight and messages from childhood/parents can dominate. This brief transit can help you organize your goals for 2020 when you focus on what has the greatest chance of success (as long as you don’t get caught up in outdated rules from the past).
This is also a prime transit for verbal and written commitments. Mercury in Capricorn puts responsibilities into words and nothing is expressed lightly. So while it may not be the most effusive energy, what is communicated is guaranteed to be meaningful. Excellent for structured statements where every word has impact.
Note that Mercury will be part of the line up on January 12th, joining Saturn, Pluto, the Sun and Ceres as they conjoin at 21-22 deg Capricorn. Mercury is also part of the January 10th Full Moon eclipse (20 deg Cancer). Altogether, this suggests a message/messenger with massive impact from Jan 10th-12th.
Mercury exits Capricorn for Aquarius on January 16th.
Here are the aspects Mercury will make:
