Mercury's Transit of Capricorn

Mercury enters Capricorn on January 4th. Words
and thoughts become focused and serious. Messages are delivered
with authority. Creativity is less important now than saying it and
then doing exactly what you said – the verbal or written
commitment. Therefore, the range of ideas is much narrower, but
this allows you to identify what has solid potential.

Happening one day before the
January 5th eclipse in Capricorn,
Mercury’s ingress can
signal a formal announcement, serious message or firm decision
that’s related to this eclipse. Capricorn makes it real, so
Mercury’s messages (or messengers) will have more weight than
usual. Trust that what you see and hear is real, even if appears
restrictive or judgemental.

On the plus side, this transit is excellent for making plans,
putting goals into words and verbalizing boundaries.

Here are the aspects Mercury in Capricorn will make:

  • Jan 8th: square Mars in Aries (4 deg)

  • Jan 13th: conjunct Saturn (12 deg)

  • Jan 18th: conjunct Pluto (21 deg)

  • Jan 20th: trine Juno in Taurus (23 deg)

  • Jan 22nd: conjunct the South Node (26 deg)

  • Jan 22nd: square Pallas in Libra (26 deg)

  • Jan 23rd: square Uranus in Aries (28 deg)

  • Jan 23rd: sextile Chiron in Pisces (28 deg)

  • Jan 23rd: sextile Ceres in Scorpio (29 deg)

  • Jan 24th: Aquarius ingress
