Mental Mercury in Cool Capricorn

Get serious about making your dreams come true!

Get ready to do some serious thinking! Communication planet Mercury moves out of optimistic Sagittarius and into earthy Capricorn on December 16, 2014. This will set a practical tone for the next few weeks, so maybe that will help us keep our New Year's resolutions!

While mental Mercury is in cool Capricorn, we'll feel disciplined and determined to work hard at plans that formerly were just dreams. It's the perfect time to set specific goals, outline the steps you'll need to take to achieve them and find solutions for your finances.

Organization is a key idea here, one that enables bits of data to be cobbled together into larger patterns. This intellectual structuring helps transform concepts into reality.

The Mercury in Capricorn perspective is acutely aware of hierarchies. This means that conversation may become more about who's on top than a real sharing of information. Sensitivity to how communication and control are linked is strong during this period. Casual remarks are not associated with this placement. Information, rather, must have a purpose.

Building is a real positive here, along with a more mature view of reality. However, there can also be a pessimism born of Capricorn's potentially narrow focus. Abstraction can be lost in Cap's need for clear, sharp and practical information. It's important, then, to not lose sight of the value of idle thinking and speculation during this otherwise goal-oriented time.

Golf heroes Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus were both born with Mercury in Capricorn, as were singers Michael Stipe, Elvis Presley, Annie Lennox, Peter Gabriel, Natalie Cole and Dolly Parton. Mercury was in Capricorn for activists Angela Davis, Jane Fonda, Germaine Greer and Vanessa Redgrave, conservatives Ronald Reagan and Dr. Laura Schlessinger, actors Samuel L. Jackson, Mel Gibson, Bridget Fonda, Nicolas Cage and Mary Tyler Moore, the funny Ellen Degeneres, funnier Boris Yeltsin and funniest Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh.

Now that the Sun is in Sagittarius, it's the final month of fall and and time to start preparing for winter! But first comes Thanksgiving. Sagittarius rules travel and religion, and represents freedom. It is highly appropriate Thanksgiving falls during Sagittarius Sun time, as it celebrates the culmination of the ultimate travel to unknown territory by people seeking freedom -- freedom to fulfill their religious beliefs without fear of retribution. And, of course, it's a time of feasting, giving thanks and gathering with friends and family. ... continued »
