When Mercury enters practical Capricorn, our thoughts come down to earth, our ideas are realistic, and communication becomes very clear. Mercury is the planet that rules our minds and influences the way we think and speak. Because Capricorn is one of the most conservative signs of the zodiac, Mercury’s transit here puts a methodical, rational spin on our thought processes and interactions.
While this may not seem like the most exciting time, Mercury in Capricorn is full of benefits! And the timing couldn’t be better: This transit always happens near the New Year, blessing us with grounded, goal-oriented energy to help us make and keep our resolutions.
