Mercury in Capricorn on DrStandley.com

Mercury moves back into Capricorn on January 12, 2017 until February 7, 2017 after having spent some time Retrograde, which is over now. Mercury typically remains in a Sun Sign for approximately 2 to 3 weeks (15 to 21 days) but it can remain in a Sun Sign as much as 60 days depending on its motion, meaning if it involves a Retrograde (Rx) or not. Mercury goes through a Retrograde status three times per year giving us 3 times a year to get our maintenance, scheduling and organizational act together. In this case Mercury 'will'have a Retrograde status play itself out during this time.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Capricorn, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Capricorn or it will be in the sign of Capricorn. This means there are only three possibilities that a Capricorn Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Sagittarius, Mercury in Capricorn or Mercury in Aquarius. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Cancer) or the four signs on each side Cancer (Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio) and (Gemini, Taurus, Aries, Pisces). Cool huh?

Mercury rule the mind and Capricorn rules business and career, so this is where the mind will be with Mercury in Capricorn. In other words, this mental energy is all business and no monkey business. Capricorn is all about moving up the ladder and attaining its intended goals. This energy knows no other direction except UP. How did the Billy goat get to the top of the mountain? Step by step, he climbed there!

This energy is great for managing organizations, managing a business, attaining status and for extended concentration that needs time on its side. This concentration is due to Mercury ruling the mind and the extension of the mind because Capricorn rules longevity and time with a rock solid base. Step by step is the methodical approach with this transit. This makes for a very patient and disciplined mind.

The placement of Mercury in Capricorn does not like trivial conversation. In fact, it is better to say nothing with this placement unless you have something worthy to contribute or something that has practical and applicable value. Remember the Capricorn motto, "I use therefore I am." It could also be, "Use it or lose it." Capricorn has no use for anything that is no use to them. There is also a lack of humor with this placement because Capricorn is serious, rather pessimistic and deeply skeptical. So, unless you have something to back up your claim, it might be best to just zip-it and keep quiet. Capricorn is serious enough for everyone and has a more conservative approach to just about everything. Stay Astrologized™.
