Things Know Mercury Capricorn

by Rebecca Brents

break

From Dec 2001*

Mercury, the symbol of rational thinking and intellectual energy, moved into Capricorn around mid-day on Saturday. It will be there until January 3.

When Mercury is in Capricorn, ideas are cautious, conservative, and serious. Thinking shows a strong concern for prestige, reputation, and honor for one's professional accomplishments. This energy is known for being deliberate, disciplined, hard-working, persistent, pragmatic, self-controlled, and reliable.

There may be a very obvious emphasis on meeting responsibilities and commitments, exerting and dealing with authority, working hard, and building for the future. People feel strongly about matters such as discipline, discretion, self-control, endurance, and integrity of character.

Ideas are put forth with determination, tenacity, and careful thought -- and are flavored with a strong respect for tradition. Accordingly, styles of communicating may be scrupulous, circumspect, discreet, reserved, and with clear emphasis on "correctness" in manners and presentation.

Under stress, communication and styles of thinking become pessimistic, critical, severe, bitter, mean, calculating, cynical, grasping, inflexible, unemotional, and even vindictive. There may be far to much emphasis on personal achievement at the expense of human feeling and the conduct of smooth relationships.

It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.

People think about prestige, reputation, and honor for professional accomplishments. This energy is deliberate and disciplined. It encourages hard work, persistence, practicality and self-control. Attitudes are more pragmatic and reliable than the visionary enthusiasm of Mercury in Sagittarius ... which just ended.
