When Mercury is in Capricorn
Your Intellectual Self in the Sign of
Professional Focus and Public Life Interests

by Rebecca Brents


Thinking turns serious ...

When Mercury is in Capricorn, ideas are cautious, conservative and serious. 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.

This time will emphasize meeting responsibilities and commitments, exerting and dealing with authority, putting your shoulder to the wheel ... and building for the future. People feel strongly about discipline, discretion, endurance, and integrity.


... determined and scrupulous

Ideas show determination, tenacity, and careful thought -- flavored with a strong respect for tradition. Communication is more scrupulous, circumspect, discreet, and reserved, with concern for "correctness" in manners and presentation.

Under stress with Mercury in Capricorn, attitudes and judgments become pessimistic, critical, severe. This energy when it goes sour turns bitter, mean, calculating, cynical, grasping, inflexible, unemotional, and even vindictive.

There is far too much emphasis on personal achievement at the expense of human feeling and the conduct of smooth relationships. It may seem that status and "the bottom line" are the only things that count.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and 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.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information. Mercury depicts your capacity to form ideas and opinions, the way you deal with facts, and the way you process data. It shows the kinds of things that interest you ... and what you do with what you know.
