The next few weeks will be about turning thoughts into reality.
Mercury enters structured Capricorn on January 8th. It will only be in this sign until January 27th but the planet of thoughts and communication will make a significant impact during its stay.
As soon as it enters Capricorn it will trine Jupiter in Taurus. Right away, plans (Mercury) with structure (Capricorn) can manifest (Taurus) into something big (Jupiter). Write it down, keep it real and you'll be surprised at how far your ideas go. On January 13th, Mercury will unite with Pluto in Capricorn. This indicates the optimistic new beginnings on January 8th will be given a serious boost from:
- Those in authority
- External power
- Your own drive for success
Mercury/Pluto unites thought with evolutionary power. This is potent stuff. It won't just be about getting ahead, it will involve changing structures into something (hopefully) better. As if this wasn't enough, Mercury will get a shot of fire when it trines Mars in Virgo on January 23rd. Get ready for the follow-up work to support your plans for domination. But keep in mind that Mars will start to move in reverse (retrograde) on this same day. So the follow-up work will consist of going back over existing plans to make sure they're correct.
All three earth signs are involved so this is a golden opportunity to manifest something into solid reality. This influence will work nicely for those who send out resumes, proposals or ask for a raise. If you have goals/desires for this year, write them down on January 8th and watch the opportunities unfold (the key is writing them down so they become visible). Just be aware that this is not a "magic" influence. Your plans must be grounded in reality.
Everyone can benefit from this transit but those with planets in the earth signs can really take this to the bank. Literally, in some cases.
