Mercury enters Capricorn tonight (10:52 PM EST). Capricorn's structure gives Mercury's information exquisite form. Words are precise, focused and effective. Natal Mercury in Capricorn is present in the chart of some wonderfully effective writers/communicators.
Capricorn has a rep for being unimaginative, but I find that Mercury excels in this sign. Each word is crafted for maximum impact. There is no waste and no histrionics. Intellect is grounded and ideas are manifested (Capricorn is an Earth sign) but there's a quiet determination to make things happen (Capricorn is a Cardinal sign). In Capricorn, only the real deal is uttered. Words are a direct line to action. This transit is fantastic for all business communication, but any type of communication or information gathering that demands focus and proof of intent will do well. Capricorn gives authority to Mercury, as well. Words are carefully considered, but not fussy.
