Mercury’s Capricorn ingress on December 9th enhances the focus and structure of all communication and information. This is a “get serious” influence for Mercury, enabling you to target what has the most potential, and ignore what doesn’t. Conversations will be about practicality over empathy, and reality over wishful thinking. Ideas must have practical applications before they are considered.
Let Mercury (in the Capricorn area of your chart) be your anchor as Mars in Libra opposes Uranus Rx in Aries on December 10th. This volatile influence will be the final snap in a situation that's been brewing since November 24th. The Mars/Pluto square is exact today (check out last week's horoscopes) and Mars/Uranus will trigger the surprising result, unexpected action or bolt for freedom. This all leads up to the Sagittarius New Moon (on December 11th) which will be enhanced by a square from Jupiter in Virgo and trine to Uranus. New beginnings will be bursting with possibility, and the trine between Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces on the same day adds to the expansive potential. No limits, no problems.
However, when there's a square to Jupiter there's always reason to be a touch sceptical. There will be tons of potential here, but there's a risk of ignoring certain details, or taking on too much, too soon. The December 4th square between Mercury in Sag and Jupiter hinted at this. Also, note that on December 11th Mars in Libra will hit Chiron in Pisces with a touchy inconjunct, warning us that unbalanced actions/initiatives will easily rub someone the wrong way (especially since Mars is just coming off that opposition to Uranus).
