Mercury enters Capricorn: January 13TH-January 30th, 2020.
Mercury finally moves out of Sagittarius and away from being in the same sign as Saturn but now it moves into Saturn’s sign of Capricorn where hard work will pay-off with writing and communication projects. This transit is pretty clean accept for the Sun’s combustion which is not complete until Jan. 31st but Mercury is used to the Sun and has lots of suntan oil and can handle the Sun better than most planets.
The first part of the transit is in the constellation of Uttara Ashadaha, ruled by the Sun between January 13-19th. This promotes the intellect and being practical. It is in the auspicious constellation of Abhitji (Capricorn 6.40-11.17) from Jan. 17-19th where victory happens. The next constellation of Shravana (Capricorn 10-23.20) Jan. 20-27th is more problematic as Mercury is more uncomfortable with the Moon’s more feeling nature of connection with others, even though this will bring material success. Thankfully, Mercury flourishes in this satvic constellation when Mercury is particularly strong and understands using the intellect for the good of others and to develop spiritual wisdom.
Mercury and Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, are friends and it is a 5th house transit for Virgos bringing more joy with children, romance and spiritual initiations and sports and given Mercury’s nature, game nights and word games and crosswords might flourish. Gemini rising has more problem with this 8th house transit and unexpected surprises connected to legal problems, health issues could arise. Libras and Taurus rising probably benefit more than Leos, Cancers or Scorpio rising.
Saturn, the dispositor of Mercury, is still too close to Pluto and moving toward the edge of sign as it prepares to go into Capricorn Jan. 24th. This still can bring intensity to mental thought and dread and doom and gloom about the world such as fear of war or global warming or whatever is happening in your life. Its influence from Saturn continues over the next few months with Capricorn and Aquarius connected to Saturn and Mercury going retrograde in Aquarius Feb. 16-March 2nd. Still, Mercury/Saturn connections can create shrewd business transactions, especially for those in the technological field and can also create deep analytic thinking, strong mathematical abilities if you use the time to focus. It could lead to more restricted thinking and belief structures.
