Mercury enters Capricorn: Feb 8-27th
Mercury is moved into Saturn’s sign of Capricorn last Monday, where hard work will pay-off with writing and communication projects. This transit is pretty clean accept for the Pluto conjunction on Feb. 10th which can be intense.
The first part of the transit is in the constellation of Uttara Ashadaha, ruled by the Sun between until Feb 14th. This promotes the intellect and being practical. It is in the auspicious constellation of Abhitji (Capricorn 6.40-11.17) from Feb 12th-14th where victory happens. The next constellation of Shravana (Capricorn 10-23.20) Feb. 14-23rd 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 or moon signs.
