Mercury in Capricorn:

Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

When Mercury transits Capricorn, it’s all about commitment. Each of us will feel more motivated to say what we mean and to mean what we say. This isn’t the energy of empty promises, but of living up to your responsibilities and then some.

In astrology, Mercury rules the intellect and our mental processes, so each Mercury transit through the different zodiac signs has a slightly different flavor to it. With the transit through Capricorn, thinking becomes more methodical, grounded and practical.

We’re not dealing with abstract concepts or complex fantasies – we’re dealing with the nuts and bolts of how to get from point A to point B, as quickly, efficiently and painlessly as possible. That does mean that these transits can be rather lacking in imagination and flair – but they help us get the job done.

The main problem with a Mercury in Capricorn transit is rigid thinking. Because creativity of thought takes a backseat, we tend to be inflexible and unable to consider alternative possibilities.

Highly decisive and uber-focused, this energy is great for getting on with the difficult stuff or with long-term planning – but not so great for situations that need a leap of faith.

Mercury transits reflect how we communicate with each other, and when Mercury transits Capricorn, conversations tend to be short, efficient and to the point. It’s an authoritarian style that can come across as cold or unemotional at times.

On the plus side, people are perhaps less likely to lie during this transit, so it’s easier than normal to figure out the motives of others.

Realism is the grounding foundation of both communication and thought during a Mercury in Capricorn transit. However, there’s always a fine line between pessimism and realism, so negative thinking is another possible trap for some of us during this transit.

Each Sun sign will experience the Mercury in Capricorn transit slightly differently. However, all signs will feel the urge to make serious plans and to get on with their goals.

 

Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During Mercury in Capricorn

This is a good period for business, contract negotiations, meetings, financial applications and other serious transactions and paperwork.

Be careful to act with the highest integrity at all times, Aries. You might be able to get away with doing otherwise, especially if you hold a senior position at work, but your integrity and reputation are on the line now.

 

Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During Mercury in Capricorn

This Mercury transit brings out the natural teacher within you, Taurus. You’ll need to stretch your mind, and this is the perfect time to sign up for a new educational course, especially if it will enhance your future prospects.

You’re open-minded and tolerant during this transit but keep in mind that your own love of debate isn’t shared by everyone!

 

Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During Mercury in Capricorn

Obsessive thoughts can be a feature of this Mercury transit for you, Gemini. Your new obsession may well be perfectly harmless, but it can cause problems with your focus on home, work or family matters, so keep aware so it doesn’t take over your life.

There will also be a fascination with all things weird and mysterious – and why not?

 

Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During Mercury in Capricorn

This Mercury transit is fantastic for negotiations or business deals, Cancer, as you are at your most charming and persuasive best.

However, it activates your house of love, so it’s in interpersonal relationships where you’ll most notice better communication. Talk honestly with your sweetheart and you’ll grow much closer together.

 

Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During Mercury in Capricorn

If anyone can handle an increased workload during this transit, it’s you, Leo. Put your awesome powers of organization to good use and streamline everything within reach.

This is likely to be an extremely busy period for you, but you like the buzz it brings. Step-by-step is the way to go, and a sense of achievement is waiting at the end of the road.

 

Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During Mercury in Capricorn

You can use the energy of this Mercury in Capricorn transit to better your creative or hobby skills, Virgo. Teach yourself or sign up for some training.

You’ll want to completely master any new activity, rather than just being able to get by. Since you won’t get bored easily, this is a good time to focus intently on just one area of leisure, and to become expert at it.

 

Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During Mercury in Capricorn

Family communication matters most during this Mercury transit, so do take this opportunity to stay in touch with all of your loved ones, Libra, whether or not you see one another regularly.

There also are strong connections to the past with this energy, and if you do your research you may be able to unearth fascinating themes which have continued through the generations.

 

Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During Mercury in Capricorn

Mental flexibility is key to surviving this Mercury transit with your sanity intact, Scorpio! It’s likely to be an exceptionally busy time, so your plate-spinning skills will need to be up to scratch.

As a Fixed sign, Scorpio, you tend to have tunnel vision, so it could be a struggle to deal with so many challenges at once. It will stretch your mind, but in a good way – lots to learn here.

 

Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During Mercury in Capricorn

Take your financial responsibilities seriously during this Mercury transit, Sagittarius. It’s time to shop around for a better deal on your credit cards, or to switch mortgage or insurance providers.

Create a budget for the coming year and work on yourself, too. You’re prone to impulse spending: What can you do to curb that in the months ahead?

 

Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During Mercury in Capricorn

When Mercury transits through your own sign, you come into your intellectual own, Capricorn. This is an excellent period to be either a student or a teacher, and your thirst for knowledge increases greatly.

Guard against being too dogmatic, however. Your view is not the only view worth considering. If you can show some of Mercury’s flexibility, you could learn a lot from other people right now.

 

Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20– February 17) During Mercury in Capricorn

Dreams and mediumship are much easier to pin down during this transit of Mercury. Start a dream journal and get some training in how to communicate with the spirit world, Aquarius.

Noticing synchronicities around you is a good way to start – there’s so much more going on in the cosmos than you realize, and this transit is your gateway to learning.

 

Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During Mercury in Capricorn

You’ll be feeling inventive during this Mercury transit, Pisces, so pay great attention to any ideas you have, especially in the tech field.

Every hugely successful business starts with a tiny fleeting concept. Innovation and communication are both key skills for you during this period, so don’t be afraid to come forward with your ideas. The world is listening.

    I can't describe how excited I was when I found out about this course with my favourite Astrologer Kelli Fox. It was absolutely FASCINATING! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially like me if you love astrology more as a hobby and just want to suck in as much information as you can. I loved all the extra pages of information you can go through that are linked up with Kelli's website when needing a greater understanding. I already can't wait to go back through the course again and finding out how much more I can learn. I hope there will be more courses in future with Kelli. She is the best!Cached

    Kelli is so "on point". I've come to trust her instincts as I do my own. The only issue I have is occasionally on the site itself, some of the links don't seem to connect...like the birth/natal chart...whether through email or the search engine links, or even the ones here on the site. As far as the readings, reports, horoscopes, etc. go....A+ and then some!!!! Love you Kelli!Cached

    Kelli Fox makes Astrology fun and educational. Her honest excitement about sharing her knowledge comes thru with every reading. From the daily and weekly horoscopes thru to the monthly reports she delivers a way of navigating thru even the most troublesome aspects. And the weekly Zoom meetings with her email subscribers midweek, seriously help to plot a course through the upcoming astrological currents.Cached

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached
