Mercury Turns Direct in Capricorn:

It's Time to Make Plans

Mercury is the planet in astrology which rules short distance travel, communicating and having many fast and connecting thoughts.

Mercury is said to rule the hands, arms, shoulders, lungs and nerves.

Due to Mercury's rulership being in the sign of Gemini, this planet can cause contradicting thoughts, speaking too much and having a lot of information on many topics - but never deep enough to master one.

Each planet has a period where it will slow down and cause it to seemingly go backwards. This is symbolizing that we all could benefit from thinking a bit more before we speak and having more of an inward reflection. This is called a retrograde.

Mercury in Capricorn will start its retrograde on December 29th, 2022 through January 18th, 2023. 

Mercury goes retrograde three to four times a year for approximately 3 weeks each time. Depending on the sign Mercury is in at the time will determine what all of our communication should be about and what we are currently having ideas on.

In those three weeks of the retrograde,  is a time to reflect and take a step back. We should be gathering information during this time instead of implementing those actions.

With this being said, and Mercury ruling communication, we may have a lot of past friends, family and acquaintances reappear during this time for talks.

You may have a proposal to make something happen before the retrograde begins but it is best to wait until after the retrograde ends to continue moving forward.

This three week period will gift you many revelations and ideas that you should ponder over before taking action.

When Mercury goes Direct, we may feel like we have emerged from quick sand.

We may feel it is easier to make choices and see things we once didn't see. Everything seems to be a bit hazy and unclear when a planet appears to be going backwards.

Once that period is over we will have a better grasp on how we truly feel and make less of a mistake or agree to something we are unsure of.

Capricorn rules structure and builds a blueprint. During this retrograde it is best to not depend on random ideas from others and acting from emotions.

The planets were used to tell time before clocks were invented. The retrograde periods can seem like they always happen at the worst time. For example; you get a job offer right before a planet's retrograde and if you take it during that time you may feel like it's the job you need. But as time passes you may see that it was a mistake.

Let's take a look at what each sign may be facing in a more detailed description since Mercury has finally gone Direct in Capricorn.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for an Aries (Aries dates: March 20th – April 19th)

A lot of communication is coming through in your work and career sector. You may have been dealing with many ideas and opportunities when it comes to promotions and advancements.

It is best right now to be very open minded and judge just how solidified this idea can be. Is it just a job for the season or is this something you've always wanted and will last a long time?

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Taurus (Taurus dates: April 20th – May 20th)

Taurus, you recently may have read a book that caused you to have a shift in your beliefs. Are you revisiting an old situation where you feel less adequate about expressing how you feel?

Now is a good time to reevaluate those long distance trips you were planning to take. What will benefit you best in the future? Believe in yourself and everything will work out.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Gemini (Gemini dates: May 21st – June 20th)

You understand the importance of compromise and keeping things to yourself now, Gemini. You know what to speak on and what to keep hidden.

If you have been dealing with intimacy issues and finding a deep emotional connection with someone, you may be better prepared to take the next steps now. It's best to either have someone you can trust or not speak at all.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Cancer (Cancer dates: June 21st – July 21st)

Watch what you say to your partner! With Mercury now Direct you may or may not have said something you regret to your significant other or a business partner. You know the right person for you now. You know which job will propel you the furthest.

You have many ideas and options on who to date and start that new friendship, job or career. Put yourself first and see if that makes a difference.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Leo (Leo dates: July 22nd – August 21st)

Leo, you have a reputation for wanting to be seen all the time and the center of attention. But are you in the right location? Is your workplace meeting those needs? Are you able to work without being so stressed?

You have a clear understanding of the type of field and coworkers you need to be around now. Don't gossip to the wrong crowd or people. All attention isn't good attention.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22nd – September 21st)

You may have had a lot of people interested in you during this time. You may have also found a bunch of new hobbies to tap into. With Mercury being Direct, I'm sure you know who is talking just to talk and who sincerely cares about you.

Try not to be down about past ways you expressed yourself. It's okay to be you and love what you are passionate about. Tackle that creative side head on.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22nd – October 22nd)

Family may be feeling a bit distant right now. You may feel like no one understands what you're trying to get across. No one can relate in your immediate family, but that's okay. They may even speak badly about your lack of empathy or emotional stance.

Be open to new ways to connect to your family. Friends and even starting your own "family" that will understand your thought process will bloom and you will feel comfortable emoting to the right people.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23rd – November 21st)

You keep your sentences short. You don't really like to talk much at the moment and that's because your way of expressing your feelings are not being read properly. You may find yourself trying new places around your city.

Be open to trying new things and exploring more. You will begin to travel and connect with a better group of people and friends who have the same mental stimulus and connection as you. Keep going.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22nd – December 20th)

Feeling a bit more confident in your speech after Mercury goes Direct? Perfect. It may be hard to let your ideas be seen, but now is a great time for old insecurities to vanish and to be more independent.

You have all the right to let your mind be heard. Don't let fear and inadequacy stop you. You are more than enough.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21st – January 18th)

With Mercury being in Capricorn, your own sign, you feel renewed. Your ego has been repaired. Speak your actions into existence. Whatever you say and want to act on, you will do just that.

You are clearer in your intentions and won't let other words discourage you anymore. You have a strong heart, soul and mind. Believe.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19th – February 17th)

Higher love and purpose along with care and compassion are the themes for you right now, Aquarius. Understanding that communication just to be heard isn't cutting it anymore. It's best to communicate only on things you are spiritually attached to. Remember, silence is golden. 

There are many topics you want to talk about and not a whole lot of people may be into. There is a group out there waiting for you. Just be yourself and you will attract them.

Mercury Direct in Capricorn for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18th – March 19th)

Having to change the way you think or speak just to find love isn't going to work. You may have noticed. You don't have to follow what is popular.

It's okay to be distant from the crowd and follow your own path. Being an individual and keeping your unique interests and qualities are what's important. Speak your mind regardless of what others think. It's not about being heard. It's about being you.

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    Kelli, I have come to RELY upon your dailies (Cancer), especially your unique Rating System! Feel LOST on those rare days when I don't have that going for me! So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
