Mercury enters Capricorn on December 20, 2020 at 6:06 pm ET.
Fast moving Mercury will be in Capricorn only until January 8, 2021.
Mercury and the Sun conjunct in Sagittarius on December 19, 2020 just before Mercury enters Capricorn, promising bright ideas and brilliant, meaningful insights around this time. You could have an epiphany and a light bulb moment of awareness! You can also read more about that in the Jupiter in Aquarius horoscope.
Mercury in Capricorn will be in close conjunction with The Sun when The Sun enters Capricorn on December 21, 2020 for the Winter Solstice.
Also, just recently, Saturn left Capricorn and entered Aquarius on December 17, 2020.
With Mercury in Capricorn communications can be your gifts for the holidays and entering into 2021. Information that you share can bring brighter thoughts and ideas to others. Focus on the positive and tap into the Sun in Capricorn energy.
Of course, with Mercury in Capricorn, a lot of people’s minds will likely be focused on politics for the holiday season, that’s for sure! We will see a lot more talk and debate about the issues with governmental powers, the economy and finance, banking and the established powers in society. As Mercury is associated with communications, we will see the media and social media of course work their wonders to sway political opinions.
As Jupiter is also associated to media, and information that sweeps the globe, now in Aquarius and in semi-sextile to Mercury in Capricorn around the Winter Solstice, we can be sure that what is talked about now has a lot of us thinking about the future. With the Sun in Capricorn also in close orb to Mercury at this time since their recent conjunction, we can expect a lot of information to come into people’s awareness significantly changing perspectives.
What I also see as highly important to consider during this period are the topics that came up when Mercury was Retrograde in Scorpio in October 2020, and this could be increasingly relevant as Mercury in Capricorn reaches closer to conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn on January 4, 2021. Topics about what was going on before the US election, will likely come into focus again.
On a personal level, putting your focus on your own goals to figure out where your strengths and weaknesses are and what needs to change for yourself as we head into the future is recommended now. It’s a good time to think more intelligently with ambitions of getting your most important goals in order. Many will want to think harder about the goals they have been pushing toward to make the appropriate changes.
Earth signs like Capricorn are about putting in practical effort and structure to create a rewarding, fulfilling life in the material world. Learning more on the topics that can further your career and getting your life more organized and prepared for the future as best you can is recommended now. Getting more serious about what you are manifesting can bring you to the next stage of goal setting and thus achievement.
With Mercury meeting with Pluto in Capricorn on January 4, 2021, a lot of people will want to transform their life and see themselves on a completely different path. Many goals and priorities are sure to change with special consideration on career matters. We could certainly hear news about big changes in politics.
This is a good time to focus on the details of your finances and investments. Getting your financial books organized and in order is recommended to finish up 2020.
