On the 29th of December an out-of-bounds (23rd December-11th January 2020) Mercury barges out of Sagittarius with more than the usual bluntness and awkwardness that often characterises his sojourn there and lands in Capricorn.
After fun-loving Sagittarius this will certainly hit him with force, dampening his mood and deepening his thoughts and encouraging all of us to think, plan and talk in a much more serious fashion.
Mercury in Capricorn is a serious, sensible version of Mercury, very determined and with great concentration which will serve us well as we elaborate, mull over and tie up any loose ends of projects we’ve been working on.
The OOB status might add more than a hint of extra-ordinariness to this placement, highlighting the characteristics of this Saturn-ruled placement.
