The powerful Capricorn combination of Sun and Pluto is fierce and can instigate abrupt change. Try your best to remain calm: the energy of Mercury Retrograde will quickly stall all plans and inevitably delay action.
What To Avoid During This Mercury Retrograde:
- International travel, particularly to conflict-stricken countries. Now is not the time for extreme cultural contrast.
- Confrontations and difficult conversations. Keep the drama or special requests to a bare minimum. Do not ask for a raise, do not go to couples counseling and do not try to solve problems with family members. Communication will be at its weakest point until January 25th!
- Filing important paperwork. Do not file your taxes (or even prepare paperwork), do not file divorce papers and do not sign important documents.
- Avoid large purchases, such as homes or cars. And if you must, please triple-check all contracts!
- Medical treatments are safe during this time, but be prepared for scheduling delays. Clerical errors are common, so verify (and re-verify) your prescriptions to make sure you were prescribed the correct product and dosage!
Summary: Stay grounded, prepare for the unknown and don't make any major decisions or plans. Now is the perfect time to stay at home and work on your personal hobbies and creative projects.
Love & Magick,
