In the next 7 days:
Wow! Look at all these Earth Signs! Mercury will join Mars, Pluto and the Sun in Capricorn, Jupiter and the planet Uranus are in Taurus – 6 Earth Signs in total! This is calling for us to get real – to think about our priorities, goals and problems in a solid, down-to-earth fashion and to take the practical steps necessary to move forward.
Also with the planet Mercury, the planet of communication, joining Mars, the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn there’ll be a driving intensity and purpose in our conversations – but we’ll need to avoid pushing the point too far, if we want to achieve agreement or understanding.
ARIES. A big professional task or ambitious project on the job will be an opportunity to prove yourself, a big personal undertaking will also require careful organisation and management; keep your priorities and objectives clear, it will help you to cope effectively. With the planet Mercury joining all this Capricorn: there’ll be some intense discussions with colleagues, to sort out the best way forward with these ambitious endeavours; there may also be some points of difference that require a few compromises.
TAURUS. You’ll pour energy into exciting travel plans or exciting plans with a distant relative, colleague or friend; you may also reconnect with someone who’s returning from a trip. An outing or exploring new places will bring a feast of interesting discoveries and experiences; there’ll be much to learn along the way. Mercury, the planet of communication, adding to all this Capricorn energy indicates important discussions with a distant loved one or associate, and an informative discussion regarding a legality, contract or important documents, will be opportunities to gain answers to lots of questions.
GEMINI. This will be a turning-point time for you: a personal matter you feel strongly about will surge to the fore, it will be time to address this; there’ll be a complex financial issue and extra expenses or special outlays to deal with too – calm, clear attention to details will serve you well. The planet Mercury joining all this Capricorn energy could spark intense personal and financial discussions – these will open the way to explain your ideas, intentions and goals and to broach a simmering situation in a positive, progressive way.
CANCER. A strong focus on relationships may stir up some prickly issues with your mate or a relative, as well as launch special plans and commitments; you’ll also pour energy into helping loved ones, there’ll be sudden requests and extra chores to deal with and a family occasion will need practical support – some relationships may be a little wearing. The planet Mercury moving into Capricorn will join the fray: there’ll be family and personal issues that need to be addressed, things that need to be said but also things that don’t need to be said – some personal and family discussions will require a thoughtful strategy!
LEO. Work and health matters are both emphasised for you – a promotion, work opportunity or extra responsibilities on the job will put you under the pump, a health goal or big physical task will also call for strong follow through; a clear plan of action and good organisation will be essential. The planet Mercury joining this strong Capricorn accent will bring a defining discussion with a work colleague or endeavour; it will be important to listen and learn, as well as to put forth your ideas in very practical terms and to recognise when some give-and-take will be beneficial.
VIRGO. Making and keeping special promises to loved ones and friends will commit you to some big labours of love, an interest or pursuit that’s a passion will ask for next level involvement too; think carefully with all your arrangements, to avoid over-stretching your resources. With Mercury joining all this energy in Capricorn, ‘deep and meaningful’ discussions with a loved one or someone who shares your passion for an interest or pursuit may become a little intense; there’ll be important points to raise, but also how you say things will be important; it'll take thoughtful words to bring clarity and understanding.
LIBRA. A huge domestic undertaking will push you to the max; bringing this to fruition will be a lot of work, there’ll be so much to organise and a few frustrations or stresses along the way - it may help you to have a time-line and to fulfill your goals one step at a time! A family commitment or situation will also require an organised and super effort and, on top of that, visitors could descend upon you! An overdue, informative but challenging family discussion will need your communication skills – it will be an opportunity to nip niggling family differences in the bud, build understanding with a family member and sort out some big plans.
SCORPIO. An exciting and ambitious new endeavour will power ahead; you’ll throw yourself into it and learn an enormous amount as you go! Travelling extra miles and cultivating new contacts will take special personal efforts and some well-thought-out organisation. The planet Mercury joining all this energy in Capricorn points to communication opportunities and challenges – whether you’re selling something, explaining something, teaching or discussing important issues, being very clear with your intentions and facts but not too forceful will be a balance that helps you achieve meaningful results.
SAGITTARIUS. An ambitious financial project, costly purchase or big expensive plans will be exciting and fire your enthusiasm – take care to clarify and organise your budget, so you don’t over-reach and can manage it well. Be prepared for a few extra and unexpected outlays though; keeping some extra funds aside would ease the pressure. The planet Mercury in Capricorn here will bring important financial discussions or negotiations; you’ll need to make your point but also take on board information or advice that will shape your decisions.
CAPRICORN. You are ready to take the proverbial ‘bit between your teeth’ – you’ll be motivated, pro-active and determined to get ambitious plans off the ground, or to tackle issues, problems or take steps that you’ve been postponing; your positive actions will showcase your ideas and abilities, and help you make the most of this progressive time. The planet Mercury joining all this energy in your Zodiac Sign will bring conversations where you need to speak up for yourself, or you’ll initiate conversations you’re keen to have; staying opening to different points of view and new suggestions will serve you.
AQUARIUS. Doing your research and pinning down the details of a big domestic or family project will set it up for success – there’ll be some tough decisions along the way and a lot more to some aspects of this than initially meets the eye, but clear objectives, thoroughness and staying power will steer you through. With Mercury in Capricorn here – a discussion that’s been a long time coming, or revisits the past, will spark reflective moods; there’ll be something important you need to say or hear!
PISCES. It will take an organised effort to do or achieve something that is especially meaningful to you but strong follow through will get you there; something fun or a social get-together will also require a clear, well-planned course of action. With Mercury joining this strong accent in Capricorn, a timely meeting or informative exchange with a friend or colleague will guide you forward with an important matter or decision, and help you with your plans.
