Mercury finally goes direct in Capricorn today after being retrograde since January 5th., presenting an ideal opportunity to resolve career questions.
Organized and Efficient
Mercury, planet of communication, moves direct in Capricorn. During the next two weeks your thinking may be more methodical and you may consider information in an organized and efficient manner, putting every bit in its proper place.
Your Career & Work Life
Negotiating a salary, finalizing a business deal and accepting a job offer are among the possibilities. Professional presentations will also go smoothly, particularly if they are supported with impressive facts and figures and any tech issues will finally ease off, making communication a touch easier.
Yes, you can breath a sigh of relief!
Getting Your Point Across
During Mercury direct, focus on using as many methods as you can to communicate. You are not limited to just words. Never underestimate the visual impact of charts and graphs, brightly colored labels, and don’t forget about body language ;)
And if you’ve got to hit up the dreaded DMV or get past some bureaucracy, you’ll find that dealing with public officials should be much easier than it has in the recent past. Getting help from a high-level politician or bureaucrat could save you time, money and aggravation. If there’s been difficulty getting through to this person or organization, try again.
Obstacles that once seemed insurmountable could vanish into thin air.
This is a time when you are interested in learning something if it will have practical benefits for you. In fact, if you want to learn something, you will be quite self-directed in your education, and you won’t stop studying, practicing, and developing the necessary skills until you are satisfied that you’re on the path to mastering it.
Define What You Want
A systematic approach will be best for you at this time, both for learning processes and work tasks. You will be able to achieve a lot by breaking it down into smaller parts. That’s exactly how you will reach your goals, too: This is a period to define what you want, and design a step-by-step plan to get there. You may feel a dedication and strong sense of responsibility which will see you through.
Good Business Sense
At this time you will have good business sense, and can be an excellent administrator. Now is the time to challenge yourself to keep your mind well toned with activities such as reading, puzzles, games, and other mental exercises. Try not to act superior to people who aren’t as smart as you are.
Looking ahead, the indecisive Libra Moon will make a square to extravagant Venus. This won’t be a good time to engage in retail therapy. Buyer’s remorse often occurs under this influence. So if you’re teetering on the edge of an impulse buy, take a few days to cool off, re-evaluate, and see if you still absolutely need whatever fancy gadget or outfit you’re drooling over.
