Retrograde Mercury enters Capricorn today, which favors a practical mindset and setting some goals. Mercury rules thinking and communications, while Capricorn is a methodical Earth sign that rules ambition. So it’s an excellent time to think about your work and what you’d like to accomplish this week, next month, throughout the year – and beyond. However, Mercury’s retrograde motion can entail some backtracking over your plans if you put something in motion between now and January 31, when Mercury turns direct. So do some planning for the future, but double-check communications and paperwork.
