Mercury stations direct in Capricorn this week 
Mercury has been retrograde in Capricorn for the past 3 weeks.

Mercury stations direct in Capricorn on Monday, January 25, 2016 at 4:50 pm ET. This is the beginning of a new way forward.

This can be a major turning point for many.

Mercury retrograde has been hovering very close to Pluto and turns direct just a degree away from Pluto. This is quite significant. This puts a huge emphasis on big changes in transforming our way of thinking.

This is an excellent time for getting rid of old, outworn thoughts you don't need. In Capricorn, this also puts an emphasis on material things, so if you are holding on to things that are no longer useful, this is a great time to declutter your home and office. Getting rid of the the old and replacing it with the new is highly recommended. Replacing your old thoughts, with new patterns of thinking can take you forward towards your ambitions.

In the tarot, Mercury is the Magician. It is where we take our thoughts and turn them into real world results. Our thoughts and intentions affect the material world around us.

When Mercury began his retrograde phase on January 5 he had just stepped into Aquarius a few days earlier. He then turned retrograde, entered back into Capricorn, and now meets up with Pluto in Capricorn. Transitioning to going direct at the beginning of this week, now heading forward, Mercury will be back in Aquarius in a few weeks.

With Mercury doing this dance between Aquarius and Capricorn we first got a glimpse of higher ideals and hope for the future, then almost immediately we have been drawn back into material reality of Capricorn to have another look at what needs to change. The changes we need to make are big and so they demand our attention. Pluto is a potent planet and rules over the big areas of life - birth, sex, death, rebirth. Pluto symbolizes the cycle of life, and that includes the parts of reality we may often ignore or push under the rug because we don’t like to admit they are real. Capricorn also rules big business, career matters, politics and rules of society. We are going through a long term transition now and Mercury retrograde here has brought our attention to this part of our life with more discernment.

Pluto in Capricorn can represent our fears, our most primal selves, our instincts, and especially the not so nice side of business and politics. As well, this Mercury retrograde is happening in square to Uranus in Aries, it can signify war drums beating.

This is when we take a hard look at reality and see it for what it is without sugar coating it. We get a chance to take a closer look and to rethink what we want. What are we really go for in life?

Mercury has to do with exchanges, not only of information and communications, but also of money. It has to do with business, the stock market, commerce, trading and merchandise. Mercury retrograde over Pluto in Capricorn has a lot to do with money, banks, and of course debt.

Debt is not your money, it’s not something you actually have, it’s something you owe. Debt is trading your time, your future, for what you are receiving now. Debt is borrowing time from your future. The question is, is trading the limited time you have in life worth the stuff you are buying? Is having debt hanging over you worth it? Since debt most often comes with a price tag in the form of interest over time, you will be spending even more time out of your life in the future to pay back that original debt from your past, as the debt grows. Is that what people really want? Is that how people envision their future - paying debt? Interestingly, with how things are manufactured now with the intention of not lasting long so you need to upgrade again in the near future, usually the item you bought ends up being obsolete or has been damaged and devalued by the time you do pay the debt owed for that item. That cycle works well for businesses to make money, but for consumers it can be repetitive nonsense.

Debt often keeps so many people in poverty because it is not your money you are using, it’s money you owe back to the bank or someone else. So, if you’re not using your own money, and you have to borrow, that logically means you don’t have enough money of your own. Debt is not wealth. Having thousands of dollars available on your credit card doesn’t mean you have more money, it means that you will owe more money if you use it. It is not your money.

Borrowing money is a choice to give away your future time in exchange for something now, but what really matters in life is the time you have. Time is what’s really valuable in life. Once time is spent, you won’t be getting it back so you have to honestly ask yourself if what you’re buying with debt is really worth you handing over your precious time.

With Mercury stationing direct right over Pluto in Capricorn, this is the time for us to be rethinking all things that have to do with the earth element, and that includes business, money, and the material world and environment. With Mercury stationing retrograde in Aquarius back in early January and heading forward to Aquarius again soon, this is a time for us to be thinking about our long term future. What are we working towards? What are our ambitions?

Mercury retrograde and direct right over Pluto is telling us to remember that we shape reality. We choose. We create. We manifest. It's up to us what we choose to create and manifest in reality. We have the power. We can transform our reality. It is the power of our thoughts manifesting and transforming what happens in reality. It is alchemy. It is magic. It is the phoenix rising from the ashes with new awareness and creating a new future. It's telling us to become aware because when you're aware you can create change. This is turning lead into gold. Awareness can change everything.

Capricorn is about achieving the dream you’ve been building towards. It has been said, that if you are not building your own dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs. With Mercury retrograde in Capricorn the past few weeks it's been an important time to rethinking what dreams and goals you are building for yourself. What are you achieving? How are you trading your time to build something of value for your life?

Capricorn is symbolized by a sea-goat creature. This signifies going from the very depths of the unknown to climbing all the way up the mountain towards the peak. Have you ever seen those pictures of goats climbing mountains? Now, they are determined and suited for the task. When we’re at the peak of the mountain, that’s when we see the vast light, expanse and freedom of Aquarius. That’s what we’re really working towards, the hope, freedom and liberation of Aquarius. That’s when we realize the achievement we’ve made by doing the work in the material world.

We may not know exactly when we will be entering the Age of Aquarius, but it does seem like we’re getting there. With the internet, the huge boom in technology and innovation, social media and communications connecting us across the globe instantly, I think it’s safe to say that we are slowly entering into the Age of Aquarius step by step. We are at the dawn. Life is about the flow of time, there seems to be a more natural, gradual progression that transitions us from one large phase to another. But, it doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy. It is certainly possible from time to time that we will get a sudden jolt, an awakening from the external world that prompts us to evolve to the next level of awareness. If we want to get to the next level of being consciously evolved, we are going to need to change the way we think.

So this week a lot of emphasis is on Mercury stationing direct in Capricorn to begin the final stage of the Mercury retrograde cycle. Mercury will be meeting with Pluto again in Capricorn on Saturday, January 30 at 12:58 am. ET.

Mercury direct over Pluto reminds us to pay closer attention to how we think about and relate to the material world. Pluto is the planet of power. This has us thinking in new ways about our own power and how power and authority is used in the world in all kinds of areas of life, from politics, to money, to personal power, to ambitions.

With Pluto in Capricorn there is a strong emphasis that we definitely need to have a change from the old model of business and commerce. There’s a need to purge corruption from the larger system as well. It’s easy to see that the way we’ve been going is not sustainable. Mercury hovering over Pluto in Capricorn is imploring us to take a look at how our longstanding, rigid mindsets are doing to the earth and the environment and to make a change. Literally this can also be a new focus on energy matters, including the price of oil. Oil is interesting because it comes from the earth, but our use of it and transforming it also impacts the earth in negative ways. Plastic is made from oil. Did you know that it has been said that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish? Obviously this is an insane direction we're heading in.

Pluto is half way through Capricorn now and will enters Aquarius in 2024. We still have a lot to learn and change regarding how we relate to the earth. Mercury will be retrograde 3 more times in 2016, in fellow earth signs Taurus, Virgo and then again in Capricorn at the end of the year. Mercury is emphasizing the importance of bringing mindfulness and attention to the earth and money throughout the year.

This week is about finding new ideas that are goal oriented and ambitious. This also relates to how we think and relate to our bodies and the food we eat as well. It’s so important to clean up your life now and to purge what you don’t need. Cleaning and organizing your office and home so you can be more efficient is recommended. The act of cleaning is the act of paying attention to your situation and your surroundings. Let go of clutter makes room for better energy flow. Purging yourself of negative thinking patterns and replacing them with hope for a better future is essential this week as well.

Jupiter meets with the North Node on January 29th in fellow earth sign Virgo adding more emphasis to the earth element. This can feel like a destined time and encourages us to get ourselves in order, to think bigger about the possibilities of our life. It also signifies focusing more on health and getting in touch with your physical self. A new routine of health and exercise is recommended to help you clear your energy, your mind and body. Feng Shui practices that emphasize positive energy flow, prosperity and abundance are recommended. A nice new plant in your office can signify growth. Your attention and care for the plant is a good reflection and practice to remind you to also take care of yourself.

Venus in Capricorn is in harmony with Neptune in Pisces on Saturday. If we can start from a place of love and higher consciousness to guide our decisions and goals we can move mountains and make dreams possible. Self care and self love are emphasized as a priority as well. In order to achieve you need to be sure you are taking care of yourself.

Finally, Mercury in Capricorn, close to Pluto squares Uranus on Sunday. This may be sudden change of mind, with a determination, drive and a need for freedom that pushes us forward, quite possibly with a jolt, an epiphany or a wake up call to reality. On a larger scale, this can be when a larger counterculture movement takes root, possibly behind the scenes, that hearkens back to the 60s need for freedom from all types of oppression, especially focusing on financial and political issues.

With Mercury stationing direct this week, it’s also likely that you’ll find messages, books, articles or social activities arrive that help you think in new ways to move forward. For entrepreneurs and business owners this is a time to accept that thinking new is a necessity. Since Mercury and Pluto are in square with Uranus, this can be a good time to let go of a business idea that just hasn’t been working, so you can replace it with a better idea. It can be when you finally face reality and acknowledge that a significant change is due in your life. With Venus entering deeper into Capricorn this week, thinking about value, money matters, worth and how much love you put into what you’re working toward is essential. This week facing and releasing our fears, and acknowledging our goals that truly matter is recommended.
