Capricorn 22 Dec - 19 Jan
Mercury, the communication planet,
will be retrograde, appearing to move
backwards when viewed from earth, from
31 October - 20 November. When Mercury is
retrograde it’s prudent to hold-your-horses and
take a less-is-more, wait-and-see approach to
what’s going on. So, avoid the tendency to cut corners,
speak with a forked tongue or neglect to read the small print. This
is a good time to review, revise, reassess and if necessary, move the goalposts. Also keep an eye on electronic devices and equipment which are more likely to play up or disappear.
Since Scorpio is the zone of your solar chart associated with your friends and associates and group activities, it is possible there could be misunderstandings, political intrigues or even shenanigans going on so don’t believe everything your hear and watch and your tongue since it may be prudent to say too little than too much at this time.
With Mars entering Scorpio on 19 November, shortly before Mercury starts to move forward again, there could be some fireworks going off in your social circle so best to bide your time, keep your ear to the ground and resist the temptation to take sides until you know who has your best interests at heart.
