Mercury in Capricorn: Balance Work & Home Life
Mindful Mercury is moving through practical Capricorn now through January 28, emphasizing the need to balance your domestic life with work responsibilities. While in Capricorn, Mercury influences different aspects of your daily life, depending on your sign’s element. Which areas are being highlighted for you by Mercury’s tour through Capricorn?

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Money, daily routines, health and career schedules are emphasized now. Create a schedule that gives you enough time to meet work responsibilities as well as take care of your family. This might mean cutting back on career commitments in the short term to help you get organized. Family finances are in focus too, so if it’s been a while since you reviewed household spending, now’s the time to give things an overhaul.

Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

2014 Jobs and Money Forecast. Master your money and attain success with this startlingly accurate forecast!

Mercury in Capricorn brings out your creative, adventurous side, and you’re more curious than usual. This period ideal for relaxing with family, planning extra outings with the kids, (your own, your relatives or with the younger people in your life) or dedicating some time to pursue a creative hobby. Mercury in Capricorn is less about getting jobs around the house done and more about enjoying your space. If you’re overdue for a family holiday, this is a lovely time to plan your next trip.

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Keep family events to a minimum. Rather than rushing around trying to oblige every invitation, be selective about which gatherings you attend. Spend quiet time at home – and save cash, too. Think of Mercury in Capricorn as a personal retreat period, and recharge for the year ahead. Think simple and easy; any challenges with the family are best put off until February.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Your social houses are energized now, encouraging greater interaction with family and friends. This is a lovely time for you to host a dinner party. If you’ve been neglecting relatives, reach out to them now. Under this astrological influence, you’re stepping into the role of family communicator, so be sure to keep everyone informed of domestic news!
