For most of December, communication planet Mercury has been in dream-big Sagittarius. This can lead to overestimating what you can do or afford, or over stretching your schedule.  Now, with Mercury getting down to business and moving into Capricorn on December 23 (through January 11), you may find it easier to set helpful limits just as the holiday season reaches its peak.

This is a mentally grounded energy that can help you understand the trade-off between short-term pain and long-term gain. Mercury in Capricorn is focused on the future and eager to organize a grounded plan for success. Whatever your goals now -- a calm holiday, a strong start to 2014 -- Mercury in Capricorn can help you put a plan into place.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure and focus. Mercury has a quicksilver, trickster nature. When in Saturn's sign, Mercury is urged to get organized, so a little effort goes a long way now. Consider the consequences of what you decide, and make sure the costs are truly worth it.

A slow-and-steady approach will help you stay calm through the end of the year. Mercury in Capricorn embodies the idea that when you say "no" to one offer, you create space to say "yes" to another. As we move out of the holiday season and into the new year, remember to keep your eye on the prize!
