On December 29th, 2022 Mercury retrograde and Venus meet at 24° Capricorn.
Within hours of turning retrograde, Mercury conjuncts Venus (also at 24° Capricorn). This Mercury-Venus conjunction will pretty much set the tone for the entire Mercury retrograde cycle.
In the following weeks, we are invited to explore not only our thoughts, but also the emotional imprints attached to those thoughts. Capricorn rules “systems” so this transit is an opportunity to reset mental models that are deeply ingrained in our psyche.
When we understand how our thoughts influence our feelings and the other way around, we can get to the root cause of our motivations, and we’re able to reframe those mental and emotional models that no longer serve our growth.
