Mercury in Capricorn is in retrograde motion, in the first days of 2017. The planet even re-enters Sagittarius, between January 5th and January 12th. On January 8th, Mercury turns direct. So, these first days of the year aren’t good for requesting a raise or a promotion. But, starting from January 12th, Mercury helps us to improve our time management skills and to deal with difficult people at work.

Pluto in Capricorn makes many positive aspects: conjunction with the Sun (January, 7th), sextile with Mars (January, 11th), sextile with Venus (January, 20th), conjunction with Mercury (January, 29th). Each of these days represents an opportunity to bring positive changes into our lives, to transform ourselves.
