December 7 Mercury Conjunct Pluto 4:12 am EST (Cap)
December 7 Mercury Square Saturn 9:35 pm EST (Cap vs Libra)
When Mercury gets on top of Pluto for its annual romp, there ain't much foreplay. Mercury's tongue is quick and Pluto is razor sharp. Does that sound like fun? Nope. But it is clever. (That's the Dorothy Parker part) Now for the good news. Your "business mind" is exact. Everyone will be cutting to the chase even when there isn't a chase. If there are any hurdles at work, they will be dissolved with one swift email. Of course, Capricorn is a bit of a downer so if you are feeling blue, just blame sour dour Capricorn. But if you have got shit to take care of and you have been dragging your ass...today is the day to take care of it. I, for one, will call the medical company that has sent me a bill, once a month for six months which I have deliberately avoided dealing with because the thought of calling their red tape circus has left me moribund.
But tomorrow, I will call them and clear it up for ever. That is what this energy is about.
"Great, I get it, I can lance the wound and clear out the disease. But what about Mercury Square Saturn?" Well, we may be a bit negative in the night. Perhaps the work we did in the morning exhausts us. If we get a shit phone call from anyone, blow it off. Saturn is so strict and stern and Mercury who likes to be light and frivolous can't get it's rocks off today to save himself. So, guess what---that is why god created phone machines. Phone Machine on? Check. Eat Dinner? Check. Pour drink? Check. Bed? Check.
Razors pain you; rivers are damp; acids stain you; and drugs cause cramp. Guns aren't lawful; nooses give; gas smells awful; you might as well live.
Dorothy Parker (1893-1967) U.S. short-story writer and poet.
