Mercury in Capricorn Explained
The planet Mercury is the primary influence that will determine your personal communication style. If you've got Mercury in Capricorn, this will be the energy that colors the way you think, the way you talk, the way you learn and the way you perceive and react to those around you. Other planetary aspects will play a part as well, but this will be the most significant. For more information, please continue reading below!
One Step at a Time
Mercury in Capricorn does not rush into any sort of decision making, and there is no point in trying to get them to do so. These people take their time to carefully consider their options and every possible outcome that could come to pass as a result. That's not to say they can't make up their minds when the dinner menu is in front of them, but with the big things, they will make as calculated a decision as they can. This can be maddening for other, less patient signs, but Capricorn is very good at planning for the future, and they are not going to make any big decisions before they know how that decision could affect it.
No Rash Outbursts Here
While some signs will speak straight from the heart, without giving any thought as to the possible consequences, Mercury in Capricorn will never, ever do this. There are many reasons for this, but the primary reason is that they simply do not like to say anything until they are sure they've got all the facts in order, and until they are sure they've come up with the best possible answer. Anything less could result in looking silly, and Capricorn is not a silly sign by any stretch of the imagination. That doesn't mean they don't feel intensely or that they can't experience a flare of temper -- it means that they are unlikely to let you see them give the appearance of being anything less than totally in control of themselves and their emotions.
A Lasting Impression
Mercury in Capricorn is not interested in wowing you with enthusiasm, or impressing you with their passion. Nor are they interested in achieving something fabulous in the short term that will be quickly forgotten when the next big thing comes along. These people are more interested in leaving a lasting impression on the world. They would much rather leave a legacy behind that will be remembered for years to come. Their communication style is more practical and businesslike than anything else, and they appreciate being dealt with in the same manner. They do not see the point in getting overexcited about frivolous things, and they are often distrustful of people who seem too excited about certain things, because they fear these people will lose interest just as quickly as they developed it, and they prefer to have people around them who can be counted on for the long haul.
