It’s as if Mercury is waving good bye at the end of the Famous Year, 2012; a year of great transition; the alpha and omega of years. In Capricorn, an earth sign, Mercury is about practical things. There are so many opportunities and inventions still to come; songs to be written and sung, people to be healed. A good way to bring in the New Year might be to make a list of possibilities: Personal and collective. The sextile to Neptune suggests we might benefit from a bit of dreaming as well as planning. Then we need to sit with it for a while. Many things are possible but nothing is guaranteed.
