Capricorn, Mercury goes retrograde on Monday in your area of career and public image. Make these next three weeks about taking care of old business and finishing the work you’ve started. Be cautious in your approach to authority. Misunderstandings may come up, so be patient and try not to take things too personally. Midweek, Mercury will come into a tense alignment with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. You’re stripping away the layers of your self-image that get between your real self and the world. This can affect your professional life in ways you never intended. Be patient with your process and stay true to it. We close the week with a stretching alignment between the Sun and Chiron, the wounded healer, shedding some light on the healing power of going deeper into your ancestry.
