Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
A Mercury retrograde in Scorpio means that it’s a network check for you. On the surface, it may seem like I’m talking about the regular glitches that can happen with digital equipment during a retrogrizzle. But that’s not all that I mean. I’m also talk-ing about a time to look over who’s in your network of friends, compadres and col-leagues. The general astrological wisdom on you is that y’all are utilitarian. This would suggest that you “use” people. I think this is mostly BS, and perhaps you do too. You’re down with anybody who’s about moving up and evolving.  If they can’t keep up with that, then you’re going to move on. So Mercury may shine a flashlight on all the people who are ready to keep up in motion, the people who need a push from you and those who are staying stuck.
