Mercury Square Saturn...

starts on January 26 (using a 1 degree orb), is exact on January 26 at 8.58am in Kilmore, leaves on January 27.  Mercury at 17 degrees and 13 minutes of Capricorn, Retrograde Saturn at 17 degrees and 13 minutes of Libra.

Mercury is the planet associated with communicating in whatever form gets your message across, and being in Capricorn it seems that communication in general will have more of a serious tone than usual. Saturn usually brings up serious matters that we have to work hard at, but also brings long-lasting rewards for our efforts, so in effect we have a double-whammy 'serious' note to this energy combination.

The connection of these two planets through the square suggests a bit of stress and/or struggle between the two energies, and then a turning point being reached.  It seems that there may be a serious decision or perhaps a communication blockage that needs attention now, as well a change in attitude or understanding (which is likely to be the key to successfully handling this matter).  This may relate back to a person or situation that came into our lives when Mercury and Saturn were last conjunct back in October (8th) 2010.  Read that post here.

As usual, look to see where this aspect is falling to get a feel for what or who may be at odds... as well as looking at the houses ruled by Mercury (ones with Gemini or Virgo on the cusp), and Saturn (ones with Capricorn or Aquarius on the cusp).

If you have personal planets and/or points in Capricorn and/or Libra, then you are likely to feel this energy more strongly than others.
