Three degrees separate Mercury retrograde from the large Sun, making it combust. Burned by the rays, communication will be more complex.
The mistakes of the past should serve as lessons, to avoid any repetition of the same pattern, but to do this, you need to be aware of their content, hence the importance of good communication between partners. Everything must be expressed clearly and sympathetically. Mercury retrograde will reveal this.
Be careful, your understanding of certain situations may be altered by the Sun burning Mercury. You could be mistaking bladders for lanterns and quickly pay the price. Before you get carried away, check your impressions, good or bad, in a variety of ways.
As a couple, watch your tone. If it's too authoritarian, your partner may be put off. If you're too hesitant, you'll allow your partner to conceal your desires. Be assertive. If you're single, rather than beating about the bush, use humour to open a door in the conversation.
With Mercury retrograde, communication is complex. Make sure you make yourself heard if you have orders or information to give. Otherwise, I dare to repeat instructions to make sure you've fully understood them.
Avoid getting involved in financial transactions while Mercury is retrograde. You may later discover clauses you hadn't seen or read. As far as possible, postpone new, uncontrolled transactions.
Be careful not to overestimate your strengths and possibilities. The Sun conjunct Mercury can give you a burst of overactivity that you may regret.
Talking about nothing could be the definition of the day, but sometimes it's a good idea to remake the world over a drink with friends.
