MERCURY RETROGRADE begins today *blech* ends October 14th. This will affect thinking, perception, communication, legal issues, commerce, education, and transportation. Marriages already on the rocks will need to try extra hard during this time as they may have an even harder time understanding each other than normal.
It usually is not a good time to begin new projects, but can be a great time to complete them, to consider alternatives, and the like. Focus on maintaining, meditation, and brainstorming for the future.
Above all, be prepared for the misunderstandings on the way. Be open, gentle and understanding in such cases to help relationships of all types run more smoothly during this period.
