It’s time to have another think re who you’re ‘getting into bed with’ both financially and sexually! Mercury is now going backwards in your eighth house so anything related to joint financial ventures, sex and intimacy is up for debate. Joint finances refers to your salary, credit cards and loans – wherever your money is tied up with someone else’s. It can also be where it’s tied up with a partner, past or present. When Mercury goes backwards in this part of your chart, you can expect to be doing some rethinking and reconsidering re one of these subjects. There could also be confusion in one of these areas. Look at how well you are relating to people on an intimate level. If you’re keep people at arms’ length (whether by being stand-offish, or by constantly cracking jokes, for example) now is the time for you to do some serious thinking re the barriers you’re putting up. This part of your chart is also about jealousy and obsession – for some, an old jealousy problem will come back. See if you can deal better with it this time around. For others, if you know have a tendency to try to control other people, now is the time to (a) deal with the fallout from that and (b) work out a better way to carry yourself. The key with Mercury retrograde is always to let the cycle unfold without making any major decisions, if you can. Mercury retrograde usually leads to more information being sent your way so it’s best to way and see what transpires before you act. Want to learn how to create your own reality?
