This along with the retrogression of Mercury in Libra reveals that whatever negatives trends have been showing in your life will turn positive with your efforts and luck. Your professional arena will not be progressive despite lots of efforts. Therefore, it will be beneficial for you to be organized and well planned, matching your efforts to the demand of the situation. Proceed with a cool mind and clear professional perspectives. Let things pass in the usual procedure and avoid any new implementation or change in professional prospects.

Personal front will not be rosy either as confrontations and disputes without any reason will pop up, creating illusions in your marriage. If you are single, remain cautious in forming new relationships or friendships as you will need more attention and time to understand the other person well, and vice-versa.

The retrogression of Mercury indicates that you will display a heightened sense of emotions which will create emotional chaos and it will make communication more difficult as you will not readily agree about any issue. Every word you communicate will have the tendency to carry an emotional import, at times beyond the realm of the practical.

Things to keep in mind:

The only way to get out of this emotional web and flow of loud emotions will be to communicate clearly your doubts to your partner rather than keeping your emotions trapped within yourself.
