Today retrograde Mercury backs into Scorpio, messing up all kids of communication. It’s a double whammy for you, since this is your seventh house of committed relationships. You’ll don your sorting hat, deciding which of your partnerships need a little clarifying. But you’ll have to be sure to watch your words, as the potential for miscommunications is sky-high. Think twice, or better yet thrice, before you articulate your concerns. Be sure to listen actively, taking time to formulate response rather than jumping on the defensive. Mercury goes forward again on November 26, so don’t make any final decisions about your love life or a business partnership before then.
