Dream up a lovely surprise for your partner. Use your intuition to come up with the perfect thing. Pick up groceries for a home-cooked meal from scratch. Invite them to share your latest obsession.
Handling bureaucratic details can rejuvenate a partnership. Draw upon hidden resources and talents, and keep accounts current. Get lost in a dreamy romance. Listen to a healing spirit. Nurture each other.
Talk about family finances. Compromise, especially regarding hidden treasure. Listen to all considerations, especially from elders. Maintain awareness of cash flow. Be honest to a fault. Make a future plan. Get the word out.
Discuss options. A glass ceiling is dissolving. Confusion clears, now that Mercury's direct. Communications in partnership soar to new levels. Abundance is available. Obligations weigh heavily. List the reasons you can't have what you want. Allow time for changes to manifest. It's easier to get farther, with Saturn direct. Expand your territory. Career responsibilities become clear, and the road to achieving them wide open. Fix up what you've got next few months. For about five months, revise and refine. Take another look around your home. Schedule a gathering of friends. Home is disrupted. Be respectful, or appear to be. It's true, you are wonderful. Practice.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.

Mars is the action planet, named for the warrior god in Roman mythology. It takes the fourth planet about 687 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
When Mars goes retrograde, which it does every 2 and a half years (usually for two months), thought takes precedence over overt actions, and pressure can become internalized. Stress can lead to health problems, and impulsiveness can lead to arguments and accidents. Release emotion with exercise. It's a good time to take it slower, review the plans, and re-define goals and methods. Avoid risky business, for love or money. New endeavors can stall or may not go as intended, so it's better to choose a launch date after Mars goes direct.
Mars retrograde affects each person individually according to their natal chart, but in general, Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, so these signs are especially affected.
