If you and your partner have been sending each other mixed messages lately, you’ll be relieved to know that after December 5 you’ll begin to get each other once again. Mercury, the ruler of your partnership sector, will turn direct after having been out of phase since August 12.
Mercury Retrograde cycles can typically trip up communication between you and your mate, although each one will have a different flavor. This time around it’s possible that you were trying to gauge his or her opinion around professional opportunities that have been developing for you. You appear to have been uncertain about which to take and which to ignore. Or, perhaps you had a chance to go back to work for one of your old bosses. Trying to make these decisions on your own was maddening enough, but asking your partner only to receive even more confusing advice — or none at all — probably felt like mental torture. Fortunately, after December 5, you’ll gain clarity about your professional situation and will also be able to talk to your lover again without frustration.
In other news, if you are single, it’s possible that a sudden love connection will arrive near December 27. It’ll happen out of nowhere, and may have something to do with a friend’s introduction — or it might even come from your friend. Make sure you go to whatever social events you’re invited to near this day. It’s quite possible that you’ll be swept off your feet by an unusual but very special someone.
