You might use this period to sort out the important details of your everyday life.

This transit, lasting until December 6th, brings on a livelier, more communicative home or personal life. Venus just headed into the same sector yesterday, and Mercury’s move today puts even more focus on your domestic world. In a worldly sense, you may not be at your very best when it comes to expressing your ideas and garnering support for them, but personally, you are communicating with more ease and pleasure. You are more able to discuss matters in a rational, objective manner, and this makes it an excellent time to get things out in the open with loved ones.

You’re thinking about your long-term security and projects that have the potential to perform for you for years to come.

Mercury moves into your communications sector today, where it’s well-suited and also comes alive. The cycle ahead, lasting until December 6th, is good for expressing yourself, learning, studying, and socializing. While it’s not the best time to focus and concentrate on a particular subject, diversifying can work to your benefit for now.
