With Mercury currently in the analytical sign of Aquarius, we're all feeling a bit more contemplative -- but in a rather detached way. We can better see where our feelings end and our thoughts begin, which can be extremely healthy and help us to be more self aware. With Mercury now in a retrograde phase, we're getting extra help at looking back at our issues -- even the ones that stem all the way from childhood.

At the same time, Saturn, the planet of lessons and boundaries, is moving through the complex and sometimes murky waters of Scorpio, the sign known for its intensity and overwhelming power. Aquarius and Scorpio are signs that "square" each other, meaning they're in a challenging angle that breeds self-inquiry and investigation, helping us move through any blocks in order to transform.

This planetary setup is perfect for getting to the core of a long-standing issue you may have with a family member. Even close friends who are stand-ins for family count, so don't forget them. If you notice that feelings are coming up or you're easily triggered by something minor (socks on the floor, an unwashed dish, etc.) it's time to look deeper. What does that behaviour -- deep in your heart -- reveal to you about how your loved one feels about you?

You may face fears about abandonment and betrayal now, but you can work through them, so try not to repress your emotions. Note that, as mentioned above, Mercury is retrograde, so mixed messages and arguments are possible now. Be as clear as you can and expect to have to repeat yourself a few times. You may even want to practice by writing everything down before having any important conversations. Flip the script on your relationship by thinking it through first.
