Mercury affects friendships and connections, making this an ideal time to meet, mingle and network. But Mercury's potent link to Pluto influencing communication could push you to discuss only what you consider interesting or essential. You probably won't have the patience for anything that doesn't have real 'weight' to it, so small talk may need to wait for another time.
There are two strong but very different influences in play today that might mean partitioning your day off into bite size chunks. On the one hand, this is a socially engaged day, with Venus and Mercury not only aligned in your friendship sector but connecting with Pluto in your communication sector. This is a day for connecting and with Mercury and Pluto in retrograde motion, even for making up for lost time. Yet in the early days of the wind down of your old solar year and with the Sun and Moon both in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, there is also a need for time out to hear yourself think.
