Transiting Mercury square or opposite your natal Venus. Your thinking will tend towards lighter subjects and you will not want to tackle any difficult problems at this time. This can also be a time in which your mind has a difficult time maintaining concentration. You may lack seriousness and be prone to making inappropriate jokes especially if you are normally uninhibited. Socially awkward or embarassing situations may crop up. This can be a good time for airing out your grievances as you are unlikely to push too far. Don't pay too much for the sake of peace, or too much for luxuries.
