Transiting Neptune square or opposite your natal Mercury. This is a time when you are likely to have considerable difficulty in communications with others. Misunderstandings now are likely to lead to unpleasant or embarassing situations. Avoid contract negotiations if at all possible. This is one of the classic transits for being deceived, swindled or lied to, so be sure you have your facts straight and that others are being truthful to you. For obvious reasons, this is a dangerous time for business dealings.
