We are at the beginning of Mercury retrograde at this time, which lasts from December 3 to December 22. During this time, you may feel bad, especially when it comes to your love life, since Mercury retrograde affects communication. On top of that, vacations can already be a challenging time for relationships; in fact, they are the most common time of year when couples separate . If you think about it, this makes sense: there is additional stress (work, family, etc.), possible money problems (you probably spend a lot on people's gifts, and you may want to take some time off, but you can not afford it), and when you throw a loved one into the mix, you may even feel more stressed, not less.

"A key to survival is not making concrete decisions during retrograde Mercury," says Bustle Linda Furiate, Astrology Consultant, Healthy Habits Expert, Reiki I and II, Inspirational Guide and Founder of Of Universal Mind. "It is best to wait for last minute changes in our schedules, etc. Be flexible with your time and your attitude If a couple knows and can anticipate the arrival of retrograde mercury, it is best to initially communicate their wishes and needs beforehand. of the retrograde, but again, be flexible, since things will probably change during retrograde. "
That said, this is how common relationship problems that arise during retrograde Mercury can survive.

"A new relationship could suffer some setbacks if the two are not really aware of how easy it is for things to get misinterpreted during the retrograde phase," says Rayne. "Unless both of you are born into retrograde Mercury, then this period of time can be very complicated." It might be a good idea to make a verbal arrangement to your partner that during the retrograde phase, which lasts 20 days, in case of disagreement. Both agree to give each other the benefit of the doubt, listen and nurture each other and not make quick decisions.The best advice for couples is to review the activities that brought them closer in the past, the things to do that they really enjoy together.
