A 5th house Mercury can indicate an increased interest in creative pursuits. This is a good time to express yourself artistically or creatively.
Writing articles or books, composing music or poetry, painting, or sculpting will channel your self-expression into artistic media. You are not necessarily any more creative this year than you were last year, but you have a stronger need for self-expression. The key here is to find some positive way to use your mental abilities in expressing yourself more fully.You do not have to be artistic to do this. Generally, it is the expression itself that is more important than the means. There are many mundane media. You may plan out the landscaping around your house; you may create lesson plans for a course you are teaching; you may start a newsletter concerning something that you believe in passionately. Failure to find a good forum may mean that you risk becoming very opinionated and domineering in your personal relationships. Being pushy is a poor substitute for creative self-expression, and the desire to dominate others should be consciously avoided.
Your thoughts may center around romance and sexual encounters.
If you are involved in a strong infatuation this year, you may find it difficult to concentrate on work and studies. Romantic preoccupation is possible. You may spend a lot of time analyzing the positive and negative qualities of this interaction. Relationships formed at this time are more likely to have good verbal rapport. Intellectual stimulation and communication may play central roles in your attraction to this person. However, this does not guarantee a good emotional relationship, only that the two of you will find it easy to talk and exchange ideas.
If you are a parent, this is a good time to focus on communication with your children.
Situations involving your children will make you more aware of their mental health, educational needs, and intellectual functioning. You may need to make decisions concerning their future. If they are older, you will have to let them make their own decisions; however, this does not mean that you cannot offer an opinion.
