You may reminisce about the past or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. Business negotiations are often in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde, with some important details not yet be available. Don't make any big decisions during this time.
Mercury conjunct Chiron suggests communications will be a source of pain. Hurtful words may include teasing, name calling and other forms of verbal abuse.
Opinions about people with mental illness and physical disabilities will also come into focus. Issues may involve abuse, discrimination and the perception some people have that disabled people are less intelligent than they are.
A more positive side to Mercury conjunct Chiron is the ability to really listen to people’s problems and understand their pain. Your words may have hurt people in the past but they can heal people now. Mercury with Chiron also gives healing hands.
