Mercury is transiting through 6th (but with vedha of Mars) and then 7th house.

Home, Family and Domestic Environment: Disagreement with elders in the family is indicated. You are being restless and are less likely to heed to anyone advise, not just the elders/parents and siblings but even your spouse (although problems with spouse do seem to be lower in comparison to others). This fiery temperament seems to be the root cause of all the problems. In order to correct the potential damage, you will have a lot of explaining and communication to do. Relationship with elder siblings will be further strained. Those looking for love will be able to meet someone new with potential of a long term relationship, especially in 2nd half.

Travel: Long distance travel will be good in 1st half. While it will continue to bring luck, they will create problems during 2nd half of the month.

Health: 1st half of the month indicates that health will in general be good, boosted due to good immunity. Be careful with hip related injuries and muscular problems in general. Be careful while exercising. Avoid circumstances that can cause accidents.

Finance, Business & Job: At the place of business, 1st half of the month will be better than 2nd. There can be serious differences with partners in business, with someone or other indulging in unethical behavior, and it could even be you. Even otherwise, there can be differences of opinion with teachers, mentors and superiors. Transfers or unnecessary journeys can be indicated for those in job. A lot of public relations work is required during this transit. Involve your spouse/partner for any land dealing, which will be auspicious. Gains at the place of work are indicated, but money flow will continue to be erratic.
