I feel that for a person to be successful at building community open communication is key. We must not be scared to be direct and talk about anything and everything that needs to be discussed. Sometimes this may make someone uncomfortable, but it seems to be necessary. When we are open and honest with each other we will be better able to deal with the issues facing us now.
With Mercury in Retrograde this is going to be a bit bumpy for a few more weeks... open communication is hard enough without cosmic energies....and no I am not WOO-WOO here..... It's a fact. All sorts of things go screwy around full moons, retrograde planets, etc. Just depends on how tuned in to nature you are.
Open communication is always the goal. Honesty, Openness, and respect. This is hard enough between 2 people who love, respect and care deeply about each other, let alone people relating in community. Centering, balance and clearly expressed boundaries are also a must and part of the package. This is can also be made more difficult with the male/female dynamic. Men and Woman talk, think, respond and feel differently. It's just so. How we experience a situation, internalize and respond adds layers of complexity to the most simple of things.
To have open communication, there must be a willingness to work on care and deep respect for one another. Then things will strive towards harmony.
I knew that the moon affects behavior, but I never thought about the planets. what do you mean about retrograde planets?
I think that it affects everyone whether they realize it or not.

Look up mercury in retrograde. It is a common source of electrical and communication--telephone, email, personal--issues. The planets movement and celestial location must have an effect--like our moon--on the physical substrates of our world.
Also. Low pressure weather systems effect our moods and brain activity whether we realize it or not. A storm system was moving in yesterday and wow...lots of people were experience mood/memory/emotional disturbances.... A good time to chill out. Honor ourselves and do some self-care. ...And no, I am not particularly woo-woo. Just an observer of nature...Gaia and human....
