Mercury in the fifth house tends to bring anxiety in connection with love affairs, and shows that the mind is liable to become absorbed in feeling and emotion. It denotes some fatalistic affair in connection with children, with much worry and perplexity of mind concerning their affairs. When well aspected by Jupiter or Saturn, however, it is very good for speculation or enterprise. If afflicted by Mars or Uranus scandal and ill-repute in connection with love affairs is shown, and danger of separation, breach of promise actions or divorce. It also denotes trouble to the object of the affections, and the mind is generally concerned about the welfare of others who minister to the feeling and emotional side of the nature. This position of Mercury is always improved if in good aspect with the Moon.
