Marching in a brass band may be your idea of fun for a group or family outing today, because you really want to get everyone up and moving. Of course, you wish they would pay attention as you direct the show. But Mars is a close traveling companion with the Moon now, so you definitely need to soften your message. Music can soothe frayed nerves, yet it will probably be more effective to lower the volume so others don’t cover their ears and miss out on what you are saying.
You aren’t happy if someone bullies you, but defending yourself is likely a common event with your stubborn nature. Unfortunately, you may not be that comfortable handling this particular situation today. It’s easier to hide your anger than to confront the origin of the problem. Keep in mind that this is not a cowardly act. Your self-restraint is wise now; otherwise you could lose control and create additional damage instead of leaving well enough alone.
You need to stay hyper-vigilant or your current intensity will appear overly aggressive to others. You might even think that you are being extremely logical today, only to have someone tell you that your ideas are impossible to follow. Instead of explaining every little detail, speak softer and say less. You really don’t have to use that many words to get your point across. But you may have to wait until Mercury goes direct before you are completely understood.
You might surprise others with your ability to defend your choices today. You may be willing to listen, but once you’ve heard what someone else has to offer, your reaction can be strong and swift. Although you are more aware of others now, be careful about diluting the strength of your message by attempting to cover too much unfamiliar ground all at once.
Putting your best ideas forward is not an alien concept to you, but today there is so much expressive energy floating around that you might not know when to stop. Your confidence tempts you to be so assertive that you can easily offend even your strongest allies. It will be much easier if you remember that dispersive Neptune’s magnifying lens is making everything you say sound louder than it actually is. A laid-back approach will take you further now than an arrogant one.
Interactions seem overly dramatic now that you are approaching a real turning point in your relationships. Someone’s negative thoughts boil over and then everything becomes quiet. But don’t mistake less noise for less intensity; it could be just the opposite. Don’t allow yourself to feel so much anger that you say things you don’t really mean. Withdraw your energy until you have regained your strength and composure.
You are such a natural people-pleaser that sometimes you can be overly concerned with making everyone else happy. But you have six planets in your 7th House of Relationships today, indicating that you could blurt out something straight from your intuition without thinking about the impact of your words. Don’t let anyone stand in your way; setting well-defined boundaries can assure healthier relationships in the future.
Now that courageous Mars, your traditional planetary ruler, is in your 6th House of Employment, you are able to start new tasks at work. Unfortunately, follow-through will become a problem if you don’t keep up your momentum. Once you slow down, you could lose track of your direction, so ask your friends and associates to either lend a helping hand or simply get out of your way.
Even if your current message sounds critical, don’t expect others to share your concerns today. Although your friends know that you can wax philosophical, they still may become less patient as you enthusiastically ramble on about something that’s significant only to you. Your ideas are flowing fast and furious now; it’s hard to tell which ones are worth pursuing, so don’t become too attached to any one thought until you see how it stands up to the test of time.
You feel encouraged to wield your power today, but you could easily overdo it. The idea of proving your authority can be so enticing now that you may lose sight of your original intent. Success does not stem from being in control; reaching your goals is dependent on cooperation and innovation, and not hierarchy and tradition. Remember, the whole is greater than the sum of its individual parts.
Positive thinking is a powerful force that can motivate others, but you might take it too far today. Blind optimism won’t be of much use at all. If someone believes that you can’t discern facts from fiction, there’s a good chance that he or she will lose faith in your entire message. Muster support for your plan by being as realistic as possible. Everyone wants to hear good news, but it’s even more important for you to tell the truth.
You’re eager to create a new strategy for increasing your income with forceful Mars now traveling through your 2nd House of Money. You may have a lot of enterprising ideas about how to increase your cash flow, but aren’t sure that any of them will actually work. However, dreamy Neptune’s long-term presence in your sign can sap your confidence, so don’t be afraid to ask for support from others. Relying on good advice from a trustworthy companion helps you determine a sensible course of action.
