We’re less likely to compromise once messenger Mercury shifts into obstinate Taurus. We’re tempted to overreact, turning a minor disagreement into a major conflict. Unfortunately, there won’t be any winners if everyone insists on fighting to the finish.

It’s time for all you good-natured Libras to take off your velvet gloves and fight to express your individuality. Don’t make the mistake of simply acquiescing to the pressure of authority today without a good reason. Instead of relying on other people to represent your position, take responsibility for defending yourself. Owning your power isn’t easy when you are used to being a team player, but ultimately, it will be much more personally satisfying if you stand up to anyone who isn’t respectful of your feelings.

You’re not in the mood to be pushed around today; you have been stretched to your limit, and the slightest provocation might trigger your swift response.

Misdirected energy can be problematic now, but you are unbeatable when your actions align with your heart.

Even if you try to keep your feelings to yourself today, your preferences still might leak out and create a bit of a ruckus. Your friends and associates may assume you’re purposefully pushing their buttons, but this isn’t your objective. You just want everyone to understand your perspective and are tempted to pressure others to make your point. However, a gentle approach can turn an adversary into a supporter. There’s no reason to alienate your allies in order to be true to yourself.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You’re not interested in revealing your feelings unless there is a purpose for the display. However, your need to express your opinions may be compelling enough now that you will do so, even if it’s counterproductive. Although you probably know what’s best, you still might go out of your way to give someone a piece of your mind. Don’t judge yourself too harshly if you take the situation too seriously. Simply apologize for your behavior if necessary, and focus on creating positive change in the present moment.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Although you may sound quite brilliant today, your innovative ideas turn into unnecessary ultimatums if you don’t know when to stop. Don’t try to convince anyone that you have all the answers now; just state your truth and then back off. Let your words strike like lightning since they might even bring a much-needed shock of awareness to others. Your message will have greater resonance with those you’re trying to reach if you come from a place of sincerity.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your tumultuous feelings cross over into public domain today where they have the potential to upset someone who is in the vicinity. It’s not that your emotions are so outrageous; it’s just that others may be caught off guard by the sudden intensity of your rebellion, even if your behavior doesn’t seem that radical to you. Although you’re doing the right thing by expressing your heart, don’t burn any bridges behind you unless you have no intent of ever returning. Cultivate your compassion while still honoring your truth.
