Defending our beliefs sounds like an admirable activity, but things might quickly grow out of hand. Even if our intentions are honorable, our impatience with others could prompt us to speak with a combative edge. Cerebral Mercury opposes forceful Mars today, tempting us to engage in a battle of wits. But our words may sound aggressive, especially if we’re in denial about our feelings since the intense Scorpio Moon can drive our emotions deeper.

You tend to express what’s on your mind without hesitation, but you need to be extra careful today before opening your mouth or you may face unpleasant consequences. You might have so much to say about a particular topic that it comes across as if you’ve been suppressing it for a while. However, you haven’t necessarily been holding back; it’s just that you’re ready to throw caution to the wind now. Thankfully, simply considering the ramifications of your words and your actions could save you from an uncomfortable situation.

As much as you might want to compromise today, you can still be pretty stubborn when it comes down to something that matters. You may act in a diplomatic manner, but you could annoy someone if you try to gloss over the difficulties without answering the tough questions. Decide what is more important now — your ego or your peace of mind. Once you make your choice, your next move will be obvious.

When push comes to shove, you cleverly start to plan your escape route. You don’t necessarily enjoy direct confrontation unless it is done in the spirit of mutual respect. However, there may be an irrepressible emotional issue that ripples to the surface today. Whether or not it’s a smart idea to pursue resolution doesn’t seem to matter because you’re ready to rumble. Don’t be the victim of circumstance; use your powers of self-restraint to avoid an unnecessary meltdown. Sometimes the best offense is to just walk away.

You need to pay attention to your thoughts because what you don’t say can be a source of trouble. Your inner voice is attempting to convince you to communicate a significant message to someone at work. You may come very close to opening a can of worms, leaving you with a real mess to clean up. On the other hand, if you say nothing, your hurt could turn to anger and resentment now, which isn’t any better. Seek the elusive middle path for the best possible results.

Your thoughts are quite loud today — maybe even too noisy for your own good. You can irritate others if you don’t let them complete their sentences before you respond to what they haven’t yet said. They might even falsely assume that you’re not interested in sharing the spotlight. From your point of view, it’s just a matter of expediency. You want to take the fastest route to the finish line. Paradoxically, if you slow down and listen now, you will have a real shot at finishing first.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You can execute nearly any mental maneuvers like a skilled general today. But be careful about coming out with all guns blazing because revealing too much aggression has a funny way of backfiring. Your key planet Mercury opposes warrior Mars now so it’s wise to rely on your intellect rather than direct action. Fortunately, your sharp verbal and analytical skills will serve you well as long as you don’t lose your temper. Cool your jets and think twice before you speak once.

Although your friends and associates may be extremely nice to you, something is still bothering you enough to trigger an emotional response. Thankfully, you probably will exhibit enough wisdom to keep your negative feelings to yourself. Instead, dissipate the emotional energy by working it off doing chores and buzzing around like a busy bee. Meanwhile, you still might feel angry, even if it seems inappropriate. Moderate your reaction and say as little as possible until you have things back in perspective. Better safe than sorry now when it comes to sharing your heart.

You are drawn into the mesmerizing mysteries of your own imagination today. Anything beyond your five senses is a captivating attraction, luring you down a metaphorical rabbit hole. However, you may be seeking hidden meanings where there just aren’t any, and your frustration can make you cranky. Even if you feel a bit paranoid now, don’t blame anyone else for the images arising from your subconscious. Just sit back and enjoy the show.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your thoughts are zipping around today, possibly moving so fast that you can’t even finish one idea before you jump to the next one. Others may criticize you for your sloppy thinking, but their negativity only irritates you since you were hoping for their support. Instead of posturing to defend your ideas, use the feedback you receive to help sharpen your perceptions and improve your plans. There is a distinct advantage to being a team player now rather than trying to prove you can do everything on your own.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You want to bring a serious thought out into the open, but you fear there will be serious fallout from what you have to say. You might have been hurt emotionally and it’s still difficult to express your pain. You may be mad at someone, but you don’t relish hurting their feelings, too. Naturally, you think through the conversation beforehand so your message will be both clear and fair. The only problem is that once you begin to talk, you quickly go off script. Relax; everything will be alright if you speak from your heart and not your head.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You may feel as if your energy is all backed up like a sewage system in a commercial for a 24-hour emergency plumber. You make the call, but the plumber’s phone number has been disconnected. Thankfully, your current situation is not nearly as bad as it seems now. However, your panicky reactions could be a large part of the problem. Even if this seems like a weird time, it’s best not to do anything too drastic. Trusting your intuition is more helpful in the long run than jumping to an erroneous conclusion that just makes matters worse.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
There’s no reason to play the role of a victim today. If reality is giving you a hard time, simply acknowledge your part in the current drama. The truth is that the present circumstances are unfolding with your participation and in some unknown way according to your plan. Even if you feel overwhelmed, remember you can methodically navigate your way through these crazy times as long as you don’t expect everything to change overnight.
