A thin-skinned emotional reaction can make you hypersensitive to any difficult situations that come up today.
Mars and Mercury are close together in the heavens and this can lead to heated arguments that are temporarily blind to reason.
Feelings may be deeply hurt by aggressive comments, or overbearing intellect.
Give respect and be restrained with your power over others. Any attempt to remake others, will result in bad feelings, and that will have far-reaching consequences.
If you are at the victim end of an argument, or being picked on by someone who selfish or over-using their power, do your best to hold your ground, and don’t let them see your pain.
Honor yourself for being reasonable and find comfort that you passed a test on the path towards higher evolution.

Moon Moon, Mother Moon
The moon appearing larger at sunset, and not dim but
luminous, portends fair weather for several days.

Selene: The moon-goddess; sometimes, but improperly,
called Diana, as Diana is always called the chaste huntress;
~ Brewer’s “Dictionary of Phrase and Fable.”
