Maintaining our confidence is challenging now as we ride conflicting cosmic waves. We may already be experiencing delays on this first full day of Mars retrograde. Karmic Saturn turns retrograde today, further impeding our progress. Luckily, we receive an energetic kick from the Moon’s entry into impulsive Aries at 10:39 am EST. But a dynamic square between the cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars, stirs up relationship issues that try our patience.

You receive a boost of power from Mars today, making you think you’re fast enough to pass everyone else on the highway. However, it turns out that your car might not have enough horsepower to win the race. Your current plans could be built on an unrealistic assessment of the situation, so don’t assume that everything will automatically go your way. Ease up on the accelerator; you’ll arrive at your destination sooner if you don’t push so hard. This is not a competition; just find a sustainable pace to reach your goal.

You’re tempted to take action today so you won’t have to defend yourself later — especially if you feel that someone is attacking your values. It’s easy to get worked up over this unsettling situation, but your integrity may not really be at stake. Achieving your relationship goals could require additional time, but the delays won’t be significant if you stay flexible. Alter your path but not your destination, even if a partner’s resistance is an obstacle. Adjusting your schedule is a small price to pay for progress.

You may feel as if you’re working harder today, but not necessarily getting anything done.

No matter what, be careful about confusing your fears with what’s truly happening in your environment. For the sake of peace, channel your passion into your art.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Your natural persuasive abilities are augmented now by your idealistic vision of what’s possible.

A logical plan, along with a willingness to listen to the opinions of others, is your best assurance to get what you want.
