It’s an emotionally powerful day that can prompt conflict as warrior Mars and intense Pluto hook up in a show of passion. This fiery conjunction incites volcanic eruptions of feelings and struggles for control. Fear of loss makes matters worse unless we pay attention to our unconscious reactions because the determined Taurus Moon encourages us to be stubborn. Thankfully, the atmosphere lightens when the Moon enters flighty Gemini at 7:58 pm EST.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Your ruling planet warrior Mars aligns today with penetrating Pluto, bringing up previously hidden emotions that might seem to come out of nowhere. However, anger springs forth from the depths of your subconscious mind; it’s yours and you must own it. Avoidance tactics won’t work. Be smart and share your hurt feelings so that your negativity doesn’t turn into resentment. Bringing everything out into the light gives everyone a chance to process things and move on.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You could accidentally say something that upsets a friend today. Unfortunately, good intentions are not enough to get you through this tricky intersection. You will have to reach into your heart and find a way to express your feelings, however deeply they may be buried. Watch your tendency toward being stubborn, for inflexibility won’t help when it comes to love. You must show courage and widen your perspective, even if you believe you already know the truth.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
Even if you try to gingerly tiptoe around a delicate situation, a friend or partner may still present you with an unsolvable emotional problem today. It is unlikely that the tension will settle back down until you face the music. You must roll with the incoming waves of emotions now, but remember that you’ll be feeling more at ease in just a few days. Don’t withdraw, as you can learn a lot about yourself from others at this time.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Relationships can be a source of pain now, yet opening your heart in the presence of potential hurt could earn the rewards of intimacy. This is not an easy process, for your tendency is to protect your sensitive feelings from being wounded. Showing your vulnerability to someone you love is the first step on the journey to healing today.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
Your energy may be so flamboyant now that it can get in the way of your well-meant intentions. Others might not have the fortitude to stand up to your emotional onslaught today, allowing you to steamroll right over them. You are slated to become victorious in a hard-fought battle, but you could be the long-term loser unless you honor what others are feeling, too. Listen closely so that you can establish common goals that allow everyone to play a part.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
You are on a wild emotional ride now as you feel the passion one moment and then detachment the next. These extreme feelings might be quite upsetting; it’s important to get enough perspective on what’s happening so you don’t go too far over the edge today. Try to stay in the middle of the road, for that is where you can best respond to the oncoming changes.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
You might be facing a power struggle in your immediate environment today that involves coworkers or family members. It may begin harmlessly enough, but by the time you realize what’s happening, someone has already made their move. As counterintuitive as it seems, relinquishing control now could benefit you in the long run. Don’t take on any battles that you cannot win.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Your two ruling planets, Pluto and Mars, are quite capable of fighting when they must. Today, these two planets come together to teach you another lesson about intensity, although you are no stranger to strong feelings. On one hand, this can turn on your love light, but on the other hand, you could become dangerously distant. Above all, use your focused willpower to keep your good intentions intact.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Today’s alignment of hot-headed Mars and cold-blooded Pluto in your 2nd House of Self Esteem reminds you that not every thought is light and optimistic. Be strong now and reach into the dark and mysterious realms to discover the real magic. Even if you are frightened of what you don’t understand, remember that the unknown transforms into an important ally as your awareness grows.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
You are showing your battle scars now with great pride as the Mars-Pluto conjunction occurs in your 1st House of Personality. You want everyone to know what you have endured to survive and thrive. But others are not eager to look at your old emotional wounds — and rightly so. Go ahead and say what you need in order to clear the air today, but then be ready to move on. Stay in the present moment, rather than dwelling in your past.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Social interactions are a source of unavoidable intensity today. Although you certainly gain a lot from conversations with friends, there is a severe price to pay. You may be required to set aside an important part of yourself now just to participate with the group. Be careful not to hold on to any annoyances or past regrets. It’s up to you to let go of whatever stands between you and happiness.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Someone’s power play might sweep you up in a volatile drama today, yet if your intentions are for the higher good you could come out a winner. Navigation can be a bit tricky, though, for as soon as you act with selfish motivations you will lose. However, if you keep the health of your family — or even the entire community — as your top priority, then you’ll be able to move mountains on your way to great success.
