Friday, Feb 8th, 2013
Our words seem intense today, yet we may actually be a bit detached from our emotions. It's easy to get all worked up and say things that provoke petty conflicts. Thankfully, the Moon's shift into logical Aquarius at 2:16 pm EST helps us maintain a healthy perspective on our current circumstances. A cool, analytical approach tempers the combative conjunction between messenger Mercury and aggressive Mars, which can heat up our interactions.
(Mar 21 – Apr 19)
It's difficult to sit quietly in the back of the room because irrepressible Mars, your key planet, aligns with Mercury the Communicator. You know what you want to say and you think you can inspire others into action. Unfortunately, your message might be confusing unless you have all your facts in order. Avoid overreacting by counting to five before opening your mouth. But don't worry; you will get the chance to share what's needed when the time is right.
(Apr 20 – May 20)
You might be the one in the group who stands up and speaks your mind today. Fortunately, you're able to draw on poetic images and creative visions that are normally beyond your reach. However, you may not feel comfortable with your forceful words, for they can offend your delicate sensibilities even as you say them. Nevertheless, don't talk yourself out of sharing what's on your mind. Your friends and associates will appreciate your honesty and your attempts to think outside of the box.
(May 21 – Jun 20)
You may be feeling upset at the way things have gone down at work, but there isn't much you can do about it today, except talk about it. Expressing your concern with compassion wins you the support you seek as your key planet Mercury joins energetic Mars in your 10th House of Status. Use any means necessary to get your message out there, even if it means shouting it from the rooftop. You could be surprised with the positive response you receive if you are clear and direct in your delivery.
(Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are inspired to fight for what you want today, and chances are that you may actually get it. If you ever considered writing a letter about a familiar gripe or going to your boss about a lingering issue, this is the day you've been waiting for. However, you could inadvertently offend someone with your uncharacteristically forceful approach. It's easier to restrain your anger by softening your words than it is to deal with the mess you can make by being carried away with your emotions.
(Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You may feel lighter on your feet today because there's less responsibility weighing on your shoulders. Nevertheless, you're not in the mood to play games, and someone who gets in your way might be surprised with the speed and fury of your response. However, defending yourself by going on the offense isn't as effective now as revealing your true feelings. This time words speak louder than actions.
(Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Sparks may fly if someone oversteps your boundaries today. It really doesn't matter who you are with now; you might feel as if others are trying to get your goat. You can respond to these situations with a display of anger if you feel the need to protect yourself against the apparent attack. However, the best strategy is to chill out and not take yourself so seriously. Allow a day or two for your perspective to evolve and then readdress the issue.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Although it's always a good idea to stick with the facts, how you deliver the message is just as important today as what you say. When you put the data you've been working on into the report or email, make certain you don't overstate your position. Even if you are giving a verbal presentation, you can get hotter and more fired up than intended. Naturally, you're not looking to make any enemies, so keep reminding yourself to tone down your emotions. A subtle touch accomplishes more than a heavy hand.
(Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You have the sweet power of persuasion at the tip of your tongue now. Messenger Mercury aligns with your key planet Mars, adding the strength of conviction to your words. Just don't come on too strong or you could defeat your own purpose before you even have a chance. However, acknowledging your emotional intensity enables you to communicate your vision in a gentler and more compassionate manner.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
It may feel as if something isn't quite right, but you can't put your finger on the source of the problem. You might be afraid that you won't get your needs met, even if satisfaction is within reach. Some event in the past comes back to haunt you today and you could become discouraged before you even ask for what you want. Remember that this is not history repeating itself. Push through your fears by staying in the here and now.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Quicksilver Mercury catches up with warrior Mars in your 3rd House of Communication today, making it difficult for you to hold your punches. If you have experienced an injustice or are angry with someone, you might be more aggressive than you intend. Pay attention to the tone of your words now because you will be more persuasive with a firm but gentle approach to drive home your point.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
You may be more emotional than you prefer when the evocative Moon enters your sign today. Even if you try to avoid complicated feelings, you might be overwhelmed by your reactions now. Don't resist your changing moods just because they make you uncomfortable; relax and take a ride on the water-slide of life. Things will lighten up after this weekend's New Moon, enabling you to regain the clarity that comes from an objective perspective.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
You aren't often this pushy, but you are ready to say what needs to be said now as chatty Mercury lines up with feisty Mars in your sign. However, you may not clearly know what you want to communicate because your thoughts are muddled by secret desires. Tone down your rhetoric until you decide your next move. In the meantime, do what you can to untangle your wild imagination from your rational intellect.
