Today’s energies tend to stir your passions or your need for action, dear Aries. Especially as the day advances, there’s a tendency to go a little too far with this as we head toward a Mars-Jupiter square. Watch for making too-quick decisions that happen just for the sake of doing something. There can be a sudden and powerful urge to set things right with money, earn more, or take on an ambitious project. While the courage and confidence to get things going are great, you should tame impulses to go too far or spend too much. There is a bit of a gambler in you today, but it might instead be about defending yourself if others are not showing their respect. Impulsive and over-the-top energy aside, this can be a decent time to stretch your mind and consider possibilities that you wouldn’t imagine on another day.
Energy levels are more robust these days with Mars in your sign, dear Taurus, but Mars is heading into a square to Jupiter today, generating courageous and bold energy. However, the tendency to go over the top can be an agitating factor, potentially ruining a good thing, and it’s hard to keep a lid on it! Your independence and freedom are certainly more important to you in recent times. Something can be exaggerated, particularly with your reputation or career. Any activity that stifles or limits can be hard to take under this transit. Friction with others is possible, but it may not be worth pursuing in the end, so do what you can to keep things moderate. Telling the truth is important to you, but doing so thoughtfully is just as vital. It’s not the best time for activities that feel lifeless and dull. You can feel ready to assert yourself, but it’s all too easy to blow your luck by pushing too far with it, and it’s best to watch for overdoing things. Impatience is another way you might get in over your head. Aim to keep things moderate, but do consider ways to stretch your mind to consider new possibilities. The Moon spends the day in your sign, boosting your visibility and emotional barometer further.
There can be a difference in opinion that sticks with you and subtly brings you down today, dear Gemini. Or, feeling a tad in the dumps and uncertain of yourself is possible with Mercury in minor challenging aspect to Chiron. Even so, these feelings might help you to aim higher later. It’s a good time to check your facts and get caught up. Avoid major decision-making, if possible, until confidence returns. The Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, signaling the need to restore your energy, pull back, and heal. Discoveries about your inner world can be exciting and motivating, and a sudden urge to break from the past can come on now. Find ways to seek more of what you want from your life while also taking care of the feelings of people you hold dear.
It’s a good idea to slow yourself down to better understand your needs today, dear Cancer. There can be sensitivity to issues that might be brewing in your private life. While ironing out these differences seems logical, you may not have the emotional bandwidth to do so, and it makes sense to take a break, which doesn’t mean you’re not making progress. Not everything has an immediate resolution. For your own sake, try to let things go and avoid getting wound up over small problems. The Moon spends the day in your sector of dreams, plans, wishes, and friends, motivating you to connect with your happiness goals or with others. Insecurities or self-doubt can play with your interactions, but it’s a fine day for discovery and experimentation.
Aim to discern between feelings that come from a place of insecurity and those that come from your heart today, dear Leo. You might feel that something is leading to a dead-end, and you may want to investigate your alternatives. However, be careful not to jump into action based on current frustrations. This week brings on some rather rebellious energy, and there can be some doubts about recent convictions today. They’re temporary. The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and focusing on goals or setting objectives can be most satisfying on an emotional level–you may very well catch a wave of inspiration. Changing attitudes towards the expectations or opinions of others can lead you to want to do something out of the ordinary. Solo or pioneering efforts can be most attractive right now.
The Moon’s transit of your busy solar third house today stimulates your curiosity, dear Virgo. Mercury, your planetary ruler, moves into your work and health sector today. Until March 15th, you might frequently focus on and perhaps fret about the details of your life. Your thoughts and conversations often turn to work, health, and practical matters. It’s a decent time to learn new skills, particularly practical ones, and seek information that helps you improve your work, health, routines, and habits. Haste makes waste later today, as Mercury and Mars form a square. This transit might convince us we need to rush our actions or words when we may only need to think differently. Differences of opinion can escalate quickly, or disagreements can occupy too much space in your mind. On the other side of the coin, problem areas may be so glaring that you’re ready to do something about them and finally resolve a long-standing issue. Just be sure not to move so quickly that you trip over yourself. It’s best to avoid rushing conversations, trips, or projects.
Mercury moves into harmony with your sign after spending time tucked away in your home sector, dear Libra, and it can feel quite liberating as you become less guarded. With Mercury now in your entertainment, romance, and pleasure sector, it’s more comfortable and natural to express your ideas and opinions. You’re more communicative and friendly during this cycle that lasts until March 15th, and you’re inclined to seek intellectual entertainment or mental stimulation. There can be a stronger need for communications and movement in a romantic relationship. Later today, a theme of impatience or disagreement can emerge, although it’s rather quick to evaporate. It’s best not to speak too soon or without thinking while it lasts, as what you say may not represent how you feel. Disruptions now can stir up new ideas, but it’s best to watch for abrupt moves to avoid complications. If you are impatient with others instead of assertive and direct, then you run the risk of unnecessary stress.
Mercury begins its transit of the sector of your solar chart that rules heart, home, and family, dear Scorpio. Thought processes are inward and intuitive during this cycle that lasts until March 15th. There can be a lot to learn about (or through) family and close loved ones in the weeks ahead. Thoughts and conversations often turn to domestic affairs, family concerns, or the past. You are not as communicative in the outside world, and you may not feel quite as understood or “heard” at this time. You may be a little more guarded than usual with your thoughts and ideas. However, it’s another story in your personal life, which is far busier. Later today, there can be some tensions if you give in to pressures to push a matter or to rush through things. There can be some abruptness in communications or actions, which might lead to unnecessary complications. Kept under check, you may find ways to break out along a new path of expression. Try not to rush things, and don’t let others boss you around, and you’ll have a better chance of resolving problems.
Mercury completes its transit of your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and now enters your communications sector. As the planet of communications, it feels right at home there! This cycle that lasts until March 15th helps you make sharper assessments and gain some mental clarity. It encourages reaching out, making connections, picking up new interests and skills, and sharing your ideas. Learning, teaching, studying, and conversations flow naturally now. Later today, Mercury forms a hard aspect to Mars, which can generate some tension if you give in to pressures to rush something through. Impatience can be a problem, particularly with ideas. Simplifying or focusing on one thing at a time may help. Watch for hasty moves and jumping too quickly to conclusions. Slowing down just a little can ultimately get you where you want to go, if not faster, more smoothly.
Mercury moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will stay until March 15th. This influence is beneficial for your practical affairs–you’re bringing more intelligence and attention to matters related to finances, valuables, possessions, and security or comfort. These very things can also be strongly on your mind in the weeks ahead! You can pick up useful, practical information, mainly because this is the kind of information you seek most. Later today, Mercury and Mars form a challenging square aspect, and it’s best not to rush conclusions or statements. It’s far easy to say something you later regret under this influence. It may not be easy to relax temporarily, but tension might push you to take care of something you’ve let go. Taking something as an intellectual challenge may be your best bet. Moderation and patience are key, even if they’re difficult to put into practice.
The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, inclining you to nurture your ambitions today, dear Aquarius. You’re especially aware of your influence and reputation now. Also today, Mercury enters your sign, and until March 15th, you’re finding your voice and making snappier decisions. It’s a self-starting and sometimes restless cycle. You may need to put a little extra effort into making time to relax. Otherwise, it’s a strong period for mental clarity. You prefer to take the lead when it comes to mental or intellectual tasks rather than consult others or collaborate. While Mercury transiting your sign is a mostly helpful influence, it forms a square to Mars today, and you should watch for the tendency to jump the gun. It’s best not to rush now — problems may result from pushing something too quickly. Try not to give in to pressures to say or do something in haste. It’s also possible that family or home matters can conflict with your plans, or people close to you may be annoyed by your attention to other things. There may be a disagreement that requires putting egos aside to resolve.
Mercury begins its transit of your privacy sector today, dear Pisces. Until March 15th, your decision-making skills and thought processes tend to be more intuitive, inward, or solitary. It’s a good cycle for processing recent experiences, as well as for reasoning your way through issues that you’ve left unfinished or pushed to the side. You can arrive at a greater understanding of your life, and you might help others with words of advice and wisdom. You’re looking at the past from a new perspective and paying more attention to your private life. Even so, Mercury forms a challenging aspect to Mars later today, and it can fire you up to take care of a problem area. However, it’s better to avoid rushing words or actions now. Unresolved matters can weigh on your mind, which can distract you or incline you to rush through communications. Tense or rushed speech can, in turn, lead to unnecessary complications or misunderstandings. There might also be competitiveness with others that irritates rather than motivates. Try not to put plans into motion because you’re impatient–wait until you’re confident and have time to put more thought into them.
