You could experience a struggle between personal and professional responsibilities today, dear Aries, and working on finding a better balance will be particularly helpful now. Learning about your more profound needs, desires, and ambitions can help clarify your long-term and career goals. Power struggles within the family circle or buried problems can emerge with a Mars-Pluto opposition. It can be difficult to relinquish control even if you know it’s for the best. Work or family matters can be heated and serve to rile you up. You may recognize you’ve been clinging too tightly to your objectives, and relaxing them just a little may help bring you back to a better work-life balance. With a Mercury-Neptune square also active now can find you second-guessing things as minor weaknesses seem to reveal themselves. A conversation or news received now can be misleading, and it’s best to let time tell.
Mars opposes Pluto across your communications sector today, dear Taurus, and differences in opinion can be loaded as they can represent something else. It’s possible that something hits a nerve of a deeper issue, or you are frustrated if someone doesn’t see your viewpoint. Provocative energy is likely, and you might want to sidestep confrontations. But observing and learning from frustrations and their trigger points today is wise. Aspects today tend to trigger insecurities or fears about losing someone’s admiration, or they pull up fears of making changes. Holding onto an idea too tightly now will prevent you from going forward, growing, and moving on. The best thing you can do for yourself today is to aim to let something go or to release it and get over a hump, as resentment can rob you of happiness. You’re looking at your finances and security matters differently these days. While it’s useful, today’s energies are challenging for clarity, particularly when it comes to finances and personal boundaries. You may need to deal with sneaky behavior, bluffing, or withholding information today, and it’s best to postpone big decisions or complicated topics.
People may be misinterpreting your intentions and actions again today, dear Gemini. People can be defensive and trying to prove themselves. Arguments over ownership, money, core values, or boundaries can emerge with Mars opposite Pluto. Money or support problems that may have been weighing you down could reach a turning point, but conflicts over money or possessions may disguise deeper issues. If you’ve been feeling undervalued, frustrations can come to a head now. Keep in mind that compromise would be ideal, but getting there involves giving a little, so be willing if the other side is ready to meet you halfway. Your imagination can grow, possibly to a point of excess, and it’s best to avoid making too much or too little of a person or situation. Let time tell the truth of a matter.
Buried frustrations may erupt or come to a head today, dear Cancer, particularly about your independence or freedom with Mars in your sign opposite Pluto. You have no patience for being controlled, manipulated, or coerced. It can be a little tricky, but bringing something that seems dark into the light may very well be a surprising relief. Touchiness is likely, but if you’re willing to get through it and learn something in the process, it can be a highly revealing time. With a Mercury-Neptune square also active today, it’s best to keep in mind that not all communications are likely to get through exactly as intended. However, if you let go of expectations and simply allow your mind some free rein, it’s a good time for creative visualization and pursuits.
With the Moon in your spirit sector all day, you can experience a real need for a breath of fresh air or a change of pace, dear Leo. With people in your life putting more faith in you, you’re motivated to be your best. There can be some tense spots today and tomorrow, and some stubbornness can be frustrating. Power struggles on the job might ensue, and the little things tend to irritate most, especially if there are disrupted schedules to deal with or if people are interfering with your methods or process. Seek peace and quiet away from the storm, but if you need to get something out in the open or out of your system, this may be your opportunity. Alternatively, watch for behaviors that lead to anxiety or guilt.
The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, and you tend to do more observing and investigating, dear Virgo. Getting to the root of problems or looking at a situation’s many layers can be a goal. A slow and steady pace is best right now–you’ll find things fall into place more readily. Today and tomorrow, people or circumstances can challenge you to confront important and perhaps previously buried issues in your life. You could find that you’re dealing with pressures and tensions coming from others or problems arising from within that are sources of frustration or anger. You may even be flip-flopping between a strong desire to get to the truth of an issue and a fear of doing so! It’s best to watch for a tendency to think in extremes rather than seek the middle road.
You’re more involved with others or approachable today, dear Libra, with the Moon’s transit of your partnership sector. You could feel a little dependent on others right now, but mainly in a pleasant, connected way. While you may prefer to go with the flow than make waves today, there can be some rising tensions to manage, and they’re likely to do with power or control as Mars and Pluto clash. You may feel caught in the middle. There may also be tricky issues with family and authority figures to deal with now. Everyone seems to want their way, and few are conceding, which leads to rather tense scenarios.
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 person
