There can be some confusing or disorienting energy with you today, dear Aries, with your planetary ruler in hard aspect to Neptune. You may not know where to begin regarding tackling projects, or you could experience a temporary questioning of what you’re doing or where you’re headed. Desires can be sudden or unusual, distracting you from your path, and they may be more about procrastinating than filling a deep need, so do your best to tune out distractions. However, if you have been ignoring your needs to escape or rest, or to indulge your imagination, then this aspect may very well serve as a reminder to do so. If you can rise above the frustrations of upset schedules or unreliable people and do your own thing, this can be a liberating day. It becomes far easier to focus as the day advances, which helps you escape the feeling of overwhelm that slows you down.
With today’s Mars-Neptune square, there can be some ups and downs or confusion related to friends and resources, dear Taurus. You may feel a little lacking in the areas of direction, guidance, or support temporarily. It can be tempting to assert yourself if someone is overstepping your boundaries, evasive, or absent when you need them most. Think of this aspect as a checkpoint when you’re assessing you have all the right supplies and fuels before pushing forward with your pursuits. Deflated feelings are possible, but an adjusted plan may be all the better for you. Tonight and tomorrow, your sense of what’s valuable and worth your time improves. Activities that help ground you on an emotional level fare best. Aim to reconnect with your intuition if you’ve been pushing yourself too hard or ignoring your need for rest and reflection.
With a Mars-Neptune transit today, dear Gemini, you can experience a temporary dip in motivation levels if you are unsure of your ultimate destination. You don’t absolutely need a far-reaching goal or end-game to make some progress, however. Aim to set small challenges or goals and work towards them in the meantime, and eventually, the bigger picture will fill in. Watch that you’re taking actions that serve you well and avoid those things that seem to alienate others, particularly bosses, parents, or the like, or those things that might steer your reputation off course. Transits today are murky, making it difficult to see things clearly. Too-quick actions may not be advisable with Mars in your sign in challenging aspect with Neptune in your reputation zone. Later today and into tomorrow, you’ll find it easier to find an anchor.
Aim to engage your more creative or spiritual needs today rather than taking on too many projects or commitments, dear Cancer. A Mars-Neptune square can point to some temporary deflation or discouragement. There can be some dashed hopes or moodiness to manage. The desire for something more exotic can be strong and the need for some form of escape is persistent. Schedules seem off, and so does timing in general, and aiming to be flexible is a good strategy under these conditions. You may very well end up enjoying the space and freedom delays or others’ unavailability affords you to do your own thing. Later today and into tomorrow, you feel less overwhelmed, particularly as you focus on those things that are manageable.
Today’s Venus-Saturn transit is supportive and steadying, dear Leo. While there may be some reserve in your relationships and connections, there can be an excellent feeling of constancy. Attention to strengthening projects and relationships can have long-term benefits. It’s a good time to dedicate yourself to a project or activity that requires your strong attention. You’re likely to enjoy a pleasant, steady atmosphere around you that is comfortable and satisfying. Clarity may come to a relationship, or you benefit from a helpful and constructive conversation. Old wisdom or experience may come into play. Focus on strengthening ties in the long run and be as patient as possible with others for best results now. It can feel good to consider your commitments and how you might honor them. It’s a day for recognizing the importance and value of trust in our relationships.
The Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo, and you seek mentally engaging activities. However, with Venus and Saturn harmonizing today, it’s a good time for realistic assessments related to your health, work, or financial matters. You can more clearly see what needs to be improved or changed, and making adjustments comes with few if any regrets. Meeting responsibilities feels satisfying, and you might apply wisdom or good advice with success. It’s a good time to repair or boost relationships in simple but effective ways. Showing affection through loyalty and reliability is well-supported right now. Work that requires analysis or research is likely to go especially well.
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.
