March 21-April 19
Your words are likely to fly fast and loose today whether you want them to or not. Messenger Mercury in your subconscious sector is facing Mars in your communications sector, so it will be easy for you to say things you don’t really mean. It’s hard to consider your words before they leave your mouth. Be very diligent about this task in your interactions; otherwise, you could end up having quite a few regrets at the end of the day.
April 20-May 20
You may want to go have fun, but it won’t necessarily be easy. You’re in a social mood as Mercury flies through your outgoing 11th house, but that energy is shaken up when the cosmic communicator squares Mars in your financially focused 2nd house. Everyone else is doing their thing, but it looks like you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and get to work. If you feel a little envious, wait for the satisfaction that you will feel afterwards.
May 21-June 20
Pushing too hard will have a negative impact today. You’re more than ready to move up the ladder when your native ruler, Mercury, visits your 10th house of ambition, but a square to Mars in your own sign will push you forward so hard it’ll push other people away. It’s okay to be ambitious and know what you want, but remember: sometimes it’s best to keep your inner fire to yourself, unless you want people to be intimidated by you.
June 21-July 22
Your ideas are going to be larger than life today, but getting them off the ground is another story. You’re pondering the possibilities as Mercury makes its annual visit to your noble 9th house, but you might feel surprisingly constrained as this speedy planet makes a rough square to Mars. Perhaps some old feelings of insecurity threaten to slow you down, or perhaps you feel that you are not properly equipped for a new feat. Hold your horses, adventures can wait.
July 23-August 22
Today you may feel like you are living in a mystery novel while everyone else is in a crazy comedy. Mercury in your eighth house gives you a pretty serious outlook, which is fine for getting down to business and making major changes, but it also challenges the action planet Mars in your social eleventh house, so your friends may want to come out to play . You may find this silly or superfluous, but a little fun won’t hurt. Relax and enjoy!
August 23-September 22
Someone might say something or do something to get in the way of your work today, Virgo. People take on added importance as your native ruler, Mercury, moves through your relationship sector, but a difficult square to Mars in your career-focused 10th house could have someone complaining that you’re not there. Focused enough on them. If you’ve given your full attention to your work, then maybe they’re right, but if they’re being selfish or foolish, take their words with a grain of salt.
September 23-October 22
You are focused on the here and now until something in the world catches your eye. Mercury is in your grounded 6th house, helping you tackle all the little tasks ahead of you, but a combustible alignment with Mars in your expansive 9th house will try to lure you with more exciting prospects. Whether these far-off hypotheticals are really worth it is one thing, but don’t chase a mirage that will quickly fade while your actual responsibilities lie undone.
October 23-November 21
Self-expression might seem like an incredibly serious topic today. You’re prepared to put yourself out there where people can see you as Mercury moves through your fame-loving 5th house, but an awkward square to Mars in your all-or-nothing 8th house could make you too forceful in your desire for recognition. Don’t try to force anyone to support you, because that certainly won’t impress anyone. Instead, focus on doing your thing – the results will speak for themselves.
November 22-December 21
Just because you want to keep something to yourself doesn’t mean other people will let you. You’re deep in your feelings as Mercury visits your emotional fourth house, but a difficult angle with Mars in your relationship sector could result in someone prying into your personal affairs or pushing your buttons, even if they don’t mean to. Try to be clear about your boundaries, and give yourself grace if you overreact emotionally when you’re just trying to be honest.
December 22-January 19
Getting things done can feel like pulling teeth today. There’s a powerful but useless square between Mercury in your busy 3rd house and Mars in your responsible 6th house, which could throw you off track. While you’re busy, it may seem like you’re accomplishing a lot, but when you take a step back, you may realize that you didn’t get as much done as you thought. Avoid distractions and tackle one thing at a time.
January 20-February 18
Today you may find yourself trying to buy happiness. With Mercury in your income sector, you’re more focused on your finances and what they can get you, but a square to Mars in your pleasure sector could cause you to mix messages. Yes, a treat here and there can be a nice little pick-me-up, but don’t mistake it for something long-lasting. If you really want to find fulfillment, it won’t come in a shopping bag, so try to widen your search radius.
February 19-March 20
You have an extra touch of fire today, Pisces, but you will have to be careful how you handle it. You’re prone to speaking your mind as messenger Mercury visits your sign, but the cosmic communicator will also take on Mars in your emotional sector, so others might find you pretty harsh when you think you’re just being clear. It would be wise to avoid important conversations for now, as they are likely to leave you feeling more raw than you bargained for.
