Control issues surface this morning when the Capricorn Moon conjoins Pluto and squares Uranus in Aries, quickly followed by a soothing trine to Jupiter in Virgo. The grouchies should pass quickly. However there is another influence at work today that may not blow over so fast . . . Mars in Scorpio is squaring Mercury in Aquarius at 29°. Both of these planets will be changing signs tomorrow. The blow up might not come right away because Scorpio is so controlled but uncalled for remarks won’t be forgiven or forgotten. Be careful out there today. 🌠☽♑🌠
Usually a Mercury-Mars square results in hot tempered eruptions but this time we’re dealing with Mercury in cool, detached Aquarius and Mars in subtle, contained Scorpio. Both are fixed signs and as such not given to backing down. Aquarius is not noted for being all that sensitive to emotional nuance and watery Scorpio is the opposite. This suggests people are going to say things without meaning to offend and yet that’s exactly what happens. Scorpio may not react in the heat of the moment but will wait to exact revenge later. Be aware of your words and your audience today or it could come back at you later when you least expect it.
