Do you remember that Mars was a dominant cosmic force at the start of this month? The red planet is trying to roil up the human state of affairs once again by forging a parallel with underworld, agent-provocateur Pluto (3:29AM) and also making a potentially caustic, 45-degree tie with Messenger of the Gods planet Mercury (9:00PM). Projecting anger on to well-meaning dear ones and friends is a no-no. Keep your temper under control. Use words to support and nurture — not to harm.
Aces in the hole today include an artistic-literary boosting parallel between Mercury and Venus (Noon) followed by a productivity-enhancing conjunction between the Sun and Ceres at 18 degrees of Sagittarius (3:40PM). Watch out for apparent road blocks as the Moon in Cancer enters a void condition for three hours — starting at 4:16PM and lasting until 7:15PM. During the void-of-course Moon cycle, an extra dose of uncertainty appears in the form of a frictional square between Pallas in Scorpio and Jupiter in Leo (6:53PM). Fight any tendency to be a know-it-all who has a cornucopia of answers to every question. It is wise to rest your thought process to avoid mental fatigue.
Once the Moon enters warmhearted Leo (7:15PM), let your inner child come out to play for a while. Fun and games should be at the top of your evening agenda.
