For the next few days the planet Mercury will form a challenging link to Mars. The words you hear may sound harsh or even unpleasant while the words you say may sound more hostile and provocative than you intend. Of course sometimes situations call for assertiveness and firm boundaries but you would do well to remember that there will be consequences.
Mercury is now moving through your twelfth house, the sector of the chart that rules the need for privacy and solitude. Every holiday season is full of hustle and bustle but this past one has put the others to shame. In fact, it is very likely that you can barely hold a simple train of thought let alone keep up your side of a conversation. It is important for you to take an interest in others but you need to establish your social limits too.
