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 tenth house, the sector of the chart that rules your career and reputation. People who know you accept you as you are. However, this week you run the serious risk of giving out the wrong impression to those you should be trying to impress which could in turn hinder potential career relationships. It will help you to take a deep breath before saying anything so you give yourself time to think about how you want to come across.
