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 eighth house, the sector of the chart that rules the parts of our lives that we share with others. It can be difficult for other people to take what you say seriously so if you have something important to say, it should be a high priority to prepare everyone to listen carefully. Do be careful of taking your friends for granted. Everyone has their limits and you don’t need to accrue people who will refuse to support you in the future.
