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 third house, the sector of the chart that rules communication and the people who live close to you. Generally speaking, you would rather not stand out in the crowd. However, today you have plenty to say about how you’d like to get things done—and most importantly, other people will be paying attention. Be sure you are more clear than usual today or you may find yourself with more messes to clear up.
