Our strongest efforts may turn out to be little more than smoke and mirrors today. The Moon in Sagittarius begins the day on a buoyant and boisterous note as she makes a potent trine to Jupiter and a surprising quincunx to Uranus. Volcanic Mars, however, will square off watery Neptune at 7:39 pm EST, which could put a damper on even the most enthusiastic plans. The Moon will cap things off with an opposition to Mars, so we could be left scrambling to find solutions.
March 21-April 19
To say what you mean and mean what you say won’t be the simplest thing in the world currently. Your ruler Mars is nearing the end of an extended tour of your communications sector, and right now the red planet is squaring off foggy Neptune in your subconscious 12th house, scrambling signals across the board. If you feel like you can’t get your ideas across, then don’t force yourself into a corner. That would be a quick way to say the wrong thing!
April 20-May 20
Not all that glitters is gold, Taurus — and not every charity deserves your donation, even if it seems like a good cause. There’s a conflicting square between Mars in your financially focused 2nd house and Neptune in your philanthropic 11th house, so before you start tossing your money around, make sure you’re doing so for the right reasons and researching all the options. Do your due diligence before accepting any offer, no matter how positive it sounds. Watch out for any hidden agendas!
May 21-June 20
You can push and push and push as much as you like, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get anywhere. That may be the case at this moment as warrior Mars in your sign squares Neptune in your ambitious 10th house. No matter how hard you pound on a wall, it simply won’t turn into a door — at least not today, anyway. Wait for clearer skies to pursue your goals, as they’ll likely elude you under these clouds. Patience is key.
June 21-July 22
Don’t be shocked if nothing turns out like you expected! Mars in your subconscious 12th house is making a rough square to Neptune in your boundless 9th house, so it’s going to be more difficult than usual to clarify where you stand. Take things gently and avoid getting carried away with any flights of fancy, because manifesting these desires has a high chance of being frustratingly difficult. Step back and take a deep breath — you’re allowed to save your ambitions for another day.
July 23-August 22
Life is presently blowing hot and cold for you. Due to the conflicting square between Mars in your social 11th house and Neptune in your private 8th house, you may find you feel like you’re being forced to interact with other people when you’d rather just do things on your own. Regardless of your preferences, you probably won’t be able to avoid some socializing, so do your best to maintain a semblance of politeness. You can do that without having to reveal anything personal.
August 23-September 22
You may need to be your own cheerleader today. Mars in your 10th House of career is pushing you toward some important finish lines, but a tense square to Neptune in your partnership sector could leave you feeling like you have to do everything by yourself. Someone you normally count on may let you down, or perhaps you’ll realize that there’s more on your plate than you can handle, but help will be scarce. Don’t doubt your own capability — you can do this!
September 23-October 22
You’re probably all too aware of the possibilities available to you, but that doesn’t mean you can reach them that easily. Mars in your expansive 9th house is driving you to look beyond your usual limitations and discover just how far you can go in pursuit of new experiences, but its disagreement with Neptune in your routine sector could leave you feeling like you forgot something on the stove. Tend to any matters currently in the heat before you gallop off into the sunset.
October 23-November 21
You may feel like you’re the only one taking things seriously at the moment. You’ve been hosting action planet Mars in your extreme 8th house for quite a while, and now it’s bumping into Neptune in your easy-going 5th house. Together these two planets could leave you feeling like you’re in a game of tug-o-war, with you on one side and everyone else on the other. Make an effort to avoid getting into any debates with people, because the response likely won’t please you.
November 22-December 21
People may push your buttons without warning, and establishing boundaries may not be simple. Mars in your relationship sector is pressuring your closest partnerships, and unfortunately, one of them could boil over with stress as Mars squares off Neptune in your emotional 4th house. Whether they mean to or not, someone could say or do something that totally sets you off. If they seem apologetic or as though they didn’t mean to offend, try to react fairly. A negative reaction could make things much worse.
December 22-January 19
You’ve likely got a long to-do list at the moment, but that doesn’t mean everything will actually get done. With the uncomfortable square between Mars in your responsible 6th house and Neptune in your busy 3rd house, a few things could quickly slip through the cracks. Don’t expect too much from yourself, because it’s easy to miss something under this energy. As long as you check off the most essential tasks, then you’ve done more than enough, as far as the planets are concerned.
January 20-February 18
You can have fun at present, but you might need to plan carefully beforehand. Mars in your lucky 5th house is inspiring you to enjoy life and do little else, but its tough angle to Neptune in your financially focused 2nd house could incite you to blow past your budget! If you want to go wild, try to find cheap ways of doing so — because a small treat could turn into a big indulgence, and you’ll be the one left footing the bill.
February 19-March 20
Getting in touch with your emotions could feel like something of a circus act today. Mars in your deep-feeling 4th house picks a fight with Neptune in your sign, which creates a struggle where you want to act on your feelings immediately, while also not knowing what your feelings actually are. Don’t react to something just for the sake of reacting, because you may find that what you say isn’t at all what you mean. Take your time in order to remain authentic to yourself.
