Cape Breton Home of our Hearts
Trickster Mercury short-circuits your mental wiring today, making you believe that someone is threatening you, even if that’s not the case. Fortunately, you can avoid overreacting by just being aware of your current tendency to make everything more important than it actually is. Ultimately, your decisions should work out for the best as long as you don’t jump to conclusions that justify unkind behavior.
You may try to be fair-minded in a partnership, but you cannot maintain your objectivity today. It’s not easy to express your annoyance with someone close to you, because you don’t want to waste energy on activities that detract from what you need to do. Unfortunately, holding your emotions quiet only adds to your irritation. Take a deep breath and then share your feelings — even if they are negative — but do it without blaming anyone else.
Warrior Mars stresses your planetary ruler Mercury today, luring you into an unpleasant exchange of words. You might think that your professional status is at stake, but it’s likely that you are so sensitive now that you make a big deal out of something that’s not all that important. Step back before reacting; try to understand what’s currently happening instead of attempting to change it.
Someone may accuse you of being negative today, yet you might believe that you are acting like a Pollyanna. Your denial doesn’t do much to settle others down as they ask you to explain your behavior. Don’t allow yourself to get sucked into peripheral dramas, but if it’s true that you have been hiding your frustrations it will feel better to get them out into the open.
You may not be willing to take the time now to explain your current actions or even your rationale for doing nothing. You feel that it’s your right to keep your feelings to yourself. Unfortunately, you can add more confusion to the situation if you don’t share your motives when you have the opportunity to do so. Even if you think that you have something better to do today, let your friends and associates know exactly what’s on your mind.
Your close friends may encourage you to talk about something you usually prefer to keep to yourself as forceful Mars antagonizes your key planet Mercury. Even if you know better, you could still lose your temper today and give someone a piece of your mind. Keep in mind that angry words don’t make anyone happier, so think twice before you escalate a minor difference of opinion into an open conflict.
Your rational thinking isn’t enough to keep you even-keeled these days as wordy Mercury squares combative Mars. Your friends and associates might not play fairly when they refuse to get involved in a discussion, but all you want is a bit of honest feedback. Paradoxically, it may work backwards now; if you push too hard, others will just retreat even further. Fortunately, giving them room to breathe allows them to finally come out of their shells.
You may experience another layer of frustration as you try to handle an already tricky situation. Thankfully, jolly Jupiter trines your key planet Pluto, giving you the endurance to follow through on whatever you start. But your eyes are larger than your tummy now, tempting you to bite off more than you can chew. Taking a few steps backward to reconsider what makes the most sense is a viable strategy to get what you want.
You can become involved in lengthy discussions at work as the Moon returns to your bombastic sign and enthusiastic Jupiter enters your 6th House of Employment. However, you may grow annoyed if others are less than forthcoming with their true intentions now that Jupiter trines underhanded Pluto. You’re impatient and don’t understand why your workmates don’t just come right out and say what’s on their minds. Even if it’s frustrating, practicing tolerance teaches you ways to overcome previous conditioning.
If your friends are acting belligerently toward you now, the situation may not be what it appears. Your emotional self-restraint can be very annoying to someone who burns hotter than you. The long-term solution to the current imbalance might not be the obvious one. Instead of telling others to back off, the answer may be for you to show your feelings. Ironically, a potential fight could be avoided by your willingness to share your emotions before a conflict grows out of hand.
You prefer to be left alone so you can get your work done today, but your co-workers continue to bother you with their great ideas. Before you overreact, try changing your mind about what’s happening in the present moment. If you attempt to shut others up now, they’ll just get angry and probably grow even more vocal. But if you take their suggestions in stride, they will feel acknowledged and you might even learn something important in the process.
You are experiencing everything with greater intensity today and this can be very draining on those around you. But don’t turn off your feelings, for any form of avoidance or denial only makes the atmosphere even more intense. However, keep in mind that you don’t need to express every thought or share every passion that stirs your soul.
