Mercury forms a square to Mars today, dear Cancer, and this may create an atmosphere of nervous tension. Under this influence, you might lose patience and feel pressured to make a decision.
This can very well lead to positive things, such as finally taking action on a matter you left hanging, but it can also lead to hasty decisions or unnecessary arguments. Impatience, provocative statements, and defensiveness are all more likely now, and jumping into action before getting all the facts is not advised.
Helping you slow down is a Mercury-Pluto aspect, also in play today. It’s perhaps just as ambitious an influence, but a far more patient one! You may be setting rules and limits and gaining new insights into your relationships or projects now.
You’re focused on what’s substantial, and you have far less concern about the extras, making it an excellent time for meaningful work. Conversations with others can be very enlightening, particularly those that address philosophical interests and the future.
You have a little more courage than usual to seek out and face the truth. It’s an excellent time for understanding a new or different perspective.
Your current self-confidence motivates you to take chances and say things you might normally keep to yourself. Although you may have an excessive amount of good information at your disposal, you could struggle as you try to tie it all together into a coherent theory.
Stick with your most creative ideas now, for they are the ones that carry the greatest potential. Novelist Cathy Hopkins wrote, “Don’t wait for your ship to come in, swim out to it.”
Consider how things are set to become a lot more professionally focused this week, today’s alignment between Venus and Jupiter is the perfect distraction and just the right time.
While you may have got away with ignoring the call from playful and adventurous forces until now, when Venus and Jupiter join forces that will prove impossible today.
This is less than playing hooky if you can and more about choosing to see life as an adventure and the importance of following your heart.
