A Mercury-Mars square can make it difficult to relax in the first half of the day, dear Libra.

With this aspect, you and others can be more defensive than usual, which can throw off conversations.

On the other hand, this influence can give you a push to take care of matters that you’ve let go. You might also thoroughly enjoy an intellectual challenge now.

It’s when you’re hasty that it’s most likely to trip you up, so try not to communicate or move about too quickly.

This can also be a day of impulsive spending, and mixing romance and money can be problematic now. Taming impulsiveness and impatience may be challenging but can help you tremendously.

Go to the extra trouble today to fully document a transaction or commit important information to notes for later reference.

It might be tough to predict how or why in the future this record-keeping will prove to be prudent.

But if that moment does arrive, you’ll be glad for having taken the actions you did. Exercise control and good judgement, and you will feel more secure about whatever transpires.

Adopt an exam-style philosophy; when solving a problem, show your work. Details matter in both love and money.

There is something about the Moon’s departure from a playful part of your chart and return to your work sector today that can be treated as a practice run.

For in just under four weeks’ time Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos will take the same step, but with far more dramatic implications.

Today, playful lunar vibes running their course won’t take away a playful influence, making it unlikely that life will suddenly become all work and no play.

The same can’t be said for when Mars takes that same step, in 27 days’ time.

Today’s Quote: “You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
