Difficult aspects can make you a bit cool and clinical about other people's inadequacies. Needless to say they may not take it very kindly. Soften your approach. Stop and think about the consequences of your behavior for others, because Mars retrograde in your opposite sign tends to push you where you may not consciously want to go. You are likely to find that you're thinking about things rather more deeply and may come across a little more forcefully than you'd intended.
Don't get furious if someone disagrees with you, but stand back and be creative about the differences. Enjoy the challenge. If you are feeling rather gloomy give yourself a shake. Sometimes you just have to get underneath to find out what people's motivations really are, or what has led you to the situation you are now facing. You will find that knowledge can lead to freedom.
Handle yourself with care, because you're likely to be busy with your mind on red alert. Buzzing around at top speed, your tongue will also be moving rather quickly. You won't take kindly to anyone telling you what to do, giving you orders or crowding you. To influence your companions you need to muster up all your persuasive force and vigor.
Warrior Mars stimulates a challenge, a bit of controversy, but do not push it too far. You have the confidence to get things done, but you could be critical, seeing mistakes and pointing out other people's flaws. This they may not take to very kindly. Are you frustrated because family members shut off what you say? It's time to rethink your approach.
Keep moving, but be wary of foot-in-mouth syndrome. If you leap into saying one or two things too sharply, it won't work. But if you're clear in what you're saying, then others will appreciate it. Avoid homing in on one matter to the point of obsession - so focused in on the detail that you can't see the broader picture.
Don't get yourself over-hyped. With your energy and assertiveness, its important not to look as if you're trying to pick fights. If everyone can be honest, straightforward and not allow a note of self-righteousness to creep in, then the influences today can be immensely helpful. Keeping detached and unemotional will be the key.
With the gorgeous Moon glowing in chatty Gemini, you'll be determined now that you've found the courage and confidence to say the things you want to say. Sort one situation out in a sensible way now and take constructive steps to find out what you need to know. You will find long-term answers if you persist.
If you've have to speak to a wider audience than usual, the Moon-Mercury aspect is great. It will pick you up and push you out, stimulating the confidence to say the things you need to say. Be clear about who you are, but also be clear that it's OK for other people to be who they are. Aim for a creative and constructive discussion. You may be absolutely right in what you are thinking or saying, but keep an open mind.
Archers are vigorous, full of energy, bounce, and strong opinions. Get the right balance. You've got confidence in what you're doing and what you believe in, but don't push it too far and end up in disagreements. Everything is under the microscope today with the Moon in your opposite sign. Don't get suspicious and don't make judgments before you have all the information at your fingertips. Control the temptation to be over-forceful.
Be positive, upfront and speak your mind. This is not the time to hide in a corner or sweep your feelings out of sight. Just don't be too critical especially with thinner-skinned mates. Remember their sensitive spots before you blurt out your opinions. Communication is a two-way process, so you may also be listening more to other people. The more you hear what they have to say, the better it will be in the long run.
You'll be busy, on your toes, no chance of boredom, with a great deal of variety in your everyday schedule. An Aquarian Mercury always zips around at top speed, but remember to be more reflective, and tactful. Your enthusiasm will help other people and sweep them along with you. You need to step back and be more tolerant, keeping an open mind on almost everything.
If you are normally under-confident, the Moon dancing with Mercury will shake you up and enable you to talk in a livelier way. It will give that sense of confidence to do things you haven't been able to do before. Just don't get too sharp or confrontational. Open up to other people a little bit more. If you feel you might be humiliated if you disclose all your best ideas consider that you will actually gain from creative discussions.
