Don't run with scissors

It’s going to seem like a good idea to throw caution to the wind and say exactly what’s on your mind. It isn’t. Telling your truth is like revealing a treasure--you share it with those who'll honor it.

Like fire, the Aries Moon rushes in at 6:48 PM, PST, flickering when she feels like it, and changing moods second to second. She flares up, and just as quickly is gone. Being very independent, no one dares to tell her how to burn. Make no mistake about Aries--a flame does not welcome interference, it will burn you.
The Force of fire is with you.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Your day begins with the idea that you need to let so-and-so know exactly what you think. Wrong. You’ll hit someone over the head with your opinion, which is a whole lot better than a baseball bat, but still does you no good. Later, you get a fresh start around 6:48 PM, PST, when the Moon responds to your enthusiasm and hops into Aries. There’s going to be lots of fire, no ice, as the Moon joins the god of lightening immediately. These two are a combustion engine, helping you get a lot done. This can spark a sudden opportunity, but you’ll have to move fast.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You start your day with gusto and a hair-trigger temper. Warrior Mars is inspiring you to act rashly--contrary to your natural inclinations. You’re ready to tell everyone you meet exactly what you think of them--good, bad and ugly. It may feel like the truth to you, but it’s more likely a projection of your own bottled up anger that needs to come out. That would be the best use of today’s confrontations. The heat is turned up around 6:48 PM, PST, when the Moon moves into fiery Aries. She immediately bumps into Mr. Sudden Changes. You may be one of the few who can keep their heads together during this rash energy. Share your calming presence, your friends need you!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re spoiling for a fight, or those around you are. Confrontations are in the air today. It’s like the ol’ story of everyone walking around with a chip on their shoulder, just daring someone to knock it off. Watch for it. You get a big boost to your creative energy when the Moon moves into Aries at 6:48 PM, PST. Your intellectual, airy energy feeds the flames, and you’re ideas blaze up brightly! Right around midnight (12:26 AM, PST) surprises and sudden oppotunities are born. Dream them. Take notes.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
The warrior is on the loose and he’s so mad he doesn’t stop to think. It’s the “ready, fire, aim” syndrome! You may feel like fighting just for the sake of fighting--you might not even care very much about the issues. The point is, you have held something in for awhile and it wants an excuse, like anger, to come out. It can be very productive, and you could learn something about yourself if you keep a cool head. Practice counting to ten because the heat builds when the Moon goes into fiery Aries at 6:48 PM, PST. You’ll need ice.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
While you were (hopefully) sleeping, Mental Mercury got an invitation to a duel with warrior Mars at 3:26 AM, PST. They’re still at it, giving each other a piece of their mind. If you use this energy to provoke a truth, you could benefit from hearing what someone else has to say about you. Then you’re energy gets a helpful booster rocket when the Moon sprints into Aries at 6:48 PM, PST. You have some sudden changes and opportunities in store.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If you see that you’re a bit impulsive today, don’t work with sharp objects! The warrior Mars energy today has an “accident prone” reputation, simply because it’s a rash and pretty darn thoughtless way of acting. Saying exactly what’s on your mind is one manifestation. Be suspicious. Mars loves a fight. The truth is trying to become known, so that you can see something about yourself you’ve never seen. All of this will be good energy for you--enough to move mountains.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your partnerships are the scene for a truth-telling debate. People (and you) are justifying their anger in the guise of telling it like it is--the harsh “realities” of life. Use caution if you feel like unloading on a friend, telling them what you really think. Stop, look for any buried hostility, and listen to what others are really saying, not what you project onto them. A sneak peak at Spring arrives when the Moon races into fiery Aries at 6:48 PM, PST. Enormously creative time for you, with a side order of unexpected opportunities. Take them.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Your mind is working overtime this morning. While you were sleeping (3:26 AM, PST) the warrior planet showed up with his gloves on, looking for a match. He found it with messenger Mercury, who’s now inspiring your mental attitude with possibly harsh tell-it-like-it-is truths. If you add in just a little thoughtfulness, this could clear the air and help you see a hidden truth about yourself. Then at 6:48 PM, PST, the atmosphere heats up with the fiery Aries Moon. “Immediately” may become your key word--I want it immediately; I can deliver it immediately; and, you better get over here immediately! Use your wise restraint, and this will be a very creative time for you.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Forget your normal routine today, it’s not going to go as expected. First, you are really challenged to think before you speak when Warrior Mars starts setting up confrontations in the name of truth telling. Brutal honesty is one way of delivering a punch-in-disguise. Later in the day ( 6:48 PM, PST) the Aries Moon joins hands with you around a blazing but unpredictable campfire. Your creativity gets supercharged. Notice the impulsiveness this Moon brings so you can modulate this big energy. You’ll be able to accomplish a great deal.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Don’t provoke a fight by using your automobile as a ramming device! The hostility you sense in the air is Warrior Mars trying to get at a buried truth. He’ll do it by provoking a fight. Something you need to see about yourself is hidden in the “issue” you’re angry about. The mood shifts around 6:48 PM, PST, to the enthusiasm of the fiery Aries Moon. Just to make sure we notice her arrival, the Aries Moon makes an immediate stand next to the god of lightening, Uranus. The two of them together are sudden combustion. It’s as if you mood changes so rapidly you don’t even know what’s happening. Aries brings freshness, and a hint of the approaching Spring.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
But careful. Warrior Mars is ready to fight, about pretty much anything! This summons some hidden “issues” that travel out of the closet on the force of your anger. You get to see it, and tell the truth about it--to yourself. You have an easier time of it when the Aries Moon rushes in at 6:48 PM, PST. She prides herself on being creatively changeable, which is the way your moods will go. All this energy has a Divine plan. It’s stirring things up in the same way a field must be plowed before planting. Turning over the dirt.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
No sharp objects. Anger is on the loose, and you may not see it coming. Warrior Mars is provoking a fight so that in the midst of your upset, you see a new truth about yourself. Try, if you can, to refrain from “straightening out“ someone close to you by telling them the harsh truth. It’s likely just your projection of your own truth, out where you can see it. It’s a great day for mental work, as long as you can work alone. The Aries Moon hurries in at 6:48 PM, PST, bringing some jitters and more than a few impulsive ideas. They’re worth noting, but not acting on until reason returns. Right after midnight (12:26 AM, PST) the god of lightening adds some surprises to the mix. A fresh start and sneak preview of Spring.
