Not to worry though, because this conflict is bound to get resolved when the Moon trines with Mercury later on. It will be a good time to talk about these issues with your partner and let them know why you behaved the way you did, and they will understand, as long as you allow yourself to be open.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, personal gets mixed up with the professional today as the Moon gets into a fight with stubborn Mars. You might find it hard to establish a balance between your professional life and personal life. Perhaps something at home has been bothering you that it starts affecting you at work, or maybe it’s the other way around—maybe something really bad has been going on at work lately that you can’t help but bring the weight with you when you come home, affecting your personal life. Whatever the case may be, it’s true that communication is the key when the Moon trines with Mercury later on in the day. Communicating these issues with your partner at home or with your boss and your colleagues at work can easily solve the issues that have been affecting you, finally putting an end to your suffering.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, your emotions start to get the best of you when your long-held beliefs and convictions are challenged by the Moon going in opposition with Mars today. You’ve always taken pride in being right, and now that you’re starting to realize you were wrong, it hurts your ego really badly that it’s starting to manifest in your personal relationships. Maybe you’ve been more irritable with your partner lately, and they’re starting to lose their patience at your irritability. When the Moon trines Mercury later today, you’re given an opportunity to right these wrongs by talking to your partner and having them understand where you’re coming from. It’s never a bad idea to swallow your pride and own up to your mistakes even if it hurts, Taurus. If you truly care about your loved ones, you will swallow your pride even if it chokes you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you’ve always taken great care of other people around you—your friends, family, and even your S.O., if you’re in a committed relationship. You never forget to give them gifts on their birthday and on other special occasions, you take them out on dates, you’re there for them when they need someone, and more. However, a little bit of resentment starts to bloom in the depths of your heart when you realize you haven’t been receiving the same kind of love. You take care of others, but who takes care of you? Don’t let this resentment eat you up inside, Gemini, instead, it would be a good idea to communicate your needs and desires to your loved ones when the Moon meets Mercury in a trine later today. After all, the best way to get what you need is to let people know what they are. How can you expect to get the treatment you desire if you don’t let your loved ones know?
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you love taking care of others. It’s in your nature to nurture other people, to love your friends, family, and your partner, if you’re in a committed relationship, like they’ve never been loved before. But have you been giving yourself the same kind of love? It might start hurting when you realize you haven’t been capable of loving yourself the way you love others, Cancer. You might even start beating yourself up for it. However, when the Moon gets into a delicate dance with Mercury later today, you realize that it’s through loving others that you can learn to love yourself. Think about your best friend: how much do you love them? Then, apply that same love and caring to yourself. That’s the best way you can learn to love yourself, Cancer, so don’t beat yourself up because it’s never too late to start doing that.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re laser-focused on improving your health and wellbeing today, and you get the most emotional satisfaction when you’re able to take good care of yourself. You know you’re not getting any younger, so it’s better for you to take care of yourself as early as you can. However, when the Moon meets headstrong Mars in opposition, you wonder if you should be paying attention to your loved ones the same way. Your parents are also not getting any younger by the day, and you wonder if you should be taking care of them as well, spending time with them while you still can. When the Moon trines with Mercury, you realize that two things can be true at once. You can take care of yourself while taking care of others as well—the key is finding the balance, and life will become so much easier when you find that balance, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re in the quest for finding love, Virgo, as you desire to spark some romance back into your life. If you’re in a committed relationship, this manifests with you taking extra care of your partner and bringing back some romance into the relationship by cooking for them, taking them out on dates, watching their favorite movies with them, and more. But when the Moon goes in opposition with Mars today, you start to feel annoyed with yourself for not being able to pay the same amount of love and care to your friends and family. Romance is not the only type of love there is, and you hate yourself for hyper-fixating on it. However, when the Moon trines Mercury later today, you realize it’s not yet too late. There’s no use hating yourself when you still have plenty of time to show your friends and family that you love them, Virgo, don’t feel like you’re running out of time. As long as you don’t take it for granted, you’re all good.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you feel perfectly content with your personal life right now, and you feel as if there’s nothing more you could ask for. Your family is great, your friends are wonderful, you feel loved by your S.O. like you’ve never been loved before, which all equates to an incredible support system. But when the Moon meets Mars in opposition, you wonder: what is this support system for? Should you be working for something ambitious? On furthering your career until you reach the skies? You might even start feeling like you’re wasting what you have right now by having no ambition. However, the universe brings you some clarity when the Moon trines with Mercury. You don’t have to have incredibly ambitious dreams, Libra. The end-goal is not always shooting for the moon. Sometimes, people are perfectly content when they land in the stars, and it could be the same for you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You’ve been actively working on yourself, Scorpio. You’ve recently gotten back into some old hobbies and recharging your creativity. When the Moon opposes hot-blooded Mars, however, you wonder if your talents are better shared with the world, and you hate that you’re not confident enough in your skills to share it yet. Maybe you even hate how you’re not able to improve at the pace you want to. When the Moon trines Mercury later in the day, you’re reminded that there’s no rush, Scorpio. Take all the time you need to improve. Seeking your partner’s advice or that of loved ones can help you realize that the world can wait until you’re ready to finally grace them with your talents when your talents are strong enough.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you’ve been working hard and saving your hard-earned money for the rainy days. As someone who knows how it feels to have scarce resources, you’re doing everything in your power not to let yourself go through it again. This is why when you see your loved ones struggling, you wonder if you should share your resources with them as well and if you’re selfish to want to keep your money to yourself. You might even start to resent yourself for doing this. However, you’re brought some clarity with the Moon trines Mercury. Listening to your loved ones can help you decipher in what way you can help, which doesn’t always come in the form of money.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re putting yourself first today, Capricorn, with the Moon in your 1st house of the self. It’s always been difficult for you to get in touch with your emotions, but today you’re trying your best to do just that. When the Moon meets Mars in opposition, you wonder if self-care is selfish—if you should take time to take care of the people around you instead, to nurture your relationships instead of just focusing on yourself and yourself alone. However, when the Moon trines Mercury later today, you realize that you can do this simultaneously. You can take care of yourself and your friends at the same time, you can even let them take care of you if you let them in, if you’re honest and vulnerable with them.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, acts of service is your love language today. You want to show your friends, family, and your partner, if you’re in a romantic relationship, some love by cooking for them, cleaning for them, and generally just easing the burden off their shoulders by helping them accomplish their everyday tasks. It gives you so much emotional satisfaction being able to help your loved ones like this. When the Moon opposes Mars, however, you start to realize that you should also be doing the same for yourself. Don’t be so quick to beat yourself up, Aquarius. When the Moon trines Mercury later today, you’re reminded that it’s never too late to take care of yourself the way you take care of others. It’s okay to take a break from helping your loved ones if you need to, Aquarius, as long as you let them know.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re extremely grateful for your wonderful friends, Pisces, and you shower them with tender love and care today simply by spending time with them. You catch up on each other’s lives over brunch, maybe even watch that new series they’re currently into so you can relate with them. Even if you’re happy in your friendships, however, you still long for a deeper, more meaningful type of connection when the Moon opposes headstrong Mars. Seeing your friends in happy, healthy relationships might even make you feel resentful because you believe you deserve the same, but just can’t get it for some reason. When the Moon trines Mercury later today, it might be a good idea to let someone know about these worries to ease the burden off your shoulders. Your time will come, Pisces. Good things come to those who wait.
