Tensions will run high today when the Moon forms a square with Mars. The full moon in Libra amidst Aries season makes your mind wander between putting yourself first and compromising with your partner. It’s best to find balance between the two, but the Moon squaring with Mars will make this task extra harder today. However, the universe blesses us with a bit of clarity when Mercury forms a sextile with Saturn.
To learn how your sign can navigate today’s difficult planetary alignments, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you might stumble upon some conflict in your love life today when the Moon forms a square with Mars. It is not a good time to talk about family matters, as it might only cause some tension between you and your partner. You might feel easily emotionally provoked when talking about issues about your family. Instead of engaging in an argument, try to give each other some space to breathe first. It is better to talk later in the day when Mercury forms a sextile with Saturn, when you are given a bit of clarity and are more level headed to talk things out rationally. Remember not to say hurtful words in the heat of the moment, Aries, as you might only regret them later when the anger subsides.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Today is not a day for romance, Taurus, as you might only feel frustration with a love interest when the Moon in your 6th house provokes hot-headed Mars in your 3rd house of communication. You’re starting to feel as if this love affair is causing you more stress than happiness, and it’s all coming to a head today. Try to hold yourself back from shooting daggers through your partner’s heart by saying hurtful words. Even if you’re frustrated with them, it is better to wait until you’ve calmed down before talking with them. When Mercury in your 1st house forms a sextile with Saturn in your 11th house, your head is a little more clear and you’re able to communicate your needs in a friendly, rather than aggressive, manner. Whether or not you want to work these issues out with them or leave once and for all is up to you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, the day starts off rough for you when the Moon in your 5th house of romance provokes Mars in your 2nd house of money and income. You might feel like you really want to spoil your significant other or a certain love interest, but you currently don’t have the resources. Don’t let your pride get the best of you when they tell you it’s okay if you can’t do this yet. Later on in the day, when Mercury goes sextile with Saturn, you will come to a realization that money and material possessions aren’t really necessary when it comes to love. Sure, it is nice to be able to treat your partner every once in a while, but it’s not your money that makes them love you—it’s you, Gemini. It will always be you.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Family and personal matters will clash for you today, Cancer, when the Moon in your 4th house angers impatient Mars in your 1st house of the self. You might become overly protective of your ego when a partner or family member points out personal issues that you should work on. If the criticism is valid, try not to take it as a personal attack, Cancer. I know it’s hard, but the best thing to do is to listen to them, and trust them when they say it’s for your own good. This becomes all too clear when Mercury meets Saturn in a sextile formation later on in the day, and even if you reacted poorly when they pointed out your issues, you will later on realize that their points are actually valid, which might make you regret any harsh words you might’ve said. So don’t let anger and ego get the best of you today, dear Cancer. Your loved ones only want what’s best for you.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re prone to overthinking things, and today is no exception. When the Moon in your 3rd house of the mind squares Mars in your 12th house of endings, you might start feeling like a relationship is not giving you what you need. You might even start to believe that love, true love, does not exist. This nihilistic point of view might lead you to impulsively end a current relationship, whether you’re committed or just casually dating. Hold these thoughts on pause, lion. Later on in the day, the universe will bless you with a bit of clarity when Mercury forms a sextile with Mars. You will realize that perhaps you’re being irrational and are overreacting a bit. Wait until you’re level headed before you make final decisions, dear Leo, because if you don’t, you might end up deeply regretting your actions.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
There might be some conflict between your social and financial life today, Virgo, when the Moon in your 2nd house of money gets into a fight with Mars in your 11th house of friendships. You might have been unable to say no to your friends’ invitations to eat out even if you can’t afford it anymore. A romantic partner might point this out, and you might get offended when they do. However, it’s best for you to be realistic, Virgo. You know they have a point, and this will be all too clear when Mercury meets Saturn in a sextile formation. You’ll realize the days of indulgence should finally come to a halt, and it’s time to save your money—to say no to your friends even if it often feels embarrassing. Trust me, saving money is a good idea, especially with the upcoming Mercury retrograde later this month.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, the full moon comes home to you today in your very own 1st house of the self. It might be difficult for you to balance your personal interests with that of your romantic partner today. You’ll get especially emotional and perhaps even angry when issues about your work and career start to affect the relationship. Don’t get offended when your partner brings them up. It would be the perfect time to talk it out later on in the day when Mercury forms a sextile with Saturn. You’d be less emotional and more rational, which means you’d be more capable of making sound decisions and talking it out without arguing.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You might start getting in touch with your subconscious desires today, Scorpio, when the Moon dips into your 12th house of the subconscious. However, when it squares Mars in your 9th house of philosophy, you might feel that these subconscious desires directly contrast your current beliefs and convictions, which might cause you to feel shame about yourself. You might not be ready to share this with a romantic partner or any of your loved ones because of this. However, when Mercury goes sextile with Saturn later today, you’ll find a way for these two to co-exist. Communicating them to a partner or a trusted friend can help eliminate the shame and bring you some validation.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you might get into some fight with a friend today when the Moon in your 11th house squares Mars in your 8th house. You might’ve started experimenting sexually or have recently gotten into hookup culture, and a friend might point out that this is unhealthy for you. You’ll feel offended when they point this out, but it might be better to hear them out than get into an argument. It’s easier to communicate peacefully when Mercury forms a sextile with Saturn later today, and hearing them out might make you realize that they do actually have a point. After all, they’re probably not just saying this to offend you or to prove a point, Sagittarius, because they’re your friend and they do care about you.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
It’s not a good idea to mix your work and love life today, Capricorn, when the Moon in your 10th house squares Mars in your 7th house. If you feel like you’re starting to develop feelings for a coworker, this might cause some tension in your workplace when you act on these feelings. Of course, this is especially bad if you’re in a committed relationship. Don’t let Mars push you to act impulsively on these feelings, Capricorn, or you might end up regretting it in the end. Wait until Mercury forms a sextile with Saturn later today, and you will be able to think rationally. You’ll realize why it’s not a good idea, and you’ll see all of the people that are bound to get hurt if you let your feelings take over—and this includes yourself, most of all.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Every one of us has unhealthy patterns and behavior that can be hard to unlearn, Aquarius, and this includes you, even if you deny it. When the Moon in your 9th house of philosophy clashes against Mars in your 6th house, you’re forced to confront these unhealthy patterns. It can be hard to accept you’re wrong at first, but you must acknowledge that acknowledging your mistakes is the first step toward changing for the better. This realization will become clearer later today when Mercury goes sextile with Saturn. You’ll be encouraged to work on yourself, on having better habits and patterns that will improve yourself and make your mental health better in the long run.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, there might be some tension between your sex and love life today when the Moon in your 8th house squares Mars in your 5th house. Your sex drive is heightened right now, but it might not match your partner’s. Don’t get offended when your partner rejects your advances. It doesn’t mean you’re undesirable, they just don’t have the energy for it right now. Later on, when Mercury goes into a sextile formation with Saturn, you’ll realize that sex doesn’t equal love. In fact, romantic love can exist without it, and we’re too conditioned by society to think it is necessary in a relationship. You’ll realize that even without sex, you’ll still love your partner wholeheartedly.
