(March 20 – April 19):
Exchanges get heated with today’s Mercury/Mars conjunction. Don’t take it personally. People are simply caught up in the moment.
(April 20 – May 20):
That “easy” catch is slipperier than you think with Mercury conjoining Mars in Cancer. Keep at it and you won’t come up empty handed.
(May 21 – June 20):
Cool it because you won already. Keep pushing the point any further and you’ll incite a whole new round of verbal fisticuffs.
(June 21 – July 21):
You may not be able to explain why you’re hesitating when you should be acting, but follow your gut anyway. Come August 21st you’ll be glad you did.
(July 22 – Aug. 22):
It’s no fun being blamed for something you didn’t do but it happens to all of us at some time or another. Placate the outraged client or customer. Passing the buck only makes you look guilty.
(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):
Someone unintentionally hits a nerve with you today. Count to ten before responding because this person didn’t mean it.
(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):
A foul-up in communication sends everyone into a tizzy. It’s upsetting but ultimately is more distracting than destructive. Bring focus back to the matter at hand. Excuses and apologies can always be worked out later.
(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):
There’s more to a disagreement than meets the eye, but you don’t want to know what it is. Maintain your neutrality and you’ll avoid all the unpleasantness.
(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):
Don’t dignify a surly silence with a response. If something needs to be said, then this person must say it.
(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):
You expected a backlash – not an angry mob. Hold your head high. The cavalry is on the way.
(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):
Disentangling a mess is more complicated than it appears. Cut away some parts and you’ll rescue the whole.
(Feb. 18 – March 19):
Don’t apologize before you take action. You’ll give away the game. Do what needs to be done and then make amends.
