Mars is now in Leo, where on and off it will flirt with Mercury (also in Leo) until mid-month.
The potential for accomplishing your goals now is real, but only if you do it right. The problem is that with Mercury/Mars in Leo together, it will be very difficult to find the right balance between rightful self-assertion and being annoyingly pushy. Even worse, with this energy, most folks will be on edge. So even your best intended overtures may be interpreted as fighting words.
How to avoid a potential clash?
Ready for a challenge?
- As party to any confrontation, you need to be very clear about your intended goals. In turn, this requires you to have a firm grasp on your personal values, or the core principles that give meaning to your life (i.e. honest or integrity or dignity or commitment).
- Next, you need to be ready to understand the values of the other person(s) involved and respect them as valid even if they should conflict with your own.
- Regularly, we come into contact with people whose values are different from our own and we deal with it. That’s because prior experience tells us that more often than not, we will find some middle ground.
- With Mars/Mercury in Leo, you may need to put in a bit more effort than usual to accomplish this.
