If stress seems to be on the upswing over the last few days, join the club. It’s okay to pin a fair amount of the blame for recent tensions on the provocative behavior expressed by Mars and Uranus acting up in tandem. Plus, after their dalliances together and with the lunar orb over the last three days, now Mars and Uranus conduct a potentially out-of-control, explosive conjunction at the last degree of Aries (10:22 p.m.). This also occurs during a possibly stormy and unsettling 11 hour void moon conundrum that begins during a crisis-producing first quarter solar-lunar phase at 2:27 p.m. (activating 24 degrees of Aquarius and Taurus) and doesn’t conclude until the moon enters airy Gemini at 1:33 a.m. tomorrow.
Adding to today’s misery index in the early hours are Mercury contra-parallel Mars (3:39 a.m.) and asteroids Ceres and Vesta engaging in a 90-degree skirmish (8:10 a.m.). Look to flowing trines by the moon in Taurus to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn (12:06 a.m. and 10:56 a.m., respectively) to help you maintain some common sense and pragmatism while volatility appears to rule the roost.
