TODAY: While current influences are big proponents of the need to do it differently – and recommend employing the appropriate degree of restraint when doing it differently – they’re not exactly providing the incentive to employ the appropriate degree of restraint. Try to organize it anyway. Also, FYI: The company that you’re keeping and the contacts that you’re making should be quite useful in the coming days, weeks or months.
YOUR BIRTHDAY: Sure, you might really really really want to orchestrate an outcome, but still… The chances are better than good that, should you opt to force a family, partnership, professional or emotional issue because you’re totally out of patience with x and simply cannot wait one moment longer for y, all of the King’s horses and men won’t be of much use in your particular Humpty-Dumpty reassembly.
AriesWednesday, April 23, 2014
CEO Mars, the planet of initiation, is messing with Pluto, the planet of manipulation. Potential topics: You and yours, or household, residential, family, social, professional or partnership arrangements. Btw: The cooler you can be in your response(s), the less likely this is to turn into a world-class energy drain.
TaurusWednesday, April 23, 2014
Even if you’re being fully and legitimately provoked, hold your fire. With cranky Mars and potent Pluto involved in a heated dispute, asking anyone to relinquish their position (even politely) is likely to engender the same sort of acquiescence and cooperation normally associated with a mobster being asked to turn himself in for tax evasion.
GeminiWednesday, April 23, 2014
You may want to just grab a magazine, scamper over to the sidelines, and sit this one out. Mars is assaulting Pluto, and given your aversion to unpleasantness and high drama, it’s totally acceptable to skip out on any power struggles in which you’re being invited to partake.
CancerWednesday, April 23, 2014
This is not the moment to force a family, real estate or personal issue, even if you have right, might and truth on your side. The resulting blow-out would likely put a pair of cranky rodeo bulls to shame, and – adding insult to injury – you may not even end up with the outcome that you’re looking for
LeoWednesday, April 23, 2014
While you are a big believer in keeping the faith, keeping the peace and keeping out of it, the Mars-Pluto fight may test your neutrality (or non-aggression pact) over work, health or emotional matters. Moreover, if you feel that someone is trying to prevent you from growing or broadening your horizons, good luck to them.
VirgoWednesday, April 23, 2014
Mars and potent Pluto are having a honking disagreement, most likely over money, love, who can legitimately claim the credit or the best (or most intelligent) allocation of your resources. While you may be inclined to rush in and defend your position, trust your horoscope that it would be much better (and way less messy) if you waited until tomorrow.
LibraWednesday, April 23, 2014
Mars, the planet of “put up your dukes” is threatening Pluto, the planet of scorched-earth policies. Therefore, the chances of authoring an accommodation, negotiation or compromise which is acceptable to all parties are statistically negligible, but will improve significantly in 24-48 hours if you can just hold your horses until then.
ScorpioWednesday, April 23, 2014
Instincts are there for a reason, chiefly to alert you to potential problems. And, with testy Mars challenging controlling overlord Pluto, this is not the moment to brush yours aside. If you’ve ever disregarded your “check engine” light only to find yourself killing a whole morning waiting for a tow, you’ll understand and appreciate the heads up.
SagittariusWednesday, April 23, 2014
Masterful Pluto, the planet of transition (and death-defiance) is having a set-to with equally masterful Mars, the planet of conflict. Thus you probably want to think long and hard before flinging an ultimatum, pushing someone into a corner, calling somebody out, or taking a kitchen shears to an arrangement just because you can.
CapricornWednesday, April 23, 2014
Should you spy a clash over career, personal or relationship issues developing on the horizon, batten your hatches and make a berth around it. Sure, you have exceedingly definite opinions about how it should come down or how others should perform, but right now they do too – and they’ll happily fight you over it.
AquariusWednesday, April 23, 2014
If your intuition is tugging your sleeve or tapping your shoulder, don’t just carry on as though nothing untoward is occurring. With Mars cross with Pluto, this is not the ideal moment to - metaphorically speaking -blow through a stop sign or tune out any flashing lights in your rearview mirror.
PiscesWednesday, April 23, 2014
With combative Mars and influence-peddling Pluto at each other's throats, you could be convinced that you should issue ultimatums and try to use your leverage, particularly over shared emotional or economic arrangements. It isn’t a good idea today, and it won’t be tomorrow either, but if you’re not in the mood for advice, feel free to test the waters yourself.
