Mars in Sagittarius aligns with the south node of destiny today. This energy is erratic and intense. It could be hard for you to assert your energy and will throughout the day because you feel exhausted and drained. Since energy will be depleted, you could be unable to fully fight for what you want to attain.
Watch out for temper tantrums that bring feelings to light. Mars in Sagittarius is known for provoking us to say things we don’t mean, and we could be unwilling to hold back from saying whatever is on our mind regardless of the outcome. Don’t give in to the desire to stir up drama just because you aren’t in a good mood.
As the only sign with a weapon, the Archer can act out defensively when it aspects warrior planet Mars. Knowing when to step away from a bad situation can help you avoid aggressive confrontations. It would be best if everyone stayed in their own lane and avoided arguments if possible. Instead of blowing up at someone who has frustrated you, consider simply walking away. You don’t have to participate as long as you’re aware that winning and having the last word aren’t important. Sometimes giving in makes you the bigger person.
Hidden hostilities and an intense focus on perfection has the potential to wreak havoc but there are plenty of off ramps available today to help us stay away from pushing too hard. Saturn and Uranus are within a degree of the 3rd exact square of this year. Essentially, we need to embrace the slowdown that this square suggests and set aside personal feelings of inadequacy that result from a feeling that we should be doing more to make things move faster. Of course, the approaching Gemini Full Moon on Saturday (8:35 PM PST 27° Gemini/Sagittarius), does not make it easy to take our foot off the gas. In general, we are safer and more productive when we are working within some kind of common effort.
