Mercury conjunct Mars

You have a message to deliver and you’ll deliver it no matter what. This is good because what you have to share could be the very thing that rights a wrong or salvages a situation.  However if you want to avoid “beat the messenger” syndrome – i.e. being blamed for being the bearer of bad news – then you will need to think about what you want to say and how you want to say it.  Mercury tends to become alarmist and provocative when it gets around Mars because Mars likes to mix things up.  Take the time to ask yourself how you would want to receive this kind of information if positions were reversed. It will make a world of difference.  Signs most affected: Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, and Virgo
