VIRGO (Aug. 22 – Sept. 21)
Be careful not to put people’s noses out of joint when Mercury conjoins Mars in Capricorn on January 27th. On one hand you’re perfectly right to point out a fault or defect. This could have done some serious damage if it wasn’t addressed. However the problem with Mercury/Mars conjunctions is in the delivery. There tends to be a brusqueness combined with a snippy condescension that can be extremely off-putting. Nobody likes being made to feel stupid and this is something you’ll need to sensitive about if you don’t want to undermine your message. Taking the time to present criticisms politely and constructively always pays off.
