Mars enters Aquarius

Mars in Aquarius will make you combative, aggressive, and unlikely to yield on any contested point. This is good for pushing through any piece of business that got lost in the labyrinth of bureaucracy and for holding certain people’s feet to the fire. However it’s less than ideal for tolerating different points of view or patiently building consensus. You will think that you are being your same reasonable self, but you aren’t. You’re apt to be inflexible, heavy-handed, and maybe even paranoid. But that’s OK. Just give loved ones and friends advance warning and know that many of the causes you’re fighting for won’t make sense now but will in about 4 1/2 weeks. That’s when your actions will be vindicated. Signs most affected: Aries, Scorpio, and Aquarius
