Today, the Sun heads toward an alignment with impulsive Mars. You can accomplish a lot by tapping into the bravery, courage, initiative, and enthusiasm of this combination, particularly related to your income, business matters, and talents or other resources and assets. Be self-aware, and aim to downplay or sidestep the more egocentric, impatient, and rash side of this combo. Impulsive spending is a potential problem, for example. You may very well need to take a risk, but the more aware of your needs that you are, the better judge you are of your next move. Very much like driving a car, you need to scan what’s behind, beside, and ahead of you to make the right decisions when the need to do so comes on suddenly. Defend yourself if necessary, but don’t lash out unnecessarily.

Looking back before you move forward makes the most sense and is a good use of this cycle.

You have a healthier relationship with your need for pleasure, joy, and friendship in the weeks ahead. Today, we’re heading to a Sun-Mars alignment in your sector of learning, expansion, and beliefs–an area of your solar chart that’s holding most of the activity these days. You may feel a strong desire to stand up for your ideas or to state your case. You might crave more action, life experience, or a change of pace.
