Mercury Square or Opposite Mars
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Mercury square or opposite your natal Mars. This is a time when you are likely to be agitated. You may be prone to impulsive actions, uncurtailed speech, or slips of the tongue. So you can probably expect a fair amount of hostility. Avoid negotiations now until the air clears. You are capable of debate and argument at this time if this is what is required of you. Just be careful about going over the top in a way that leaves lasting hard feelings as you are likely to have a very sharp tongue. Be careful while operating a car or handling knives or other sharp objects. Dealings with the police today could cost you.
If Mars is lord of your 1st house, you are likely to get into arguments if you inject too much of your ego into what you say. On the other hand, you may have to deal with others who act this way towards you.
If lord of your 2nd, you are prone to rash actions in finance. A check may bounce or another financial issue could cause worries.
