Retrograde Mercury has recently made its conjunction with the Sun. This energy is marvelous for empathic thinking, listening, communication and conversation. If you're in a positive position in life, and others are not, then this energy can help you lend a compassionate ear or word. Mercury also sextiles Mars in Capricorn which presents a great opportunity to be assertive and push words and thoughts for optimum force and effect. If you use your hands for creative work such as painting, playing a musical instrument, sculpting and healing then take advantage of the intuitive power and assertion of the power available right now.
Because the Aries Moon squares Mars today there could be an over emphasis on emoting in angrier and confrontational ways for those who are extremely frustrated, yet Mars loves the sign of Capricorn and Aries so this square has the capability of great power and accomplishment. It's a good day to be forceful and assertive and communicate in ways that don't turn people off.
A brief word about the coronavirus. Obviously I'm not a doctor and this is genuinely a very serious situation. A word of caution: the news and information is coming down while Mercury is retrograde in the sign of Pisces, the placement of its detriment. There is much confusion, fog and haze in all this. We really do not know. Pisces is a sign that blurs the boundaries, inflates and over sensitizes. Do not expect to get logical facts or answers right now. We really have to wait until Mercury turns direct after March 10 and even more when the planet of logical communication enters Aries on April 12.
