Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You have your sights set on climbing the ladder of success as high as possible now. The unrelenting Mars-Pluto conjunction activates your 10th House of Career, granting you a bottomless well of energy to fuel your rise to power. You have little patience for anyone who stands in your way today, but it’s still important to treat any opposition fairly and with respect. Author Les Brown wrote, “Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.”
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Your indefatigable determination enables you to work long hours now without any obvious signs of wear and tear. But your overconfidence can be your downfall. You might not want to reveal any uncertainty while the Mars-Pluto conjunction in your 9th House of Big Ideas amplifies your stubbornness. However, your willingness to look at differing points of view without feeling obligated to change your mind is a sign of intelligence. Ultimately, your willpower enables you to resolve any conflict as long as you keep your priorities in order.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
People might not realize how interdependent you are with others now. The unrelenting Mars-Pluto conjunction lands in your 8th House of Shared Resources, drawing you into discussions that set the stage for your next wave of progress. Unfortunately, your restless mind can be easily led astray. Although change comes slowly, honoring your core values is an integral part of transforming financial or intimate relationships. Sportscaster Erin Andrews said, “Success doesn’t happen overnight. Keep your eye on the prize and don’t look back.”
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You could feel as if you are overwhelmed by someone’s expectations, trapping you into a corner today. The dramatic Mars-Pluto conjunction falls in your 7th House of Public Life and it seems as if you don’t have a choice now when others are depending on you. However, circumstances beyond your control may force you to raise the stakes by showing your vulnerability and risking rejection. If people see that you’re not trying to escape your commitments, they won’t need to be so aggressive in their demands. Jeffrey Holland wrote, “The crowning characteristic of love is always loyalty.”
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You are not in a compromising mood today and may go head to head with an authority figure. Unfortunately, the potent Mars-Pluto conjunction intensifies your 6th House of Work and challenges you to act on your convictions even if you know you are courting trouble. Thankfully, there is an invisible army of self-righteousness, reinforcing your behavior and turning you into an unstoppable force. Nevertheless, riding roughshod over others will elicit a backlash of energy that could transform your easy win into mission impossible. The greatest victories are not won against other people but won against yourself.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You see your ambitious drive to succeed as a strategy game, and you’ll continue to thrive as long as you enjoy yourself along the way. Unfortunately, you may get so caught up with the idea of winning that you lose track of your original intention. The passionate Mars-Pluto conjunction energizes your 5th House of Spontaneity, reminding you to focus on your own creative activities rather than wasting this regenerative force on a fight. Oscar Wilde wrote, “The purpose of life is self-expression. Expressing your essence entirely is what we live for.”
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Although you might try to change the dynamics of a relationship today, it still seems as if a close friend or relative is making unreasonable demands. Your frustration builds if you believe that you are in a losing scenario. Nevertheless, the fearless Mars-Pluto conjunction occurs in your 4th House of Security, strengthening your convictions and urging you to stand up for yourself, even against a power greater than yours. Emotional suppression isn’t the solution; instead focus your anger with intention and channel its force to clear the air. The truth shall set you free.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You are extremely pragmatic in your approach to working with others now. However, your passion could get the best of you if you react with fear as the emotional Mars-Pluto conjunction in your 3rd House of Communication triggers memories of feeling powerless. However, it’s possible to find a secure place in your belief structure where you can stand firm. Concentrate on your inner resolve and only agree to do something if it resonates with your heart. Negotiation is not an option today; you’re not required to go along for the ride unless it’s heading in your direction.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You are committed to following through with your plans now, no matter what resistance you might encounter. Thankfully, your willpower is unshakable as assertive Mars joins relentless Pluto in your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. However, the most problematic obstacles appear if your success is dependent upon someone else’s failure. Paradoxically, you look the tallest when you lean down to help another. Professor Zhu Feng wrote, “Cooperation means win-win. Confrontation means lose-lose.”
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Weeks of intense strategizing and logistical planning are put to the test today as you reach a critical point in your process. A volcanic conjunction between combative Mars and ruthless Pluto in your 1st House of Self pushes you to the edge of your patience, requiring you to hit the launch button or start dismantling the rocket ship. There is no shortage of passion and power to fuel your ambitious ascension, but you may be concerned that you are taking a good idea too far. Nevertheless, there is no middle ground now. You must either go big or go home.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Although you might be afraid of what you will discover if you turn over every rock today, you can’t help but look anyway. You are driven to see the unseen and are obsessed with finding the truth. Courageous Mars joins dark Pluto in your 12th House of Spiritual Mystery, forcing you to dig deep into your subconscious, face your hidden fears and let go of the past. Your wishes can come true once you discover what you must leave behind. Olympic athlete Donovan Bailey said, “Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.”
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It might feel as if you’re working harder than ever but not accomplishing as much as you wish. Your friends or coworkers have paved the way for you to take charge, and a domineering Mars-Pluto conjunction in your 11th House of Community assists your rise to the challenge. In fact, you are empowered with such strong determination today that you can blast your way through almost any obstacle. Connect with the deepest feelings in your heart to find the stamina to achieve success.
