Mercury aligns with Mars today so watch out for quick thoughts and words....We might need to slow things down, to pause and reflect, rather than jump to conclusions or to speak too hastily.
Mercury rules thoughts and communications. Mars rules desires and actions. Their combination encourages us to speak about our desires and to act upon our ideas. We are eager to contribute to the conversation, our thoughts come fast and furious. But that means we can more easily say too much and/or not listen enough.
All forms of communication are sped up. But, we must be careful not to be so quick, and seemingly "intelligent", that we lose the balance that comes with giving some time for reflection.
Sometimes quickness wins, but being thorough and steady is a truer sign of intelligence. We must also remember that our minds require mutual stimulation for true growth. Therefore, we must make an even greater effort now to listen to one another.
