There will be a Conjunction of Mars and Mercury where they will share the same right ascension with Mars passing to the north of Mercury.

Today you will enjoy a battle of wits with another. This will result in you becoming oversensitive to criticism from others and you will feel misunderstood. Insight, wisdom and knowledge are some of your natural gifts, but you may need to master self-discipline to make your point. When communicating, refocus your attention from how you’re feeling inside to how you think the other person is feeling based on that person’s nonverbal cues. If the person seems uncomfortable with where the conversation is heading, shift gears. Though some people enjoy debating politics, religion, and sex, other people would rather keep things light. Interacting with others on such topics can make for enjoyable conversation. If you assume everyone feels as you do, though, it’s likely you’ll get started on the wrong foot and end up with it in your mouth. Music is a very good healer if you feel misunderstood. Don’t let the world beat you down, you will be appreciated sooner or later.
