Your way or the highway? Ease up on the ultimatums today as a tense Mercury-Saturn square cautions against drawing lines in the sand. When it comes to dealing with loved ones, work toward compromise instead of stubbornly sticking to your guns. A little empathy goes a long way during this transit, so try to see things from the other person’s perspective. If you’re locked in an ongoing conflict, avoid playing the blame game. Instead of just focusing on what the other person did wrong, could you also own up to your mistakes? No one’s perfect, Aries, so stop expecting that…of others or yourself! See the full week >
Quick reminder, Taurus: No matter how organized you try to be, you can’t control EVERY aspect of your life. You might as well go with the flow today as mental Mercury in your structured sixth house gets checked by auditor Saturn. Don’t let your perfectionist streak drive you (and everyone around you) to the edge. Just because something doesn’t turn out the way you expected doesn’t mean it’s a loss. Let go and trust in the universe! On the other hand, if you’ve been a bit too laid-back recently, consider this your cue to rein in the indulgences and get the mission back on track.

It may just be last-minute jitters, in which case you can ignore that internal voice of self-doubt. But if you haven’t fully thought this through, perhaps it’s time to pump the brakes.
