As Mars squares Uranus this morning, we refuse to conform and choose to express our unique selves instead. We believe that in a world that punishes uniqueness, being yourself is a rebellion. So we go against the tides. We refuse to do anything that fits the norm. We show the world who we are, even if it perceives us to be peculiar freaks. We embrace the freak show, and use it to our advantage as we march in our vibrant identities.
To learn how Mars’s unbalanced aspect with Uranus affects your sign, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, your passion for love and romance and your desire to go against the world’s culture of materialism clash today as Mars forms an unbalanced aspect with Uranus. You want to be loved, but you wonder if it’s selfish to love and expect to be loved back. To give affection, and to expect to receive it in return. But wanting to be loved isn’t selfish, Aries—it’s a basic human instinct. Don’t beat yourself up for wanting to receive something you need.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, today you find yourself struggling to choose between self love and selflessness for your family as Mars squares up against Uranus. You’re strict with yourself about putting your own needs first, but you feel you’re going against your personal duties if you don’t take care of your family above all else. But how are you going to care for others if you don’t care for yourself first? You need to learn that you can’t take care of others if you can’t even take care of yourself, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, you want to say what needs to be said, but you’re afraid of the hate you’re going to get when you choose to be honest. You know you need to address the problems in your relationship, but you’re afraid your partner will run away if you show them what you need. So you choose to hide your feelings instead, afraid of the change they will bring when you let them out. Know that your honesty won’t drive the right people away, Gemini. The ones who truly love you won’t be afraid of the truth.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, today nothing makes you feel happier than spending on yourself. However, you also wonder if this brings you real happiness. You want to meet new people, fall in love with novelty and spontaneity, and make connections that will last a lifetime. It’s true that money can only bring us so much happiness, Cancer, so make the best of your time by meeting new people that can make you so much happier than any material thing ever could.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, with Mars in your first house of the self, nothing is too intimidating as you take on new adventures that spark excitement in your life. Strangers who show you their admiration make you feel good about yourself, but you don’t want to be perceived as shallow. You believe you will achieve great things in your career by going against the norm, and this makes you so attractive to potential romantic partners. Don’t be afraid of showing the world who you are, Leo. You are a force to be reckoned with, so don’t reduce yourself just so other people can be comfortable around you.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you’ve never been good at handling your feelings, which makes you an expert at hiding them. However, today your feelings are especially strong, and it takes more effort to hide them under the surface. You don’t trust people, which makes you avoid meeting new ones. But you’ve recently met someone who makes you feel all the things you’ve never felt before, and it makes you so uncomfortable. Remember that everyone has feelings, Virgo. You’re not supposed to be stone-cold to function well—you’re human, and you feel things, too, just like everyone else.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you’ve always been fiercely protective of your friends, which is why you often personally compromise your own needs just to meet theirs. But unfair compromise is not the only way you can show love and establish intimacy with your friends or romantic partner, and you’re having trouble understanding this. Know that you will learn more about intimacy as you grow older and wiser, Libra. It is uncomfortable, for sure, but there’s no better way to grow than to face the discomfort of change.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, you are ambitious, and this becomes even more apparent today as you seek to achieve great things in your career. But you wonder how this ambition affects your personal relationships. Will your friends and romantic partners change their perception of you when you become successful? Will they think you’re too proud? Will they be scared away by your big dreams? You don’t have to worry, Scorpio. If you’re with the right people, they will celebrate your successes with you instead of being eaten away by their jealousy as they see you succeed.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You have a heart for adventure, Sagittarius. That’s why you’re so passionate about meeting new people and learning about their different perspectives and beliefs. But you know that often, exploring uncharted waters can be scary, which drives you to overthink—what if you entertain a person who’s different from your usual type, and they end up hurting you? You don’t want to have regrets, so you’re paralyzed from making a choice. Don’t lose your desire for adventure, Sagittarius. As long as you don’t throw caution to the wind, I’m sure you’ll find that every adventure is worth the risk.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Intimacy can be difficult for you, Capricorn, but you want a lasting connection so bad. You want someone who will understand you, who will accept you as you are. But the inner skeptic in you doesn’t really believe that’s possible. Love and romance are for fools. And you’re not willing to change this belief because you fear you will get hurt if you do—not to mention it hurts your ego to be wrong. You have to learn to welcome change if you want your life to change, Capricorn. You’ll only get the love you need if you believe it’s possible.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you believe life is meaningful because of the relationships you make, but you’re having a hard time mending the relationship you have with your family. You don’t really believe they can change, which makes you ignorant of the efforts they make to mend what has been broken. If you believe in love, perhaps you can allow yourself to believe in people’s capacity to change, Aquarius. Acknowledging the hurt they caused is important, but it’s just as important to accept their willingness to change.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you will do everything to protect yourself from damage and trauma, and this is mainly because you know how it feels to be hurt beyond repair. You know people’s words can hurt, which is why you can’t forgive a simple ‘sorry.’ Sorry doesn’t mend what’s been broken. Sorry doesn’t undo the pain they caused. And it’s perfectly fine to not forgive if that’s what you need, Pisces. Don’t feel like you’re obliged to forgive in order to move on, especially if they don’t show a willingness and commitment to change.
