EYE ON THE SKY: MARS ASPECTING MERCURY JAN 17TH
Mars, the planet of aggression and fighting does a sneaky 8th house aspect from Taurus to Sagittarius exactly into Jan. 17th and repeats on Jan. 20th as Mercury is direct again. Hence this aspect has an impact all week and repeats the Dec. 14th first occurrence that happened when Mars was retrograde. 8th House aspects can bring surprises and accidents and so one has to be alert particularly on Tuesdays and Wednesday which are days ruled by Mars and Mercury. If you are ruled by Virgo or Gemini, you need to be particularly alert as Mercury is transiting the 4th house of vehicles for Virgos and the 7th house of relationships and travel for Geminis. If you are running a Mars/Mercury or Mercury/Mars period, you might be most impacted.
The difficult 3-degree orb of the Mars aspect for a whole week can bring arguments and disputes to the forefront, which will impact Virgos and Gemini rising signs strongly. Watch out for the other guy while driving and avoid arguments in the car or getting distracted while this week. Pullover to the side of the road if you are in the car and getting into an argument with a friend. Stay on top of electrical and computer issues and avoid getting into arguments to boost your position or ego. How important is it to be right at the loss of a friend or relationships over a trivial matter.
The aspect can bring about a lot of confusion, anger and miscommunication. Remember to give the benefit of the doubt to people close to you and be ready to forgive errors and miscommunication. We are all human and make mistakes. Be open to more travel problems in the airline industry with delays likely as we saw last Wednesday when the FAA shut down all flights due to a computer error. .
