The Sun at 10 degrees Sagittarius forms a square to Mars at 10 degrees Virgo at 5:08 am PT.

Watch out, because tempers could be short today. It seems like everyone got up on the wrong side of the bed! We’re grumpy, coming on way too strong without even realizing it, reacting to the slightest provocations and making mountains out of molehills.

No one likes being told what to do, so we’ll see a lot of people doing just what they want to do today — and you know how annoying that can be. There will be some who behave like hotheads and others who will be more than a little competitive.

Before the day is over, there are sure to be more than a few ruffled feathers. So if we’re feeling grouchy, let’s keep that prickly energy to ourselves. Avoid arguments and temper tantrums. Exercise much more caution than usual, too, watching especially for cuts, burns and accidents, particularly ones involving the head (ouch!).

If you have Sun square Mars as a natal aspect:

A little testy, aren’t we? Easily frustrated? Headstrong? You’re not shy, that’s for sure, and you’re ready to roll on a new project almost the moment it formulates in your brain. Problem is, you’re so impatient that you neglect to indulge in any long-term planning, so that no matter how good your idea is, soon you are embroiled in details and engineering principles that you didn’t take time to consider before you started. No wonder you have problems — and no wonder that you wonder how you could have tripped yourself up yet again.

Another problem? That short fuse of yours, which can be ignited by nothing more than a funny look or unconsidered word. Before you know it, you’re in a towering rage. That would explain why your mother had you in Anger Management classes when you were seven!

Seriously, this is an area where you will have your work cut out for you, and fortunately, an area where you can make a huge amount of progress. With effort and attention you can turn that short fuse into a legendary ability to express your assertion and anger in the most effective ways. And isn’t that a lot better than hauling off and clobbering someone?
