Mercury is Opposite Mars at 7:06 AM
This morning, Mercury in Libra opposes Mars in Aries, setting off conflict between our logic and our passion. If you’ve been holding onto resentment or anger, it might boil over today. With Mercury and Mars facing off, this will quite possibly come out in the form of angry words.

It’s an opportune time to try something new, or to break out of routines that have either become stale or unhealthy. If you’re currently in a relationship that’s fully run its course, that could be brought to the surface today.
