I’ve had a short fuse for a couple of days. If it wasn’t enough to have transiting Mars squaring my natal Mars during a full moon yesterday, the sun conjoins my natal Mars today.
I think that this would all be okay if I could run around outside, but winter finally arrived where I live and the forecast for the next few weeks looks terrible. I could try to channel this energy into something creative, but I just don’t feel like it. Sitting at this computer forcing myself to write is the last thing I want to do.
My daily horoscope on astro.com even alludes to my restlessness. It interprets the sun conjunct Mars transit as follows:
“This is an excellent day for starting a new project, particularly one that you can work on by yourself, without having to take orders or coordinate other people’s actions. You feel very vigorous and have a high level of physical energy, so you really need to be physically active today. One of the worst ways to handle this influence is to work quietly at a desk. You would quickly become itchy and irritable as your repressed energies try to find an outlet. It is important that you can identify with whatever you do today. Your ego energies are high, and you demand to be recognized as an individual. If you are not given this recognition, you are likely to become angry and easily involved in disputes. There is no question that unless you are totally occupied, you will be much more irritable than usual today.”
So, I guess I’m going to hop onto my spin bike and see if that helps. Maybe I’ll do something strength training, and some yoga, too. After that, I have no idea what I’m going to do. I’d love to start a new project, like the passage above recommends, but I’m not really sure how that will work out considering the Mercury is on the verge of going retrograde. Sitting at the computer waiting for inspiration to overcome me seems like a terrible strategy during a Mercury station.
Thankfully, I should be feeling a lot less irritable by Monday when the sun conjoins my natal Venus. I don’t know how much more of this I can take. Until then, I’m just going to crash around my house until I’m too sore to do anything else.
