When Mars trines Neptune today at 9:44 AM EDT, we long to escape from the noise of the world and into the arms of the people we love. This makes us fiercely protective of the intimacy we’ve established with our loved ones, making us extremely sensitive against threats to the peace and security of our close relationships. Be mindful not to throw caution to the wind, however, as you might mistake your fears as real problems, so don’t let your anxiety cloud your vision.
For more specific advice on how your sign can navigate these celestial motions, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, when passionate Mars gives a hug to spiritual Neptune today, you find yourself putting your loved ones first. More than grand gestures and spur-of-the-moment adventures, you enjoy the simple pleasures you get to share with them. However, be careful not to lose yourself in the process of taking care of others, Aries. It’s important that we let ourselves love other people, but not reach a point where you give too much of yourself that you end up having nothing in the end.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’re ardently chasing after your desires today when passionate Mars gives a hug to dreamy Neptune. You might find yourself asking a crush out, inviting your significant other to move in with you, or proposing to a long-time partner. You’re optimistic and confident that you can achieve these goals, but be careful: this could lead to intense self-disappointment when things don’t go according to plan. Know that the world doesn’t always give us what we want even if we work really hard, Taurus, because not everything is within your control, and you must learn to accept that.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, it’s hard not to be materialistic in a world that encourages overconsumption, and that’s exactly how you feel today when impatient Mars partners up with illusory Neptune. It’s hard to hold yourself back from spending, especially when you’re spending on the people you love. But when the universe tells you there’s other ways you can make people happy, listen. If you feel you’ve given too much of yourself, rest—you will find some benefit in spending time by yourself to meditate, rest, and relax from your responsibilities, even if it’s just for a while.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you’re feeling frenzied today as impatient Mars allies with hazy Neptune. Your energy is peaking, and your mind is scattered thinking about all the new hobbies you can start. If you’re single, you might feel impatient to meet a new partner, but don’t be too aggressive or impulsive with your romantic decisions. It’s not a good time to meet new people especially if they came from a group of friends that you wouldn’t usually trust. They might only seem good for you now because your judgment is clouded, but you might regret it in the end when you end up getting hurt.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, when eager Mars works alongside airy Neptune today, you realize that people are predisposed to judge others based on what is projected on the outside, and this frustrates you. You’re annoyed at yourself for being beholden to toxic patterns, and you’re exhausted by romantic partners who can only judge you based on your mistakes without taking time to understand where you’re coming from. Know that people can’t see you for who you truly are if you don’t open yourself up to them, Leo, so don’t avoid vulnerability if you need to be understood.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re normally the skeptical type, Virgo, but when red meets blue as Mars gives a hug to Neptune, you’re starting to give people and different belief systems the benefit of the doubt. It’s a good time to meet people who challenge your ideas and to explore spiritual practices, such as meditation and yoga. If you’re committed, having a heart-to-heart conversation with your partner might help you learn new things about them that could be invigorating for the relationship.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you’ve always been a hopeless romantic, but you might find your career goals getting in the way of your romantic dreams when intense Mars shakes hands with airy Neptune. You want to go on romantic dates, but you have other things to worry about that get in the way of these desires. You’re working hard to further your career, and you don’t know which to prioritize—your desire for love, or your career goals. If you have a partner that is understanding and supportive, they will let you know that they can wait, because true love is patient.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, life has become mundane for you lately, and you want out of this boredom today when impatient Mars meets illusory Neptune. If you’re in a long-term relationship, you might find yourself getting bored with your partner and even fantasizing about a new relationship with someone else. Be wary of these thoughts, scorpion. We often take for granted the continuity of true, healthy love, and you might only be missing the thrill of a new relationship and not actually falling out of love with your partner. If you’re single, be careful with meeting new people—you’re stuck in a rose-tinted haze right now, and you might not be able to see people for who they are.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, when intense Mars dances with delusive Neptune, you’re seeing all the problems in your personal life all at once, and it’s overwhelming. You seek intimacy in your close relationships, which is why you’re scrambling to fix all of the problems that threaten their stability, but you’re too overstimulated to focus on one issue and actually solve it. Having a partner that might be too demanding of your energy and attention can only add to the stress. Pause and take a deep breath, archer. You can’t fix anything if you’re too stressed to function.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, when energetic Mars meets airy Neptune today, you’re feeling passion and intensity in your romantic life today, and you’re absolutely not used to it. This intensity is a double-edged sword, because it can either make or break the relationship. Not knowing how to handle it can cause problems, but learning how to handle this high energy can improve your relationships. Don’t let your desire for romance cloud your judgment—your loneliness might blur the line between romantic and platonic attraction, and not knowing which is which could ruin your personal relationships.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’re struggling at home right now, Aquarius, and when energetic Mars meets illusory Neptune, you might find yourself breaking your back at work in order to escape from your personal problems. You have a high energy right now that makes you very productive, but this makes you actively ignore the problems brewing at home. If you’re having problems with your partner, sweeping these under the rug can only damage the relationship in the long run. Productivity is great, Aquarius, but it’s not so great when you’re using it to distract yourself from fixing your problems.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, when passionate Mars holds hands with illusory Neptune today, you’re allowing yourself to be in pursuit of love once again, but you must take caution if you don’t want to get hurt. You’re stuck in a dreamy, romantic haze, but be careful not to project your romantic fantasies to the wrong person—it will only end up in heartbreak if you do. This aloof mood can also create misunderstandings in your personal life, so know when to pull your feet back to Earth when they call up to you.
