**NOTE -- I write only one (1) Daily Horoscope for all 12 Sun Signs. The Monthly, Yearly and Generational Horoscopes are tailored to each of the 12 Sun Signs.
The BIG NEWS today is this is the EVE of the Full Moon in Virgo, which you will read about in tomorrow's Daily Horoscope. Today we will experience two (2) major aspects as Mercury squares Mars and Mercury sextiles Pluto. This is interesting because these two aspects are actually the opposite of each other. Mercury squaring Mars enjoys a Good argument or debate, so much so that it can have trouble concentrating. Before this aspect finishes what it is saying, it is already thinking of what it wants to say next. Or while someone is talking, this aspect isn't really listening, it is thinking about what it wants to say next. This causes the essence of the conversation to become lost because you weren't paying attention. The best way to handle this aspect is to write down what you want to say next (take notes) so you can pay attention to what is being said and you won't feel the need to interrupt someone while they are talking. The mind is moving so quick here that jumping to conclusions is often the result more than it isn't. This aspect can also cause headaches because the head (ruled by Mars) becomes overheated. It can also cause nervous issues to arise because Mercury rules the nervous system. This is not the best day to take a test, that's for sure!
This next major aspect Mercury sextile Pluto is intellectually fit. While the first major aspect has a hard time remembering what it wants to say before it forgets, this aspect enjoys study, research, puzzles, coming up with its own opinion and forming ideas. So I can see a clash of one person being more in alignment with the first aspect and the other person being in alignment with this second aspect and impatience ensues because nothing is being said fully or understood clearly. The disruptions are taking away the stimulating conversation.
The cure for this day of communication is to determine which aspect you are more like and then find your audience. The person who is more like the first aspect needs to find someone who will let them talk, which means someone who will listen. The person who is more like the second aspect needs to engage in intellectual pursuits that feed your brain-muscle like a protein shake would feed a weight lifter's muscles.
Mercury sextile Pluto can also take off in a completely different direction to that being sexual. Pluto naturally rules the 8th house of Scorpio, which not only rules the subject matter of 'other people's money' but it also rules sex and intense sexual experiences. Somehow, someway, the conversation morphs into something sexual. You may find yourself sexting (sexual texting) with someone or having phone sex. Since Mercury rules Gemini, the sign of communicationi and Pluto rules sexual Scorpio, this is the classic 'talk dirty to me' placement. Conversations about 'the dead' or 'dying' may come up. There is simply a need to want to go into deeper and often time's darker subject matter. This aspect enjoys mental power. If you are not talking about money or the dead, there is probably a conversation about sex.
