You may need to make a tactical retreat today, especially if you find yourself at odds with someone who is clearly out of your league in terms of power and influence. Make sure everyone understands you perfectly before moving on. This might though be a good time to seek expert advice about your finances — but only if you are prepared to act on it. Take advantage of an opportunity that someone else has missed and make yourself some money.
If someone attacks your reputation today you must defend yourself. If you let them get away with saying things about you that are not true it will encourage them to be even more reckless in the future. Hit back quick and hit back hard.

A Mars-Saturn square this morning can seem to apply the brakes to projects and plans that have been moving too fast for their own good, dear Sagittarius. Keep in mind, however, that this is merely a slowdown, not a halt.
For others, worries and concerns put a damper on your mood. You may be fearful of change on a basic security level, yet attracted to taking some risks, and this poses a dilemma now. Take your time, avoid pushing in the face of resistance, but do pay attention to your responsibilities and fulfill them to the best of your ability. You might be in the position to announce a project launch, come to a turning point in a course or educational path, or experience a sudden desire to advance your education.
Transportation or communication problems can be part of the picture for some of you, but these can lead to alternatives that end up serving you very well.

Mars in your home and family sector forms a challenging aspect to Saturn in your sign early today, dear Capricorn, and you can experience a feeling of being unsupported or overly burdened.
You may be digging in your heels, especially if others appear to be pushing or rushing you, or if they are a little too brusque or insensitive for your liking. A slow, patient, and moderate approach is the most successful one today. Fortunately, even if you start the day feeling a little restricted, as the day moves forward you feel freer and lighter. Also today, the Lunar Eclipse can act as a cosmic push to make final changes related to improving your financial situation.
Over the coming weeks, there may be some drama with money or an intimate relationship. You may be seeing an issue surrounding values, respect, money, talents, or possessions more clearly once the power of your feelings normalizes. Watch for defensiveness and sensitivity this morning, dear Aquarius, but do consider that this is a time for the motivation to plan more responsibly or clearly as Mars and Saturn form a square aspect.
You may be dealing with communication or transportation delays, but while they appear to set you back, they may very well point you in the right direction. You might now notice details that you missed due to your haste the first time through. Finish up those things that need a little more attention rather than pushing ahead right now.
Aim to tie up loose ends and avoid speaking too soon or too impulsively about a matter. Detach yourself and take breaks to help manage potential frustrations better.

There can be essential realizations, epiphanies, and clarifications occurring now. A Mars-Saturn square can challenge us to face up to reality or to manage a delay or slowdown early today, dear Pisces. Tension and blockages are likely to revolve around your social life or finances, or there can be a conflict between sticking with tried-and-true methods and going out on a limb.
You may think up a better way to go about it at a later time.
Fortunately, tension breaks up as the day advances, and we head towards a very lovely Venus-Jupiter alignment. Also today, the Lunar Eclipse may point to a turning point for health or work matters. This can be a final cosmic push to sort out work problems.
