They say home is where the heart is, but this week it's more like home is where the pressure is. On January 5, Mars and Jupiter are squaring off, creating a tendency to push situations and feelings to the extremes. We may lash out in a temperamental or passive-aggressive way if we sense our feelings are being neglected.

There is an exaggerated effect around arguments and the way we expend our energy in general so expect to ride the crazy train a bit when dealing with those closest to you. This tension and conflict will be more evident in our partnerships (Mars in Libra) and family dynamics (Jupiter in Cancer) but will have residual resonance throughout our career and other personal dynamics. When there is tension at home it has a tendency to ripple to other parts of our lives.

The best way to navigate this explosive energy is to stay as centered and direct as possible. Try not to allow your emotions to take over in a way that causes you to be reactive or moody. In fact, take as much space as you need to process the pressure without acting on whatever is making you feel triggered.

If you sense something is unfair, ask yourself if there's a way to approach the situation with detachment and compassion before throwing accusations that set things off in a destructive way. It's so easy to do or say things we will regret under this influence. Clinging fiercely to integrity and the higher road is essential now.
