Tell it like it is at work this week. With communication planet Mercury aligned with assertive Mars, it’s time to speak out. If you’ve got a bright idea but have been nervous about sharing it, Mercury and Mars together provide confidence and courage. Just don’t get attached to everyone else seeing things the way you do.

There’s a stubborn streak in the air and while normally flighty types will find it easier to focus, if you’re set in your ways you may resist innovation even when it’s in your best interest. Being open to alternatives doesn’t have to mean instant change, but it may mean having an open-ended conversation.

When Mercury and Mars combine (only once a year) it’s time to act on your ideas, take charge with communication and let the facts inspire your actions. Information supports progress now, but with this pairing happening in Taurus, it’s the slow and steady approach that’ll work best.

This particular Mercury-Mars alignment occurs close to the karmic South Node, showing it’s a great week to give voice to issues from the past, and finally gain closure on old events. If your career path hasn’t been as smooth as you’d hoped, make peace with the realities that have led you to where you are, and focus instead on what you can do or change moving forward.

If you’re in the market for new work, consider reconnecting with past contacts. Old ideas can be revamped in new ways. Looking back may be the key to future success. A little sustained effort can go a long way to manifesting professional plans now.
