You may be thrown off course and your plans challenged due to circumstances beyond your control.

Whether you welcome these changes or not, the shake down is necessary for long-term gains.

Power struggles arise forcing you to discern when to stand your ground and when to compromise. Don’t let the need to have the last word, or to convert others to your views cause you to burn important bridges.

Battle of wills and egos can ensue especially in relationship to authority figures.

Don’t get stuck in power struggles. Manipulating others or trying to force your views or will on others is not the best use of this heightened energy.

Jealousy and anger are triggered easily. Be mindful of how you react to these emotions. Your instincts can be heightened by Pluto, though Mars will lead you to jump to conclusions before all facts are known.

Your increased drive and ambition can lead you to exhaustion and burn out if you are not careful. Hasty decisions may be regretted later.

Being in too much of a hurry can lead to mistakes or even accidents. Don’t let your drive to succeed cause you to disregard sound advice from others or make reckless decisions that end up costing you in the long-term.

Your ambition is given a boost, but it may be a boost in the wrong direction or excessive energy that just becomes nervous tension rather than being productive.

You can express your frustration and anger over the inconveniences you are likely to face at this time, but that same energy can be better spent rerouting your path.

Avoid argument for the sake of argument at this time as you may do irreversible damage to some relationships by insisting on having your way without considering others’ points of view or considering what your ultimate objective is in the first place.
