Pluto and Mercury engage in a frictional alignment today, and this cautions you to slow your roll when it comes to communicating your needs to other people. Make sure that you’re not being too abrasive or aggressive in your manner of speaking, especially since Mercury’s spending its final few days in hot-headed Aries. Use the grounding energy of Pluto in Capricorn to take your time to think things through before vocalizing your opinions. Not everyone’s going to be on your same wavelength, so it’s best to keep your cool and be solution-oriented rather than freak out and become tyrannical, Scorpio. Practice deep breathing whenever you find yourself being triggered, or put the conversation on pause and only return to it once you feel zen again. Nothing is worth getting all worked up, so don’t let outside circumstances disturb your inner peace. Calmness brings clarity.
