Resolving the Solar War with Mars

By Holiday Mathis

June 7, 2020 6 min read

The tension between the sun and Mars is still palpable today. Consider walking away from the conflict, dropping the argument or ending the game with a draw. Also, if there's one person not worth warring against, it's you. Get on your own side, even if you're mad at yourself for some reason. Forgive and help yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It only takes one connection to make your personal life go from being a stale routine to an inspired journey. You'll make that connection today and a transformation will occur in the weeks to come.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You provide what's needed and serve with a smile. Because of this, you're getting what everyone successful person needs — positive relationships with people who want you to do well.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll be gifted with an emotion that is one click beyond passion and desire: rage. Rage doesn't have to be angry or negative, but it's always powerful, and best focused on what's important to you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When the solution eludes you, tackle it backward, inside out or upside down — any other way than the usual. What's needed is a fresh approach.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whomever you align yourself with, you grow to be more like. It isn't necessary for you to have a personal relationship with your role models. You get to choose them from the whole wide world.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your famous adaptability will kick in. From the outside, your behavior may look illogical, but there's definitely a method to your madness. When an unusual situation crops up, an unusual reaction is warranted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The beautiful, smart and loving person who comes into your life today will be you. This is the best sort of reunion, meeting yourself again with the recognition that it's been a while and you're better than ever.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People are notoriously bad at knowing what will make them happy, but you'll defy the odds, pointing yourself directly at the motherlode of your own happiness.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Passions build slowly. At first, you don't even realize what you want. When leanings turn to yearnings and become undeniable in their message, it's a blessing that doesn't feel like one.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It's now expected that you'll give a gift. Of course, it's not the amount you spend that matters but that you get it right. Ask for help, even if you have to ask the eventual receiver.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Emotional skill and intelligence can be earned through both negative and positive experiences. Today will bring scenarios you will use as examples of what to do and what not to do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The possessions that you get the most value out of are the ones you use every week and maybe every day. As for the others, the more you can let go of, the lighter you'll feel.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 7). You'll be called on to do something you haven't done before. You'll be both inspired and inspirational. A group will form around your leadership as you apply past experience to figure things out. Results beyond your expectations will come at the start of the new year. Your family grows in March 2021. Capricorn and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 33, 25, 17 and 42.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Curiosity is a slightly uncomfortable state of mind, as it relies on the tension between knowing and not knowing. The tension is resolved with an answer. So tenacious is our need for answers that our brains will just fill in the blanks with anything that enables us to push forward.

The human brain craves certainty. Without it, we are paralyzed. Certainty facilitates action, commitment and movement. Where there is no certainty (and reality offers very little of it) humans do the next best thing; we make a good guess and come up with a theory that will allow us to go onward. If to assume is human, then not to assume is superhuman.

Anyone can say, "I'm right," and live to defend that. But it takes humility, higher thinking and a willingness to be uncomfortable inside the tension of curiosity to go to the next cognitive level — to question, wonder, revel in mystery and leave the loop open to possibility. The square of the Gemini sun and Neptune will prove us wrong this week. This won't be a problem so long as we leave our pride and our need to be right out of the equation. Only then will there be enough room for new possibilities.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: "Arrested Development's" Michael Cera is working on the comedy "Jonty" about unlikely producers of a terrible Broadway play. The Gemini actor was born when the sun, Mercury and Venus were all in Gemini, indicating a quick wit and a love of conversation, especially the exchange of new ideas. Moon and Mars in soulful Pisces point to deep artistic and empathetic talents.
