Mercury Square Mars...

starts on April 4 (using a 1 degree orb), is exact on April 5 at 2.17pm in Kilmore, leaves on April 6.  Mercury at 3 degrees and 48 minutes of Taurus, Mars at 3 degrees and 48 minutes of Leo.

Mercury represents the way we connect to others, communicate and gather information... Mars is a fiery and impatient influence and the combination of these energies through the square suggests that they will clash, perhaps creating an atmosphere where we will all lack patience and need to practice our diplomacy skills more than usual!

The combination of Mercury and Mars in a hard aspect (conjunction, square or opposition) is often associated with harsh words and general irritability.  However, it can also mean that certain truths are spoken that need expression.  By looking at where this square is falling in our birth charts we can get a feel for where we need to 'clear the air'.  Because this square falls in fixed signs it seems that part of the reason for needing to go through this process is because the people and situations involved are a bit 'stuck' or 'stubborn'.

There is good news though, the square represents a cross-road being reached.  You can also look to see which houses are ruled by Mercury (ones with Gemini or Virgo on the cusp), and Mars (ones with Aries or Scorpio on cusp) in order to get a better of idea of what or who may be part of the picture.

If you have personal planets or points in Taurus and/or Leo then you may feel this transit more strongly than others.
