Mercury squares Mars. This is an argument aspect. With Mars changing signs tomorrow, this is also an accident aspect. People are too impatient.
Today the Dalai Lama* says: The opponent of peace of mind is not external but is within us. As the American psychologist, Aaron Beck pointed out to me, when we get angry, 90% of our anger is our own mental projection.

Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves. Socrates said an unexamined life is not worth living, and another ancient Greek said, Know thyself. We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.
