The Moon and Mars are doing a dance today called mutual reception. The Moon is in Aries, which is ruled by Mars. Mars is in Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. This creates an understanding between them and strengthens their connection.
The Moon becomes restless and independent in Aries while Mars is moody, broody and reactive in Cancer. They will egg each other on so you can expect heightened emotions and outbursts based on instinct. People will be easily offended and the best way to maneuver around this is to be sensitive (Cancer) to what they express (Mars).
These planets are forming a tense square which will become exact around 2:55 PM EDT. By late afternoon or evening the emotional tempests will have blown over. But if you want to get through the earlier part of today, walking on eggshells might not be a bad idea.
