Religion, politics, and current events can be controversial topics as know-it-all Mercury opposes crusader Mars on your communication axis. A conversation may reveal that not everyone supports the same team. Aggressively asserting your point won’t change their position. Likewise, someone won’t change your mind by being defensive. If you can’t have a civil discussion, avoid touchy subjects. Mercury syncs with pragmatic Saturn, suggesting that adult discourse is possible — but only if you act maturely and don’t let problematic points of view trigger you. You can’t dismiss everyone whose opinions you find offensive. With some individuals, you’ll have to agree to disagree.
