March is an emotional time. The moodiness of Pisces season tends to linger longer than the weather, and this year Mercury is in retrograde most of the month. To help you get through it, we rounded up some one-word mantras by sign. Breathe in; breathe out; repeat your mantra.

Aries: Trust
You’re not alone, even if it feels like it, Aries. Your loved ones want the absolute best for you, and if you place your trust in them, they will lighten your load.

Taurus: Strides
A little progress is OK, Taurus. Your hunger for success is as big as your hunger for food (which is legendary), but incremental steps are just as meaningful as large strides.

Gemini: Heart
You’re a curious bird, but keep your time and energy focused only on what you care about, not just what captures your attention. Saying yes to distractions is saying no to what’s really important.

Cancer: Remember
Your memories are with you all the time, even the painful ones you dare not contemplate. Make a little room to appreciate those wounds, because without them there is no you.

Leo: Voice
You’re usually demonstrative, but before you launch into the grand gesture, see if you can plainly articulate how you feel. Hearing yourself out loud may change how you wish to proceed. 

Virgo: Scale
If you’re entangled in a competitive dynamic unanchored to something you actually care about, you’re wasting your time and energy. Weigh the importance against the cost because two of your most valuable possessions happen to be your time and energy. 

Libra: Forward
Take one extra step each day, whether it’s toward a career, making a piece of art or literally walking a little further. It’s what self-esteem is made of.

Scorpio: Meditate
Underneath your serene exterior, you are buzzing with anxious energy. It may feel noisy and isolating, but you have the power to quiet your own mind.

Sagittarius: Give
You don’t have to save the entire world to do some good (although it’d be nice if you could). Even if it’s just helping your sister move, your contributions will be felt. 

Capricorn: Lead
You’re the parent you’ve been looking for. When you’re at a frustrating crossroads, remember that the ability to navigate comes from you, not the map.

Aquarius: Study
You think you know everything, and maybe you do, but everyone needs to go back to school sometimes. Consume other points of view this month, even if they only strengthen your own. 

Pisces: Oxygen
As the airlines say, “Put on your own oxygen mask first before helping those around you.” So this month, practice a little ethical selfishness, Pisces. You’re often self-sacrificing, but notice how much more helpful you can be if you nourish yourself before others.
