Your Weekly Horoscopes: March 1 to 7, 2020
Love is in the air! Though Mercury is finishing up the last legs of its retrograde journey and nothing is going quite as planned, this week is mostly filled with pleasant, and even excessive, energy. On the 3rd, Venus squares off with Jupiter—an excellent aspect for going big or going home with all of our heart’s desires. Just be careful not to overspend or over-expend on this day. On the 4th, Venus moves into her home sign of Taurus and all is right and comfortable with the world. Spring is almost here!
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
As your birthday celebrations continue this week, you get a lovely surprise gift from a friend on the 3rd. Though you tend to shy away from too much attention, let your BFF take you to the spa for some personal attention. And while you’re at it, let your former colleague take you to that fancy boozy lunch and try not to blush when the waitstaff sings as your panna cotta arrives! On the 4th, you receive a sweet note from an old friend. Allow yourself to feel loved.
An exhausting workweek climaxes on the 3rd when you have to stay late to help a coworker or intern finish a project under your mentorship. Even if you’re exhausted and feel like a grouch, know that your guidance is deeply appreciated. No one leads the project (or the party) quite like you. Take a break on the 4th with a big bowl of ramen or cheesy slice of pizza during your lunch hour. Treat the whole team while you’re at it. There’s more abundance when you share.
Spending some time in isolation over the past month has been lonely, but it’s led to a much needed spiritual breakthrough. If an existential crisis arrives on the 3rd, remain calm and try not to take your inner guru so seriously. There’s no time for worrying anyway, because on the 4th, Venus makes its annual entrance to your sign. Get a manicure (and a different polish color for a change!), book a Brazilian wax and take a bubble bath. By the weekend, you'll feel like yourself again.
Have you been neglecting your reading list? As Mercury retrograde continues this week, you are inspired to get back to the book-a-week challenge you gave yourself at the top of the year. You want to finish 52 books. Or 20. Or at least five? On the 4th, take yourself on a date to the library. If you’re feeling uninspired as far as subject matter, ask a friend for a recommendation. Or even better, join a book club. You don’t have to do it alone.
On the 3rd, you get wonderful news about a contract, so make sure you celebrate! You are so humble about your achievements, but this is the moment to brag! Invite the whole crew out for happy hour and let your acquaintance from marketing buy you a negroni. If you’re not too hungover the next day, a new era of appreciation for your colleagues begins on the 4th. Hanging out may become a weekly routine.
Between that student loan debt resurfacing and an unexpected Venmo charge for your BFF’s bachelorette party, this Mercury retrograde has been hitting your cash flow hard. Luckily on the 4th, the focus shifts from your money to your commitments. Someone who was once your guiding light (or at least emergency contact) really needs your help. You should drop everything to be there. As Venus enters your public-image sector on the same day, you are being called to lead with grace. Start setting your own example.
On the 4th, Mercury, still retrograde, reenters the part of your chart that rules your literal to-do list. Try to leave extra time in your schedule each day to account for snafus, like realizing you don’t have your wallet at the supermarket checkout, an expired passport or an extra-long wait time at your dentist. If you’re feeling frazzled, the simple act of making eye contact with someone else in the waiting room is all the commiseration you need. You’re not fighting this battle alone.
There’s romance in the air, Libra. And if you schedule a date on the 3rd, don’t be surprised when “Just one drink!” turns into a 48-hour marathon hang and an emotional hangover. You didn’t expect to go quite that deep! You’re pulled out of the love cocoon for a bit on the 4th when you have to handle a loan application or a stressful meeting with your accountant. Luckily for you, for the next month money easily flows in your direction.
On the 4th, as Mercury reenters Aquarius and your home sector, you get the urge to purge your closet, clean out your desk and reorganize the bookshelf. Later this month you are going to be spending even more time at home, so focus now on making yourself cozy. Invite over your BFF and go through your closet together. Invite over that guy you’re dating so he can help you build an IKEA shelf. This is your Marie Kondo moment, so why not make it romantic?
If Mercury retrograde has left you feeling melancholy for the past couple of weeks, look out for a glimmer of light (and excess!) on the 3rd. You’re in a great mood and you want to go on a shopping spree. But don’t click “buy” on that inflatable bounce house for your kids or that linen romper for yourself too soon. In fact, on the 4th, you may find the same thing for way less money at a store in the neighborhood. Skip the online purchases and keep it local.
This week is all about owning your pleasures and living in confidence. On the 3rd, you receive compliment after compliment on your complexion. It seems that the skincare routine you’ve been perfecting since December is finally getting noticed, making it worth all those extra hours of exfoliation. On the 4th, you are feeling indulgent, so gather your friends for dinner at your favorite restaurant or a Love Is Blind binge watch. It’s a night to relax and find the humor in everything. Laughter really is the best medicine.
As Venus glides into your home sector on the 4th, you decide to finally take the plunge and buy that weighted blanket you’ve been eyeing for months. But instead of buying it in a dull gray color, go for chartreuse or emerald. Over the next month you’ll be more tuned in to the right statement pieces for your house, so start gathering those vibes now. Throughout the end of the week, you find that tough emails are written best from your couch. Try to work from home.
