Your Weekly Horoscopes: March 15 to 21, 2020
Happy Spring Equinox! Aries season (and the astrological new year!) arrives on the 19th as we reset the cosmic clock and make our resolutions. We’re feeling energized and ready to move ahead with even our loftiest goals. Then on the 21st, comes a big change: Saturn—planet of limits and boundaries––moves into Aquarius. Though the ringed planet will dip back into Capricorn for one final lap from July through December, what happens this spring gives us a preview of the structural changes that are on the horizon, for us individually and as a collective. Saturn in Aquarius (2020 to 2023) will be about technological innovation, community building and advocating for our beliefs. For now, let’s get organized!
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
It’s finally your time, Aries! As the sun enters your sign on the 19th, you are propelled out of the meditative state of the past month and back into your hustle. Though tensions at work are coming to a head, try to leave the stress at the office and prioritize self-care. Starting on the 21st, you quite suddenly are asked to take on a lot of responsibility in your friend group. Remember, if you always plan the bachelorette party, you can always get your first choice Airbnb.
Your mantra this week: Choose wisely.
Major renovations begin on your career and work life as Saturn shifts into Aquarius on the 21st. Whether you’re leveling up, switching things around or simply taking on more responsibility, it’s all happening now. With the sun in Aries and your unconscious sector, it becomes clear that phase one of the overhaul is all about what needs to be done behind the scenes. When’s the last time you got eight full hours of shut-eye? There are benefits to prioritizing rest.
Your mantra this week: Zzzz.
Communicative Mercury dips back into Pisces on the 16th and you finally give the presentation or schedule the meeting with your boss that got pushed back over and over again during the retrograde. Celebrate this moment with your coworkers. With Aries season kicking off on the 19th, you are more focused than usual on your social networks, so start prioritizing those work outings and community events. A conversation this week might completely change your life.
Your mantra this week: Talk that talk.
Whether your band is playing a show for the first time since LCD Soundsystem’s first farewell tour or you’re heading to the first day at your dream job, on the 19th it’s time for you to own the spotlight. As Saturn moves into Aquarius on the 21st and the tension in your interpersonal relationships finally begins to fade, you instead become preoccupied with money and loans. Over the next few months, you’ll likely be able to improve your credit score. Commit to that.
Your mantra this week: Own your power.
It’s time to get serious about your commitments, Leo. This week you are feeling confident about your future plans and impressed with your own ability to check everything off your to-do list. In fact, on the 20th, you handle a major problem and barely break a sweat. Go you! But as Saturn enters Aquarius on the 21st, some of the truly heavy decisions you have to make start weighing you down. Remember that whatever isn’t a “Hell yes!” is definitely a “Hell no!”
Your mantra this week: Just say no.
Everything that comes out of your mouth this week is poetry as Mercury reenters Pisces on the 16th. Why send a simple text to your lover when you can write a sonnet in iambic pentameter? Enjoy your dreamy dates and introspective discussions while they last, because as Saturn enters Aquarius on the 21st, you become painfully aware of all the errands and chores you’ve been ignoring. For the next few months, your task is to restructure for your daily routine. Start simple.
Your mantra this week: Make a list.
For quite literally years now, you’ve been so focused on getting ahead in your career and settling into your home that there has been no time for dating or romance or pleasure at all. That all changes this week. Whether you’re super single or definitely taken, you start feeling like yourself again in the company of others. On the 21st, while on a magical date with your boo—or your BFF—you’re reminded how good it feels to prioritize fun. Keep it going.
Your mantra this week: HAVE FUN!
Maybe you need to call your sister and apologize for something that happened last Christmas. Maybe you need to clean out your junk drawer for the first time since Obama’s first term. No matter what, there’s something you can no longer put off at home. With the sun moving into Aries on the 19th and lighting up your daily-grind sector, you have more patience than usual for annoying tasks. Take the first step this week so you don’t fall even further behind.
Your mantra this week: Embrace spring-cleaning.
You’ve been stressed about being able to afford something that’s been super important to you for months (or let’s face it, years), and on the 20th, the problem miraculously solves itself. Whether you’re finally making your side hustle profitable or just calmly making peace with a debt, don’t underestimate the power of this relief. As Saturn shifts into Aquarius on the 21st, you are tasked with evaluating and restructuring your daily schedule. How can you do less and enjoy more?
Your mantra this week: Let go.
With the sun moving into Aries on the 19th, there’s nowhere you feel more confident than posted up on your couch, pouring wine for your friends. So invite them over, buy some natural wine and make it happen! On the 21st, Saturn finally leaves your sign for the first time in years. But don’t think there aren’t more lessons on the horizon. The next few months are all about upgrading all your stuff and perfecting your cash flow. Simple, right? No one handles a shopping spree on a budget quite like you. Take the challenge.
Your mantra this week: Stick to the budget.
As the sun moves into Aries on the 19th, you’re the belle of the neighborhood: bonding with the volunteers at the compost drop-off and flirting extra hard with the cute barista. Enjoy this feeling while it lasts, because on the 21st your ruling planet Saturn shifts into your sign and you are tasked with taking yourself and your image a lot more seriously. The next few months may leave you with a few more gray hairs, but the wisdom is certainly worth it.
Your mantra this week: Take it serious.
What do you do when no one else is watching? You’re so compassionate and empathetic, and you easily lose yourself in everyone else’s problems. But with Saturn entering your unconscious sector on the 21st, you are tasked with finding better structures for the ways in which you meditate and reflect. Take some time away from everyone else’s emotions so you can learn more about yourself. With Mercury in your sign again, self-expression comes easily. Share your feelings and take lots of notes.
Your mantra this week: Meditate.
