Get ready for an action-packed week. It begins with the sun finishing up its time in sensitive water sign Pisces, conjoining illusory Neptune on the 17th and getting us all wrapped up in a fantasy. Then Mercury in Aries conjoins the North Node just as it enters its retrograde shadow on the 18th. Watch out for people high on their own supply and making promises they can’t keep. Whatever conflicts/concerns/big feelings that are coming up now are going to come back later in the spring so make sure you’re taking notes (though their recurrence will probably be too loud to miss anyway).

The spring equinox is on the 19th. Welcome to Aries season and the astrological new year! One of the best things about following astrology is all the bonus holidays, and this one is great to refocus and initiate. Then on the 21st, Venus conjoins Saturn—a day that solidifies our dreamiest romantic or creative visions.

The whirlwind week ends with action planet Mars joining Venus in Pisces on the 22nd. (Side note: Happy birthday, Reese Witherspoon!) Some might call Mars in Pisces meek, but that fish can be a piranha. For the next several weeks, we’re going to be facing conflict with cutthroat compassion.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Welcome to your season, Aries! The spring equinox arrives on the 19th along with your annual month-long excuse to be even more extra than usual. But this year, strangely, you’re feeling reserved. Shy even. You’re craving not a big party but an escape into nature. You may also be feeling reflective about relationships. How have connections lost and found impacted you over the last year? What are your relationship goals as you begin another turn around the sun?

This week’s mantra: “Commune.”

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

While most everyone in your life is super energized by the turn to spring and the astrological new year, you’re feeling exhausted. Your efforts to bring the community together aren’t going unnoticed, and yet, you can’t quite shake the feeling that you’re being undermined. Try not to let the revelation of a hidden enemy on the 18th ruin your whole week. By the 21st, it will be clear who your real friends are.

This week’s mantra: “Split.”

Cheeky illustration of identical twins with long dark hair and a statement earrings back-to-back, smirking at each other.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Known as a jack of all trades, you’re used to quickly switching gears and having your hands in everything. But this week, and for the next several weeks, you’re going to be super focused on a few specific goals. Who knew you could get so much done when you blocked out all the other nonsense? This is also a great week to gather with friends, host a book club or finally organize that happy hour for your coworkers.

This week’s mantra: “Deadline.”

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Time to put yourself out there! Aries season is your most visible time of the year, and from the 19th, you’re not just thrust into the spotlight, you’re also considering a major move or switch up in your career. Maybe you’re going in a whole new direction or maybe you’re just finally being recognized for something you’ve always wanted to do. Trust in your power to lead and inspire.

This week’s mantra: “Success.”

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Be cautious around anything that seems too good to be true this week, Leo. Especially on the 17th as the sun meets up with illusory Neptune. Sure, this could be your lucky break, but when the fog clears, you might find yourself with more problems than solutions. Not everyone who claims to be a mentor or guide actually wants to help you. Some of them just want to take your money and run.

This week’s mantra: “Discernment.”

Cheeky illustration with a light blue background of a woman wearing a coral shirt coyly poking out from behind her hands.

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)

You’re always up to something, and this week, the ideas for business ventures and collaborations are coming in hot. Excitable conversations around the 18th might have you ready to put everything else on hold, but if you push too hard too soon, you’re going to burn out. Aries season begins on the 19th, welcoming you to the time of year when you’re most aware of both your and other people’s limits. Don’t stretch yourself thin.

This week’s mantra: “Passion.”

Libra (September 23 - October 21)

A barrage of requests from a friend or coworker to begin the week has you feeling like your head is under water. This is the finale to a few weeks of constant errands and thankless work. Once Aries season begins on the 19th, your focus shifts to the most important relationships in your life and how you can better ask for help and work as a team.

This week’s mantra: “Lift.”

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

Aries season is always one of the busiest times of year for you, and this one is especially hectic. Not only do you have a ton on your plate, you’re also getting offers for work or activities that could significantly shake up your schedule. Your ruling planet Mars moves into Pisces on the 22nd reminding you to save some time for dating, creativity and having fun.

This week’s mantra: “Constant.”

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Aries season is the most creative and romantic time of year for you. But this year isn’t like any other as you’re about to experience shakeups in your social life. Look out for opportunities to go on dates, connect with collaborators and get more involved in your community. This week also brings some hard conversations with a roommate, partner or family member. Dig deep and be honest.

This week’s mantra: “Honesty.”

A cheeky image of a woman of color with dark hair holding a pink goat by the horns. The background is pink and her shirt is darker pink.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

The beginning of the spring always feels like a reset for you. While everyone else is excited for more outdoor happy hours and weekend excursions, you’re happiest when spending time at home. The 21st is an auspicious day to have a few of your besties over for dinner and a movie. Keep it simple.

This week’s mantra: “Chill.”

Cheeky image of a Black woman with blue hair on a light blue background. She's holding blue water in her palms, which is bubbling up and taking shape as her hair.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aries season is always jam-packed for you, and this year, you’re busier than ever before with surprises being thrown into the mix left and right. The 21st is a great day to treat yourself before things get super-hectic. Invite a bestie out to your favorite restaurant and don’t hold back from ordering all your favorite things on the menu.

This week’s mantra: “Indulge.”

Cheeky illustration of a gender-fluid white person with short-cropped orange hair. They're wearing a light blue halter top as two bright pink koi fish circle their head.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

If you’ve been considering a big change to your appearance, the 21st is a great day to commit to a new hair style or beauty routine. You might even get lucky and get this service on a discount! As the sun enters Aries and your money sector on the 19th, your focus shifts to looking good and shopping high quality on a budget.

This week’s mantra: “Deal.”
