Your Weekly Horoscopes: March 6 to 12, 2022

After many weeks of tense negotiations, Venus and Mars both enter Aquarius on the 6th where they make their final conjunction before parting ways for good. This meeting in fixed air sign Aquarius has both planets concerned with the greater social order, pushing us all to solve our problems through conversation and commitment to change. It’s a great time for an extra therapy session, figuring out learning about non-violent communication or getting a tarot reading to clarify what’s happening.

Then on the 9th, Mercury glides into Pisces where the communication planet drops the cool intellectual act it was keeping up for appearances and melts into mystical poetry instead. Think: The unique charm of Mercury in Pisces native, Laura Dern for inspiration.

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

12 aries

Take a moment and think all the way back to December 2020. Think of the friendships that were blossoming, the coworker bonds that were solidifying and the community initiatives that were taking off. Though it feels like you’ve drifted away from some of those connections over the last year, the door was never closed. This week allows you to step back into spaces you’ve missed and to get excited about socializing again. Growth isn’t linear.

This week’s mantra: “I can’t lose what I’ve already built.”

1 taurus

Yes, you’re very stubborn and yes, you can barely deal with change but still, there’s no one else who has your ability to lead through these unprecedented times. A career or leadership opportunity that initially presented itself back in December 2020 comes back around this week, only this time, you have the confidence to negotiate a deal on your terms. Taking on a fresh responsibility is just like starting a new relationship. There needs to be romance and tension. You need to be properly swept off your feet.

This week’s mantra: “I want what wants me.”

2 gemini

Professional success is great and all, but what about being recognized for how you feel? Your ruling planet Mercury glides into dreamy Pisces on the 9th, opening up expansive, creative landscapes for you to explore. Under this influence, you become less of a journalist or a tech geek, and more of a songwriter or choreographer. Stream-of-conscious journaling, reading fiction for fun and allowing yourself to just sip and stare are important practices right now. Exercise your imagination!

This week’s mantra: “My biggest dreams are yet to be imagined.”

3 cancer

Back in December 2020, a loan, contract or partnership presented itself to you. You weren’t quite ready at the time to take a leap out of your steady job or comfortable city or predictable single life. But now things are different. It’s been a long process to get here, but this week, you’re ready to commit to what’s next for you and this opportunity. Though this is a welcome ending to a long period of weighing pros and cons, it’s also another exciting (and nerve-wracking) beginning.

This week’s mantra: “I’m ready to share responsibility.”

4 leo

This winter has tested you with constant routine shakeups. The coworkers have been infighting and your kids have been protesting against the babysitter for no reason beyond they just “feel like it”. It’s been exhausting for you to juggle schedules and mediate conflicts. There hasn’t been a moment of peace. This week, you get a taste of what it feels like to be fully supported. Let someone take all this nonsense off your plate and don’t worry about doing any favors in return.

This week’s mantra: “I’m retiring from nonsense.”

5 virgo

This week provides an opportunity to examine your daily schedule and get clear about your priorities, not just for you but for your relationships as well. With your ruling planet Mercury gliding into free-flowing Pisces on the 9th, you’re craving more connection but it’s important to stay firm in your boundaries. It’s OK if the decisions you make right now aren’t logical or practical. Focus on following what makes you feel inspired and allows more freedom in your day to day.

This week’s mantra: “More structure, less rules.”

6 libra

If you’ve wanted to reignite a romance with a favorite ex or a crush that got away, this is the week to start testing the waters of that union. What caused your initial rift wasn’t incompatibility but too much interference from others outside of the relationship. What if you focused on how good the sex is instead of what everyone else thinks about it? Finding more ease and gentleness in your daily routine allows you to soften up for love.

This week’s mantra: “My relationship is my business.”

7 scorpio

Back in December 2020, you felt like you had gotten to the root of something. After a year of unprecedented change, isolation and uncomfortable shifts, you got a glimpse of how you could rebuild your world from the ground up. This week, you feel inspired to get back to that place through a commitment to setting up your home in a way that makes you feel settled. The first step is accepting that no one else can tell you what it is that you want.

This week’s mantra: “I’m choosing this.”

8 sagittarius

This week is for delighting in the details of your living space, sending sweet notes to family or diving into research on your ancestry. Allow yourself plenty of time for journaling and daydreaming as your mind needs space to flow freely from thought to thought. It also might be more difficult for you to get intensely technical things accomplished so allow for extra time if you’re assembling new furniture or setting up a home office.

This week’s mantra: “Within structure, I find freedom.”


The hard work you’ve been putting into building up your wealth and security since way back in December 2020 pays off this week. A hefty expense comes out of nowhere on the 6th, but you handle it without breaking a sweat. This is what that emergency fund is for! On a sweeter note, you might also get to make a huge purchase that isn’t for your kids or your family or your home, but truly for yourself. Take the upgrade.

This week’s mantra: “I planned for this.”

10 aquarius

Though you usually like to stay out of conflicts that have nothing to do with you, an ongoing argument between family or colleagues is miraculously solved with some of your potent wisdom on the 6th. This week is all about coming back into your power and accepting your status as an elder or a mentor. There’s still work to be done to get you grounded so you can avoid running on adrenaline from crisis to crisis. Flow arrives when you accept that feeling settled is up to you.

This week’s mantra: “I’m growing into my power.”

11 pisces

It’s easy to lose yourself when you spend so much time listening to everyone else’s point of view. But what about what you think? What about what you have to say? Communication planet Mercury enters your sign on the 9th bringing more attention to your words, your thought process and your unique way of seeing the world. Not every problem can be solved with an instruction manual. Your community needs more of your finely tuned intuition.

This week’s mantra: “I trust my hunches.”
