We have officially entered Spring, the Full Moon has passed, and Mercury retrograde is ending. All of these things combined send a wonderful message:
If this has been a particularly emotional and confusing month, you are not alone. But this week, at least some clarity and perspective will be restored with Mercury going direct on the 28th. There’s always a bit of a hangover, so tread lightly, but you’re almost out of the woods (and very much finally into spring).
This is the time to put in your best efforts in what you believe, and very soon you will reap rich rewards. You have been playing with a few ideas recently. You now need to execute them and this will require all your attention. Though it is going to be a busy time, the rewards will come soon and will exceed your expectations.
Pay attention to your dreams, Aries, because they may help you release any anxiety you’ve been holding onto this week. You might be too busy for deep introspection during waking hours, but let your unconscious mind bypass your type-A brain and show you whom to confront and whom to forgive. (It may be the same person…)
Venus brings a reprieve in the form of a weekend escape, out-of-town jaunt or a day spent catching up on sleep. Rather than feeling guilty over your lack of productiveness, use the opportunity to reestablish your equilibrium and prepare for busy times ahead. But for now, focus on relaxation and pampering.
Catch up with old friends this week, and put a few dates on the calendar. You have a handful of people in your phone whose text threads all end on some variation of “lunch soon??” and though neither of you are flakes, life somehow gets in the way. Mercury’s last sweep in retrograde will see you reconnect and finally answer those texts with a “let’s do tomorrow!” and three smiley emojiis—just as he intended.
Your planetary ruler, Venus, glows in your friendship zone on Wednesday. Arrange to spend some quality time with your squad. This week, it’s all about the sisterhood supporting each other in meaningful ways. Either you will offer your bestie a shoulder to cry on or it might be you that calls upon a trusted friend for guidance.
Lawyer? Doctor? Etsy floral crown maker? You may be re-considering everything about your career, including whether or not you really want one at all. But that’s healthy—your active, fluttering mind needs to wander before you really settle down into a role. Even if you end up deciding to stay right where you are. (You are a great lawyer!)
Hallelujah! Mercury halts its retrograde, flowing forward through the heavens once again on Friday. Over the past two weeks, Mercury was reversing through your career zone, causing a few hiccups and delays. You may have been offered an exciting opportunity, only to have it stalemate. The good news is that from week’s end, things will become unstuck and move in the right direction.
If all you want to do is sit home, listen to podcasts and watch documentaries, then the people in your life are just going to have to get used to it (at least for this week). Let yourself be obsessed with learning everything about a subject, even if it’s as niche as how male bees commit sexual suicide (a real thing!). This is your week to nerd out, Cancer.
La Luna inspires romance on Thursday, when it highlights your relationship sphere. You may be tempted to contact a past lover, as you reminisce over fond memories. Couples share a special connection through a mutual appreciation of something or someone. Capture the moment with a photograph or by journaling in your diary.
If your partner is struggling with a brutal job hunt or a tough boss, use this week to really be there for them. If you’re often locked in a battle of indecision for dinner, take the burden off them and pick something. Ditto for Netflix. In fact, you might start to really like calling all the shots in this relationship…
Money is spotlighted when Venus enters your financial sphere on Wednesday. There is danger in excessive spending or being frivolous with your cash this week. However, you also have a golden opportunity to make a wise investment or gain funding for an important venture. Make a conscious choice about how you wish to proceed. Being cautious now will line your pocket in the long term.
If you are in a relationship, your partner might need a bit of a reminder how much they mean to you. It’s easy to get distracted with life, and all the stresses that come with it, but remember, your partner is there to help you through it all. Don’t ignore them when things get tough. If you’re single, then this week is a reminder to allow others to help you when you need it most.
La Luna graces your home sector on Monday, drawing your attention to an important family matter. If you have children, you may need to give some more TLC to your little ones this week. Other Virgos experience a surge of intense feeling. No, you’re not going crazy. Consider this an emotional detox before Mercury ends its retrograde on Friday.
The mind is strong but the flesh is weak, and perhaps your exhaustion levels are outpacing your coffee habit. Ditch the java (if possible), and lean into creative ways to feel better. That could be hitting snooze a few extra times, driving out of your way to the good bagel place or getting a loved one to rub some capsaicin on that achy back.
Your boss, a person in authority or a coworker is willing to lend you a helping hand. Lucky Jupiter connects with the Moon’s Node on Monday, blessing you with valuable guidance and assistance. Accept what is offered graciously. There may be a small catch however, so be prepared to repay the favour when the time comes.
A comedy of errors in the romance department? You said you wanted to meet at 10 p.m., but he thought you meant 10 a.m. the next day, and your text didn’t go through, and his phone died anyway, and also you meant Mane Street not Main Street… If it weren’t so frustrating, it’d be hilarious, so don’t forget to laugh.
Expect an overdue conversation to flow smoothly when Mercury shifts gears and quits its retrograde on Friday. If you need to raise a sensitive topic with your partner or child wait until then, as you’ll be more likely to get your point across and end up winning the argument. At best, you will both emerge triumphant, having found a mutually beneficial compromise.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell when you’re burned out, Sagittarius. But if you’ve been nodding off because you can’t focus, it’s time to delete some obligations off your calendar. Treat yourself to the ultimate luxury of looking forward to…nothing.
If you’ve fallen out with your mother, sister or best friend, this week presents you with an opportunity to heal the rift. Venus loves to revel in the sisterhood and wants nothing more than to reconnect you with an important female in your life. Try to assess the situation from a loving vantage point and ditch the need to be right.
Now is a really good time to tell the people in your life that you love them. You’ve never been the mushy type, Capricorn, but as Mercury retrograde wraps up, you’ve got a perfect opportunity to simply express how you feel to the people who probably already know but deserve a round of applause anyway.
La Luna enters your sign on Thursday, regurgitating an issue from your past or bringing a childhood friend into focus. Find the time to see someone special, otherwise you may lose the opportunity, even if you had every intention of catching up. Sharing a precious memory will help you to discover a sense of belonging that brings joy and healing.
Your mind keeps drifting back to money and financial issues, which can provoke anxiety. Try to reflect on what eats up the most resources and whether it does the most good in your life. If you get proactive about spending according to your values, you’ll immediately breathe a lot more easily. Which is basically priceless.
Revolutionary Uranus is shaking up your zone of home and family, helping to push you out of your comfort zone by attending to an important task. Aquarians living in their parent’s house may consider spreading their wings and finding a nest of their own. Others can confidently tackle an overdue repair or renovation around the house by week’s end.
Your ongoing challenge as a Pisces is to hold onto yourself despite being a sponge for other people’s moods. This week, be empathetic and independent. Make your favorite Moroccan chickpea quinoa salad and break out the fine flatware. Stay in to rewatch your beloved ’90s series on Hulu. Giggle at your own jokes. Save all the best stuff for you.
Your creative genius is on fire when Neptune, your planetary ruler, kisses Mercury on Monday. Due to Mercury’s retrograde, now is not the time to put your brilliant ideas out for judgement. Instead, keep your thoughts and dreams close to your chest. Mercury will be direct by week’s end, so if you feel ready, you have the green light to proceed then.
