The temperatures will be warming up soon, and for many, so will your love life! This week shows both exciting opportunities and new beginnings, as well as time for reflection. Check out what the stars have in store for you with these weekly horoscopes, courtesy of astrologer Krystal Smith.
Aries (March 21st–April 19th)
The sun joined Mercury, Venus, and Uranus in your sign last week giving you a jump-start as we enter into Aries season! Venus remains retrograde until April 15th, so there are still lessons in love to be learned, but with all of this planetary energy in your fiery sign I know you're up for the challenge! Go deep and be honest with yourself—what have you truly been yearning for when it comes to your love life? Try to put away some time for yourself to write your love goals down because on March 27th you will have extra manifesting power when the moon joins the sun in Aries for the new moon.
Taurus (April 20th–May 20th)
Mars, the planet of motivation and sexual desire, entered your sign on March 9th, giving you an extra dose of ambition and charisma. Use this time to treat yourself while spending quality time with your partner. Make dinner together and splurge on that fancy bottle of wine or go get a couples massage. Venus is still in retrograde until April 15th, so these little romantic adventures will help lighten any trouble in paradise she is likely to bring along during this six-week cycle.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Saturn—the planet of hard work, discipline, and status—is opposite your sun, while Venus remains in retrograde until April 15th. You may be concerned about how your boss or partner is seeing you right now, but only temporarily. If the lessons are learned during major transits such as these, you will always come out the other end much stronger and more ambitious than ever!
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Your sign is ruled by the moon, which starts off in Pisces this week, allowing you to keep dreaming momentarily, but not for long! On March 27th, there is a New Moon in Aries. Whatever you have been dreaming about for the past few days can now manifest into reality if you're determined enough to do the work. Looking for love? Now is the time for single Cancers to mingle. Already taken? Use this New Moon energy to add some spontaneity into your partnership. Whatever your relationship status is, confidence is key while your ruler is in the hot sign of Aries.
Leo (June 21–July 22)
The go-getter planet, Mars, has entered your 10th house of status and career. What a lovely time for your zodiac sign! Planning a wedding or career change, or looking to get promoted? Time to get to work and take advantage of this motivating planet's energy, which will help you put your plans into action.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Venus remains retrograde and recently joined the sun, Mercury, and Uranus in your 8th house of intimacy and transformation. Although these transits can be intense, they can also bring much needed change in our relationships, especially in areas of communication and how we give and receive love. Pay special attention to your partner’s needs during this time, but don't forget your own (as your nurturing sign can often do). Also, don't skip the one-on-one time with the love in your life. Being together is more beneficial than ever.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Your planetary ruler, Venus, is still in retrograde in your opposite sign of Aries. Libra represents partnerships, while Aries represents the self. The lesson for you, my love, is to practice self care and independence! Now would be a great time to take a cooking class or start a project you've been wanting to complete — and do it solo! Time apart makes the heart grow fonder during this transit.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Your traditional ruler, Mars, is opposite your sun right now, which can make you feel slightly more irritable than usual. Mars is a masculine planet and when it is opposing your sun it can often create conflict with the opposite sex. Has your partner been getting on your last nerve? Consider getting out of the house and burning off some of that extra nervous energy with a new fitness routine such as kickboxing or Soul Cycle. The more challenging the better!
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Your 5th house of creativity and fun is jam-packed right now, adding a lot of playfulness to your relationship. Just remember, Venus remains in retrograde until April 15th, and is also transiting your 5th house. The challenge here is to learn how to play fair when it comes to affairs of the heart. If you've been playing too hard and neglecting the work in your relationship, make sure to turn the focus back onto your partner this week. Make them feel extra special by taking them on an adventure with you and don't be afraid to invite some mutual friends that you both love spending time with!
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Problems at home may arise this week as Venus retrograde transits your 4th house of home and family. Venus isn't the only planet transiting this house though…it's joined the sun, Mercury, and Uranus. Mercury is the planet of communication and Uranus is the rebellious planet forcing us to think outside the box. Have you and your partner been feeling stuck in a rut or has your routine been lacking some spontaneity? Now would be a great time to talk to them about mixing things up and taking an unorthodox approach to anything involving your home life. Home is also the bedroom (wink, wink) so don't be afraid to try something new in this area either!
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Be careful how you approach your partner this week, as Venus remains retrograde in your 3rd house of communication. Your sign's element is air, and like all air signs you can come across as somewhat aloof and detached at times. This week would be a great time to reconnect with your partner, and don't skimp on the cuddle time either! Actions speak louder than words, so if you catch yourself not having much to say, go ahead and show your feelings with affection instead.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Venus retrograde has moved out of your 1st house of self and into your 2nd house of money and security. Mercury is also in your 2nd house, giving you a boost in your communication style. Now you might think about discussing the future with your partner on any area related to security, finances, and monetary goals—but don't put any plans into action until Venus turns direct on April 15th.
