This week, we will experience two shifts: The Sun moving from Aquarius to Pisces (on Monday), and the wounded healer asteroid, known as Chiron, moving from the sign of Pisces and into Aries.
It means the focal point in self-improvement will now entail evaluating who we truly are, and who and what we truly identify as.
The Full Moon will also be in Virgo on Tuesday, causing many harmonious aspects to come into play. Luckily, this is a calm and mellow full moon, which means we can also find ourselves feeling inspired.
Foreshadowing into March, Mercury Retrograde begins the shadow period (aka pre-retrograde period) this week. So some of us may begin to experience communication, travel or electronic devices going a bit wacky as a result. And, contrary to popular belief, Mercury Retrograde is actually quite beneficial for us to reflect on our recent past.
Read on for what else the week has in store, courtesy of professional astrologer Allie Schultz of Reality Check Astrology.
Aries: March 20–April 20
Aries, this week you may face a tempting sense to impulsively provide a surprise for a special someone—but wait that out before acting on it. Despite the good intentions behind the fleeting ideas, take the time to truly think it through. Shift that desire to act quickly towards problem-solving on a personal level.
Taurus: April 20–May 21
Practical ideas surrounding the work force could pop up from seemingly nowhere but roll with it. Colleagues are going to be impressed and pleased by what you bring to the table. A potential foreshadowing to career advancement? We'll see!
Gemini: May 21–June 21
Gemini, your overall concentration this week will be immersed in family matters. No worries, all is calm on the home front; It actually just involves spending more time at home, being cozy. You might possibly end up checking out some sentimental photo albums of how cute you were as a baby. Aww!
Cancer: June 21–July 22
You may feel undeserving of praise or recognition for efforts you've put forward, Cancer. But, the truth of the matter is that everybody else feels the complete opposite: You are worth it! Cast that self-doubt aside and accept the goodness that you've earned with grace.
Leo: July 22–August 23
Leo, the ability to really focus on things hasn't come easily recently. There's no need to panic about deadlines, nor beat yourself up about a perception of lacking productivity. Worrying isn't going to help this situation—you will get it all completed, eventually. You're being guided to gently re-evaluate the philosophy of what truth is to you; entirely at your own pace. A slow-down can be a gift, depending on how you look at it.
Virgo: August 23–September 23
Are you feeling a sense of stagnancy lately, Virgo? What is blocking you currently could very well be an indication of an intentional or even unintentional social cue that just doesn't sit right. With the full moon gracing your sign, you're given the powers to overcome what is holding you back.
Libra: September 23–October 23
Libra, you may find yourself gaining momentum, a great improvement from previously feeling prolonged fatigue. This is a great week for you to engage in acts of service for others, whether that be; consider maybe volunteer work or even speaking out for social justice. Don't push yourself too hard, however. Listen to your body when it gives you messages to rest.
Scorpio: October 23–November 22
In your love life this week you may experience sparks being ignited. Passionate and energetic Mars has recently shifted into your house of romance, bringing much excitement into your life. Let your guard down a little more at this time, and enjoy some fun.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
It's best not to drain yourself through over thinking, Sagittarius. Jupiter, your ruling planet (and currently in your sign) is in a bit of a bind involving Mercury and Neptune. This indicates that it could be pretty easy to make a mountain out of a molehill. Things aren't always what they initially appear to be.
Capricorn: December 21–January 20
Capricorn, good news is on its way this week! You may even get the hunch ahead of time. Either way, with the help of the Full Moon's fellow-earth sign energy, you are bound to be in an optimistic mindset these days.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
Our wounded healer Chiron kicks off the week by leaving Pisces and entering Aries, now hanging out in your communication house. You are going to have to face a tough discussion with loved ones this week, though. You may find yourself dealing with some tough emotions during the process, but luckily you are blessed with loved ones who are rooting for you.
Pisces: February 18–March 20
Your friends might refer to you as their beloved "mom friend" this week, regardless of your gender or sex. Your natural ability to nurture, extend compassion, and a lend genuine, listening ear can fuel you to take initiative and "mother" those you care about most. They’ll count their lucky stars to have a friend like you!
