This week follows the aftermath of the New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. On Monday the 7th, Venus (the planet of love) will enter the sign of Sagittarius in which we will feel more chatty, fun-loving, and much less likely to get jealous or possessive of our loved ones. By the weekend, we will be in the waxing phase of the moon, also known as the second quarter, which makes it the time of the month that is action-oriented and fast-paced—ideal to put your plans into action.
As you prepare for the week ahead, here’s what the stars have in store for you, courtesy of professional astrologer Allie Schultz of Reality Check Astrology.
Aries: March 20–April 20
Aries, you'll find the influence of your ruling planet Mars (having entered your sign when we rang in the New Year) adding the much-needed momentum needed to take a risk. Your main driving force has been an internal debate between wanting to explore new experiences versus staying put as a result of "fear of the unknown" and uncertainty. The shifting of the Moon phase through the weekend wants you to seriously consider it all!
Taurus: April 20–May 21
Taurus, it's an opportune week for you to reach out towards and show support for others. You may find people becoming drawn to you for advice and reassurance and, as a result, strengthening meaningful friendship connections. Just use discernment in enforcing boundaries when needed; Don't let anybody take advantage of your kind and caring nature.
Gemini: May 21–June 21
It may be extremely hard to exercise willpower lately, Gemini. With Venus and Jupiter sitting in your seventh house, over-indulgence can be occurring without even realizing it. Slowing down, practicing mindfulness, and doing some self-reflecting will be your best tools this week. Don't be so critical of yourself in the process.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
This may not be a very socially interactive week for you, Cancer. You'd probably rather hang out indoors and engage in healthy solitude and sentimental nostalgia. It is a good time to take advantage of sprucing up your home through organizing, re-arranging furniture, or even working on scrapbooking projects. Change up the fung shui.
Leo: July 22–August 23
It can be easy for you to feel like the world (or entire universe) is against you this week, dear Leo. Stress could test your mental and emotional thresholds, and it is important to inform you that this is a test of your inner strength and growth. You hold the power to look at whatever may be throwing you for a loop as "Why is this happening to me?" or "What is this trying to teach/show me?" Breathe.
Virgo: August 23–September 23
Virgo, this week you might want to seriously consider making some changes to your health-related routines. The potential to be drawn to exploring holistic approaches and changing eating habits through more natural and nourishing meals is likely to occur. Do your research before jumping on any kind of bandwagon to see what will personally work best for you. Feeling your best will help you put your best self forward.
Libra: September 23–October 23
This is going to be a considerably upbeat week for you, Libra. This is due to having appreciation for new beginnings and the clean slate of 2019. You may find yourself full of hope and optimism for your future. Take time this week to jot down any intentions or goals you hope to smash, and even keep the momentum of positivity going strong by writing a list of what you continue to hold gratitude for.
Scorpio: October 23–November 22
Scorpio, this week it will feel like you have an electrical current coursing through your body, needing a release. It's not advised to ignore or suppress this as built-up tension can be a very unpleasant result. This is all happening because you have the two most action-packed planets, Mars and Uranus, placed in your sixth house of health. This is an indication that picking up a physical hobby would be ideal for you: dancing, exercise, or sports.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
You are going to need to confront your overly laid-back stance on how you spend money this week, Sagittarius. Saturn is sitting in your house of worth, which can hinder you for the sake of learning from mistakes. Be sure to keep tabs on your bank balance, and really ask yourself before splurging if it's truly a necessity or can it wait for a special occasion?
Capricorn: December 21–January 20
It is crucial for you to accept time to relax and recharge this week, Capricorn. Most importantly for self-care reasons. It'll be an ideal time for you to embark on a mini adventure to clear your head from current stressors. You've earned this break, so take this time to enjoy yourself outside of work life.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
Aquarius, you could find yourself resisting kind gestures from others this week, whether you are aware of this or not. It is important to seek the cause of this, as planet Neptune along with Chiron are sitting in your house of worth (in all forms). This can lead to confusion and the misreading others intentions. Be easy with yourself at this time; this confusion will pass.
Pisces: February 18–March 20
Pisces, this week you could be facing a lesson about expectations and disappointment in your social circle. Remember to think before speaking during this time to avoid potential consequences in the shuffle. Instead, find a time for a meeting during which you lay your feelings and point of views out on the table in a civil yet honest matter until you reach a resolution.
