The planet of love, romance, and what we value most has several interesting change-ups in store this week. You'll need to stay flexible as you may need to process a whole new point of view. And thanks to Mercury in Taurus, it may be hard to let go.
On Tuesday, Venus starts out with a square (an aspect of challenge and a need to refine or restructure) to Saturn, which is in retrograde, bringing up old feelings of uncertainty and questions about past relationships. We get a good look back at any failed (or currently failing) partnerships and how we can adjust our sights to move past these blocks.
When Venus meets up with Pluto on Thursday, we can find the solutions we're looking for, but only after all the cards are laid out on the table. This could be a huge turning point for anyone who is struggling with past or present relationship problems.
By Sunday, the Sun moves into a harmonious trine with rigid Saturn, helping us settle into this new way of thinking—just in time for a Mother's Day celebration.
Here’s what the week ahead has in store for you, courtesy of expert astrologer Suzie Kerr Wright.
Aries: March 20–April 20
A romance will be rekindled and you will feel ready to surrender to a new way of showing up in a relationship. Your need to be in charge is not a priority. Let go, and see where life can take you. Try this letting go thing at work too; You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Taurus: April 20–May 21
You're struggling with your own concept of what a relationship should look like and realizing you've had a specific mindset that could be preventing you from jumping into something really special. If you have serious FOMO, it's time to face the reality of why.
Gemini: May 21–June 21
You may feel a disconnect from friends this week. Make an effort to reach out to those who have shown loyalty and support. Old BFFs may want to keep talking about your past, but it's up to you to show them the amazing person you've become.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
You'll be adjusting your priorities as responsibilities to your loved ones conflict with work obligations. This is a big week for you as far as recognizing that it's not that you have to do all this stuff, it's that you get to do it all. It's a shift in your perspective.
Leo: July 22–August 23
Staying in the moment allows you to navigate this week's challenges to your daily routines. Your passion is ignited—and a little bit goes a long way. Make sure you're not sending mixed signals to your potential partner or significant other. Are you in or are you out? Think hard, because they could be more dependent on you than you realize.
Virgo: August 23–September 23
The need to break free may have your partner questioning your commitment. Speak your truth, but make sure you add some sweetness. Pay attention to how others may receive your message. You may only need a little breathing room, but they could hear it as “you're done.” Attached Virgos may be saving up for a trip with your partner. Find ways to earn extra to make this a real dream vacation.
Libra: September 23–October 23
You'll want to fix up your digs to accommodate your super-special love. You may think of moving in together, or perhaps even bigger: a marriage and a new home. This energy pushes you to think about where to put down roots for the long term and with whom.
Scorpio: October 23–November 22
Make time for super romantic stuff like a lavish dinner and intimate evenings, as your to-do list is quite full and you might forget your lovely partner is just waiting for some private time with you. Don't cut yourself off emotionally from others.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
Someone quick witted has caught your eye, and in your desire to impress them, you may find yourself staying out too late, leaving you struggling at work. It's lovely to have this connection. You'll feel as if your partner or new love understands you better than anyone ever has, and it will be hard to set limits.
Capricorn: December 21–January 20
Clarity and focus are required as you are creating a new direction in your life. Until now, you may have felt like you were skating along, even though you've always worked hard. Now you're getting more specific about what and who you’d like to have in your life. After the events of this week you'll understand exactly what you need to do.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
Aquarians are heading into a week where you'll feel a bit more hedonistic, need a rest or be symbolically sticking your head in the sand. After the excitement of last week, there's kind of a relief to throwing your hands up and letting things work out knowing you've done what you need to set things in motion. It's up to the universe now so take a bit of a rest from trying to control the world. It will also allow you to see your partner in a different way, so enjoy!
Pisces: February 18–March 20
As you go through this week you'll feel pulled in many directions. It's nice to be needed, but, tread carefully; Pisces tend to try to please everyone! Jealousy may come into the picture so you'll have to do a balancing act with friends and your partner. This is actually a nice problem to have, though, if you think about it. You have a lot of love and compassion to give and others need that now. Just remember to recharge often.
