The Sun is almost in Aries, which means the Spring Equinox (Astrological New Year) is near! The fast-approaching new chapter reminds us to finish ongoing projects and to conclude what might have been left hanging.
Mercury has also just entered Aries, and our communications remain intense and impassioned. You’re equipped with the capability to fervently chase after what you want, but on the downside, you might be too frustrated to deal with the challenges along the way.
To learn what the planets hold for your sign today, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Mercury has just entered into your first house, dear Aries, which makes you feel a heightened sense of bravery to speak up and get what you want. This energy makes you feel an urge to be direct with your desires, perhaps to let loose of long held-back feelings and finally tell how you feel to a romantic interest, or if you’re in a committed relationship, to have a conversation with your partner about the hard truths. A word of warning, however: with the delusive Neptune in your house of endings, your judgment might be too clouded to tell whether to end things or keep going. Better wait for the fog to clear up before making final choices.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Be careful with your words today, Taurus—with Mercury in your house of endings, relationships are in danger of getting ended if you let yourself get sharp-tongued. The hot-headed Mars is in your 2nd house of money, so it is best to avoid talking about finances in your relationships today as it might be a sensitive topic. With Venus in your 1st house of the self, it would be beneficial for you to take a break for yourself to let your head cool down. Don’t make decisions while angry, because you might only end up regretting them.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Love is yours if you want it, Gemini. With Mars in your 1st house of the self, you’re given the traits of the planet itself, which means that today, you’re incredibly driven to get what you want, and perhaps even more. With Mercury in your 11th house of friendships and social groups, getting out there to socialize with other people might be a good idea if you’re looking for love. It’s not true that you’ll only find love if you look for it. Mercury’s placement right now tells you otherwise. On the other hand, if you’re committed, don’t hold yourself back from telling the world about your partner. Your support system outside of your partner is one of the pillars of a good relationship.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, your romantic energy is overflowing today, with Pluto in your house of romance. Sparks are flying as you go out there and flirt with your friends, flirt with strangers, or with your significant other if you’re committed. Don’t worry about making love as much of a priority as work and money, as these parts of your life look just as good today with the planet of passion, Mars, in your 2nd house of money and Mercury in your 10th house of career. These two placements show that you’re capable and driven of earning money and forwarding your career, even while you’re in the pursuit of romance.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re known to be protective of your pride—and this truth is magnified today with the passionate and egoistic Mars in your 1st house of the self. Don’t take your partner’s valid criticisms as personal attacks. Instead, let Mercury in your 9th house of wisdom guide you to listen. What do they think you could do better? Rather than antagonizing them, let their points lead you toward self-betterment. After all, improving ourselves will always lead to the improvement of our relationships.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Be careful with your words today, Virgo. The destructive Pluto is thrusting you with the power to destroy as it dances in your 3rd house of communication. Mars in your 12th house of endings shows just how much you want to end a romantic affair that causes you so much frustration right now, but beware: Neptune in your 7th house of relationships is currently clouding your judgment about this relationship. Don’t let your anger lead you to making decisions you’ll regret later on. Better wait for the feeling to subside, for when you’re a little calmer, before you decide where the relationship will ultimately go.
Libra (September 23 – October 22
Libra, your partner is your priority today with Mercury in your zone of relationships. You consider them before you make decisions, you ask them for their opinion when you’re having trouble deciding, and you talk to them when there are issues in the relationship, because you acknowledge their part in your partnership instead of trying to take the helm all on your own. This energy manifests in the bedroom as well, with Venus in your 8th house of sex. You feel a desire to be of service to them, to give your partner their greatest needs and deepest desires, which rewards you both with waves of pleasure.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, you’re blessed with overwhelming happiness in your romantic relationship today, with Venus in your 7th house of relationships. However, with the illusory Neptune in the same house, you’re plagued with questions about the relationship. You ask yourself if you even deserve this. You wonder when the happiness will end and your partner finally shows their hidden dark side that eventually hurts you. But not to worry: the ever-so-passionate Mars in your 8th house shows you that you’re capable of creating intimate relationships, so long as you work for it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
“How do I love myself?” is your question for today, Sagittarius. Venus is in your 6th house of health, and that includes mental health. With Neptune in the same house, you’re not really sure how to do this, but you’re determined to do so. It is a good time to take care of yourself and be mindful of your mental health by journalling or meditating. Pluto in your 2nd house of finances shows that you have the resources to get the help that you need, so don’t be ashamed to seek help when you need it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You don’t like being controlled by your emotions, Capricorn, and the moon dipping in your 3rd house of thinking makes you even more mindful of your emotions. However, with Venus twirling in her mystical dress in your 5th house of romance, your romantic feelings for that special someone is magnified. Be careful not to intellectualize these feelings too much in your pursuit to understand them, Capricorn. Feelings ought to be felt, not analyzed, which means that you will only understand them when you let yourself feel.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
It’s going down in flames today, dear Aquarius, with Pluto in your house of endings. Mars in your zone of romance shows you that this is a very passionate love affair, and this intense fire cannot be put out without you getting burned. Don’t worry, though, it’s not all bad, because Venus holds your hand and gently leads you back home, and after such an intense love affair, she reminds you of the stability and security of coming home.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your heart is bursting with emotion as the moon dances in your very own first house. Venus and Uranus are occupying the same space in your head as they both stay in your 3rd house of the mind, which means that you might have feelings for someone and you’re not sure what to make of them.Try not to get your family too involved—with Mars in your family zone, you might be too emotional and impassioned to deal with them right now. It’s best to deal with matters of the heart on your own, at least for now.
