This week will be astrologically intense. With all that’s happening in the world, it’s important that we all take stock of the wonderful things and people in our lives. No matter how heated situations get, try not to lose hope. Also, have patience. Don’t give up on the power of community. We will all get through these challenging times together. 

We kick off this week with Ostara, the Spring Equinox, the astrological New Year, and the start of Aries Season on the 19th. Before the Pisces Sun switches signs and moves into Aries, it connects with Saturn, who’s in Capricorn, creating structure and wisdom in our lives. The same day, Uranus, who’s in Taurus, softly aspects the Nodes of Destiny, bringing us hope and inspiration. Mars and Jupiter link up in Capricorn on the 20th, pushing us towards taking action in expressing our feelings. Mercury, who’s in dreamy Pisces, aspects the Nodes of Destiny on the 21st, bringing pertinent information our way. Saturn enters Aquarius on the 21st, teaching us new lessons around structure, discipline, and karma. The following day, Mercury and Uranus align, followed by a gentle connection with Venus, who’s in Taurus, and Neptune, who’s in Pisces. Watch out for miscommunications and mixed emotions on the 22nd, as we may want to believe in those who will prove to be unworthy of our sentiments on the 23rd. The Aries Sun and the Nodes of Destiny square off on the 23rd, which can bring saltiness and ego hits our way. Mars and Pluto form a conjunction on the 23rd, which will add a passionate vibe and lust of power to our overall energy. This transit happens every two years and it can bring major arguments to a head. The week ends with the Aries New Moon on the 24th, which will prove to be a much needed reset to the overall energy of the week. 


March 21 - April 19

You will be forced to make an intense emotional decision, which will alter the fate of your life. Instead of rushing through the choices, take time to decompress and figure out your next move. Strategically planning will help you find the best solutions to your issues. Take a warm Himalayan salt bath to center yourself and find options to your personal quandary. Thinking matters through, while detoxing your mind, body, and spirit, will prove beneficial. 


April 20 - May 20

Taking time away from the limelight isn’t your style, but you’re adjusting to the new norm. Use this time to relax and unwind, rather than stress about problems that are mounting. Odds are, the issues that you think are a problem will work themselves out. Things have a way of unfolding in a way that will bring you a positive outcome. As long as you think rationally and avoid negative emotions, you will be golden. 


May 21 - June 20

More than ever, relationships are a source of inspiration. Reach out to your loved ones for support this week or be sure to start a group text with your friends to keep in touch. These simple steps won’t make you feel as if you’re not in total isolation. A phone or Skype call and daily text messages will make you feel close to those you care about. All of these steps will keep you connected, 


June 21 - July 22

Work may be at a standstill, making this week an ideal time to strategize your next big professional move. If you’re thinking about making a career change, use this week to your advantage and plot out the next steps. You don’t have to rush into making a professional decision. You can take your time in planning the path that is ideal for you. Hopefully, you’ll choose the road that embraces your philosophies, interests, and morals. 


July 23 - August 22

It’s never too late to change your personal beliefs. While you may want to hold onto your older ideals, you are shedding the past faster than the speed of light making it hard for you to understand your direction clearly. Your brain may be dizzying now, but you’ll be able to find the light at the end of the tunnel if you find the courage to let it all go and move towards personal evolution. 


August 23 - September 22

Your intuition is heightened this week — which is both a good and bad thing. Being energetically sensitive has its price and toll on the mind. You may feel the pressures and anxieties of the world on your shoulders, which will add stress and tension to your vibe. Try disconnecting from the overall energy by meditating and centering your inner thoughts. Breathing exercises are important to your mental health. Also, being present and in the moment. 


September 23 - October 22

Relationships may be more complex than ever this week, as you are seeking  boundaries within all of your partnerships. Giving your all to others brings you pleasure, but it is also taking a lot of energy away from you focusing on your issues. Setting limits will be challenging, as well as limiting the time spent dealing with problems that surround you. With all this constant frenetic cosmic and global energy, you have to relax too. 


October 23 - November 21

Karmic relationships are unfolding this week, allowing you to rethink the future of your partnerships. Taking time to understand your role in any situation (good or bad) will bring personal enlightenment to you. It will help you glow up and take responsibility for past issues. You’ll feel reborn by the end of the week, having made amends with older sentiments — with others and within yourself. This will allow you to understand yourself better. 


November 22 - December 21

Embracing your creative side will excite your mind this week. However, you may experience blockages that are holding you back from achieving your goals. Placing a clear quartz crystal on your desk will induce and help you channel your artistry. Your visions will be fluidly pouring out you — as well as your insights and inventiveness. Embrace your imagination this week and visualize your skills. This activity will boost your spirit and mind to higher levels.


December 22 - January 19

You’re in the mood to reach out to former friends and past lovers to reconnect. Before you send the text or email, make sure that you really want to engage with these people again. At first, it may seem like an amazing (yet, impulsive) idea, but it may prove to be more stressful than it’s worth. Take a moment to think before you communicate with people from the past. Be sure it’s the right decision. 


January 20 - February 18

Giving back to others is essential at this time and you’ll be the first to want to help those less fortunate than you. Starting a community program in which you give assistance, aid, medical supplies, and food to your neighbors in need is important. Not only will this activity enable you to volunteer and embrace your humanitarian spirit, but it will make you happy knowing you did your part in assisting others who need it. 


February 19 - March 20

Your time and heart are extremely valuable. This week, you are giving both to those who need you. All of this can manifest in having conversations with your friends, forming a neighborhood charity, or taking care of your loved ones. Regardless which endeavor you choose to take on, you’ll be giving a lot of your energy to others which is why you’ll need to decompress a few times throughout the week to focus on yourself.
