Move over, Cupid (or Eros, if you like the Greek gods better than the Roman ones), this is a week for passions to flare.
We start off real spicy, with Mars conjunct both Venus and Pluto. Get ready for some heat as Mars ignites a fire under the way we experience love, romance, art, and culture. This may sound fun, but it’s not all good. Placements like this can lead to flaring tempers, especially for people in positions of power.
Venus is sextile Neptune, another precarious pairing, as what you see is not always what you get. Adoration and affection may be providing cover for a hidden truth that’s not so pretty.
As passions wax and wane, to keep a clear head, just remember: things aren’t always what they seem.
March 21 – April 19
This week, questions are in store for you regarding your philosophy of love, romance, and personal resources. How can you learn to be better in these areas?
April 20 – May 20
Art, love, and comfort are something that you would fight and die for, always. But now, especially, it seems as if these are the only things worth your time and energy.
May 21 – June 20
If you find yourself fighting about politics this week, remember that some things just shouldn’t be up for debate. Your sharp tongue will get you nowhere. Acknowledging people’s needs is a better strategy.
June 21 – July 22
Energy, ambition, and motivation may feel like far-off unreachable concepts to you right now. But don’t worry, by the end of the week you’ll be running circles around all of us. Rest while you can.
July 23 – Aug. 22
Acknowledging your limits may feel awful at first, but it can be liberating. Think of all the time you’ll get to reclaim when you move your focus to your strengths rather than your weaknesses.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Don’t just tell people that you care. Show them that you do with your actions. Small and sustained gestures will do more for your relationships than a single grand one.
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
You may find yourself taking on more than you can handle this week. One thing you can do to ease your burden is to stop fighting other people’s battles for them. Focus inward instead.
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
You’re feeling a burning passion that just keeps getting hotter. Embrace it, and allow yourself to enjoy the moment. Just don’t let it consume you. We’re all here to have a good time.
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
You’re getting into the foundational work of building something for the future. Take it step by step, as what you do at the beginning stages will ensure that things don’t topple later on.
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
For you, this week is about moving beyond self-imposed limits. Where have you set boundaries that need to be moved? If you want to grow, you need to allow yourself the space to do it.
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Being merely human is such a burden sometimes. But if you think things would be easier if you were just a disembodied idea, you’re wrong. Our puny human forms can accomplish great things with a little effort.
Feb. 19 – March 20
You may start feeling a little frisky later in the week. Don’t start fights you don’t want to finish. Be ready to walk away and take a breather, for everyone’s sake.
