Early in the morning on Sunday, March 27, Mercury entered assertive Aries. While it moves through this sign, you’ll find yourself speaking directly and honestly — though perhaps not always diplomatically. You’ll be able to make decisions quickly, without wavering and without fear. On Thursday night, a new moon in Aries makes you long for a new and exciting chapter to begin — and you won’t have to wait around long to see it happen. If the universe isn’t offering what you need, you’re brave and wild enough right now to make something wonderful happen, all on your own.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

You’ve been trying hard to be responsible — to move with caution and care, to choose moderation and restraint. Sometimes, this is what the world requires of you, and other times, it’s just good to practice. But this week, it’s okay to loosen your grip a bit. You don’t have to tread carefully, or to deprive yourself of fun or beauty, or to save up all your power for the moment when you “really” need it. This is the time to use the strength you have, to enjoy life as much as you can, and to share your love without holding back.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

It can be surprisingly uncomfortable to find yourself really wanting — wanting something bold, extravagant. It’s not that you’re unfamiliar with ambition, or that you don’t want a rich and beautiful life, only that you typically try to confine your imagination to happiness that seems reasonable, attainable. This week, though, you might find yourself wanting more. A life that’s ordinary no longer feels like quite enough; grand and special is what you’re looking for. There are times when it’s wisest to move slowly and steadily, to avoid getting ahead of yourself, but right now, you can be daring in your desires.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

No individual is powerful enough to remake society on their own. Nobody is even strong enough to control all that happens in their own life. Other people are constantly surprising us, forever interrupting even the most flawless of plans. You understand this very well. But occasionally, you take it to mean that there’s no use planning at all, no point attempting to exert your will or chase your dreams in a universe as chaotic as ours. This week, it’s important to try anyway — to put your energy and bright talent to use. You may be surprised by the results, but you can handle that.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

In our culture of self-optimization, it’s easy to feel that you have a duty to fight your own nature, to twist your personality into a different, supposedly better shape. And maybe it’s true that you could find ways to be kinder, or braver, or more consistent in showing up for those you love. But it isn’t your job to suppress those parts of you that are difficult, strange, surprising. There are all manner of ways to be good and courageous and useful in the world. Don’t strive to meet someone else’s standards if they make you forget what’s already magical about you.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

Life hasn’t exactly been dull for you lately — on the contrary, it’s full of work and stress and motion — but even so, you’ve felt something missing. You’ve sought, but been unable to find, an extra spark or sense of momentum, an indication that there’s more to your life than this tiring, mundane labor. But everything moves in cycles; you won’t feel uninspired forever. This week, don’t give up on the magic you’ve been looking for. Grandeur and beauty and purpose will return. Being alive can become exciting, electrifying, fun again.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

There are times when speaking up — about your emotions, your ideas, your disagreements — hardly seems worth it, because you don’t have faith that anyone will really listen. It ends up being easier, less frustrating, to hold yourself back and swallow your words, to keep even your best ideas to yourself. You can convince yourself that it wouldn’t have made a difference anyway. But this week, it’s important that you try again and keep trying until someone pays attention. Not only because other people deserve to hear what you have to say, but also because you deserve to be heard.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

If you were starting your life all over again, would you make different choices? Would you be bolder, wilder, more confident in your ambitions? Sometimes when you consider all the paths your life could have taken, you only end up discouraged, filled with regret over everything you never got to experience. This week, though, such contemplation can make you strangely hopeful. Your desires, even the frustrated ones, point you toward the life you need. It’s not too late to make a change — and not in some hypothetical, alternate timeline, but in this life you’re living now.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

In your experience, the truth is often hidden. You’ve seen others disguise their emotions with layers of politeness and charm, and bury their authentic personalities too deep to be easily discovered. And so it can be difficult for you to trust that sometimes, things really are exactly what they seem, and people mean just what they say. This week, it’s important at least to entertain the possibility that, for better or worse, others are being completely genuine with you. Trust that there are people who care for you, simply, straightforwardly, and you won’t have to dig deep to believe it.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes you put too much pressure on yourself to be original. You imagine that the only stories worth telling are ones that are brand-new, the only ideas worth putting forward are totally unique. You imagine that your thoughts, your life itself, must be strange and unprecedented in order to be worth anyone’s attention. But this week, it’s important not to disregard the parts of yourself you think are too ordinary. What you need to do right now isn’t judge whether your life is “special” enough, but to stop thinking so hard and just live it.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

In your particularly pessimistic moments, you imagine that you’ve already used up all your opportunities — that you’re too old for any more new beginnings, that all your habits and ideas are too firmly rooted for you to be able to change them. No matter how dissatisfied you are, you tell yourself that you’ve waited too long to do anything about it, and now you’re stuck. But you aren’t, not really. New possibilities haven’t dried up. You’re not locked into a stagnant life. This week, you can believe again that change is possible. Not just abstractly, but for you.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

The inside of your head can be a chilly place from time to time. You can be so caring, so generous toward others, yet so cold and unforgiving with yourself. You deny yourself every kind of softness, imagining that you don’t need, or else don’t deserve, the warmth of kindness or affection or excitement. But everyone needs warmth to live; why would you expect yourself to be different? This week, when the universe offers you the heat you’ve been missing, don’t hold back. Right now the warmth of your chaotic humanity is better than any cold perfection.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Fear is an unreasonable response to our strange and dangerous existence. Once in a while, a healthy amount of caution can stop you from making reckless choices, can keep you safe. It’s just that this week, all the wrong people will benefit when anxiety dictates your actions. Whether it’s world leaders or just the controlling figures in your own life, those who want you to be afraid are the ones who don’t have your best interests at heart. Choose courage every time you can. The danger right now isn’t in overconfidence — it’s in forgetting how much power you have.
