Early in the morning on Sunday, March 6, Mars and Venus both moved from hard-working Capricorn into wild, inventive Aquarius. As a result, other people’s opinions — particularly about your relationships — no longer weigh quite so heavily on you. And when it comes to making big decisions, you don’t have to be so afraid to break with tradition. Then on Wednesday, communication planet Mercury moves into Pisces. Thought processes might seem more muddled than usual, but your insight into emotion — your own and other people’s — will be steady and true.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Over the past weeks and months, your brain has begun to feel jammed, clogged up with doubts and anxieties and other people’s loud, conflicting opinions. It’s only natural that the noisy world around you would affect your thinking, but this week, consider how you might clear out all the clutter in order to regain a more solid sense of self. Good things are on the way — gifts and opportunities meant for nobody else but you — and it’s your responsibility to be clear-eyed enough that you can recognize them when they arrive.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

When the circumstances of your life demand that you focus solely on what’s practical — when you’re required to put most of your energy toward managing your resources, or scheduling your time, or taking care of everyone who depends on you — then it’s easy to forget how much more there is to you than that. You’re someone who is able to do what needs to be done — but that isn’t all. This week, you’ll be invited to find your way back to your unique self, back to your dreams, back to the part of you that believes in magic.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

It’s difficult to believe that you’re doing enough, that you’re on the right path, when your mind keeps telling you that you’re supposed to do everything: participate in every action, have an informed opinion on every issue, keep in regular touch with every person you’ve ever met. It’s not that you’re a perfectionist, but rather that your curiosity, your hunger for knowledge and experiences, can’t be satisfied. This week, though, simply tend to your own corner of the world. You can let the rest go, trusting that you’re part of something bigger than yourself. You don’t have to do it all on your own.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This week, you’ll be reminded how very tiring it is to try new things. No matter how much you crave novelty, or how strong your desire for a new beginning, the truth is that it’s exhausting to turn off autopilot, to step back from your routines and into the unknown. Creating your path as you go is wonderful, but it does demand a great deal of you. The solution isn’t to give up on your hope for something different, to retreat to the safety of the familiar world. Instead, just keep up your courage. Move as slowly as you need to. You’re on the right path.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

Normally, once you’re done with something or someone, you prefer to leave them behind completely. A person can be fully in your life or fully out of it, but it’s too confusing to let people drift back and forth, in and out of your orbit. Maintaining strict boundaries keeps things manageable. But sometimes, there’s value in allowing for a little more flexibility. People you thought you’d never see again might reenter you life, and it won’t feel sad or confusing, but joyful. Old dreams you thought were dead can become viable once more. This week, it’s okay to reopen doors you believed to be closed.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

When things don’t go according to plan, that doesn’t mean the plan itself was a failure. When you don’t get what you wanted, that doesn’t mean you were wrong to want it in the first place. Maybe you’ve felt unappreciated or discouraged lately, like none of your endeavors are amounting to anything. This week, though, you can begin to see that none of your effort was in vain. It was just leading in a different direction than you thought. You don’t always understand change while it’s happening, but you don’t have to. Sometimes it takes a long time for your real path to come into focus, but it’s finally beginning to now.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

External validation can be a powerful motivator, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. Others might tell you that you should need nobody’s approval but your own, but that’s just not realistic. None of us exists in a vacuum; we live in this world together, and our social connections matter. This week, your challenge is to find the right balance. Let your desire for social harmony guide you, not trap you. You can be attentive to the people around you, while being attentive to your own strange and wonderful self, too.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Your quiet decisiveness is one of your great strengths. When you know what you want, you know, and there’s no point in waffling. Even so, sometimes you deserve some more time to wander and explore than you allow yourself. Just like anyone else, you could use a chance to experiment before you go all in. So this week, make a point of considering a few different possibilities, just to see what happens. You might find that your desires are different, more wide-ranging, than you realized. Or, you might find that you were right all along. Either way, open-mindedness will be good for you.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

You imagine, sometimes, that the shame you feel — for having let people down, for getting things wrong, for simply being human — is somehow uniquely, unbearably terrible. Really, though, learning to unburden oneself of those judgments is one of the great challenges of any human life. This week, it becomes possible for you to let some of your old regrets go. Where you need to make amends, you can, but then you move forward. This is a time for looking to the future, not the past. You can keep trying, keep growing, and keep making new mistakes.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

You’re always working so hard to learn how to live in this world — how to survive and how to succeed and how to do it all with integrity. And each time you think you finally have things figured out, some new complication arises that makes you question your conclusions. This week, your job is not to avoid those surprises, but to welcome them, even go out and meet them. The chaotic universe will keep frustrating your attempts to understand it completely, but there’s nothing so bad about that. Every surprise makes your life bigger, calling beautiful new possibilities into being.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

You’re better than most at envisioning possibilities, at keeping the faith that the future might still hold abundance and freedom. Here in the now, though, things are rarely as vibrant as your imaginings. It’s so easy to feel boxed in by all the routines and obligations that fill your daily life, easy to despair of ever escaping normalcy. So this week, it’s important to remember that you still have the power to say no to nearly anything. You can leave bad jobs or cruel people. You can refuse to fulfill other’s unfair expectations. Saying no isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the right thing to do.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Lately, you’ve been striving to see your life more clearly, to sharpen your focus and put a dampener on your tendency to fantasize. It can be useful to challenge yourself, to see how well your dreams hold up in the cold light of day. But this week, remember that strict mental clarity isn’t required of you all the time. Don’t feel bad if you aren’t as analytical in your thinking as others seem to want you to be. Emotional thinking isn’t always precise, and it doesn’t have to be. There is wisdom in compassion, too.
