Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of March 16-22, beautiful souls!

Last week was fast-paced, but we’re beginning to see some new energy. This week starts out with the last quarter Moon inviting us to slow down and enter the void before the New Moon happens at the beginning of next week. During this period, it’s best not to start new projects as creativity is low. Focus on the theme of surrender and listen to what your body needs.

It’s the astrological new year this Thursday as the Sun moves into the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, symbolized by the ram because it makes us quite headstrong and gallant. This is also known as the Spring Equinox, and spiritually, this specific astrological alignment helps us start a new cycle and get a fresh start as we begin the new Spring season.

Just because we aren’t starting new projects doesn’t mean this isn’t a busy week. We have three planets playing musical chairs this week. We have three inner planets changing signs this week in addition to the Moon. Inner planets change signs more frequently because they are closer to Earth. First is Mercury, the messenger planet, moves into the sign of Pisces, which can really help us bond with people on an emotional level.

That ingress happens on Monday and then by Thursday the Sun has finished it’s transit in Pisces and moves into the Fire sign Aries. As we said, this gives us a boost of energy and confidence so we can be productive. This energy will be lighting a fire under us for the next month. Finally, the planet of time, discipline, and karma, Saturn, enters the Air sign of Aquarius on Saturday where it will hang out until July 1, 2020. By Sunday we will also be out of the stronger post-shadow Mercury retrograde phase which means we will feel even more clear-headed about how to move forward.

  • Mercury (Pisces) sextile Uranus (Taur us) –This could lead to good conversations about romance. The eclectic energy of Pisces helps us speak about how we want to find new ways of expressing our sensuality (Taurus). The change-making energy of Uranus may have us speaking our minds with independent Taurean energy.
  • Venus (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces) – We could be looking to indulge our fantasies or even believe someone is meant for us when they really are not. Keep an eye on being delusional about who you have created someone to be in your mind so you don’t overlook their true character.
