Aries Sun/Rising Wooooah, it’s almost your season, can you feel it?! As the days dwindle down, your power grows in intensity. In the first half of this month, you’re going to be asked to become more stable thanks to Venus shifting into Taurus. It’s possible your financial situation isn’t ideal, especially when Venus was in Aries last month. Start putting away a little bit of money every week, or work on your budgeting skills. Part of your future endeavors require financial stability and literacy, as you will come to terms with the Full Moon in Virgo. Aside from finances, you have opportunity to heal this month. It’s possible that Chiron in Aries has been triggering your aggressive, angry nature. You may find that you stifle your emotions, and when it comes out, it’s like a pot that’s boiling over. Between the 19th to the 23rd, you’re going to have a reality check. You might be the one thing standing in your way. It could be related to unprocessed emotions or trauma. You’ll have clarity about your path, and how to get there by the New Moon. Set intentions as to how to go forth on your journey. To-do lists, goal-setting, and more could be helpful. This will be an ideal time too as the Sun is in your sign. You have the power, so use it.
Taurus Sun/Rising During this next month, your finances are going to significantly improve! With Venus in your sign, you’re going to prioritize saving. You have a good idea of how to attain a long-term goal through financial literacy. This Venusian influence will also make you Romanize stability and loyalty in your partnerships. You may even be envisioning these aspects from relationships that sprung up during the Mercury Rx period. Don’t cling on to what could be, if this is the case. Mercury Rx relationships have a funny habit of never truly coming into fruition. The Full Moon in Virgo will make you re-prioritize anyways. Now isn’t the best time to give into relationships. The Full Moon will put you in check of your goals. Taurus, you’re a stubborn, slow-moving sign. Sometimes so slow, you miss opportunities. Full Moon in Virgo will ask you to be more flexible, more go with the flow, so you don’t keep missing out on what life has to offer. Again, this will be checked when Uranus sextiles the True Node. You’ll be called to re-focus on what you really want from life, which may call for change. Scary, I know. But if you don’t give into change or accept it, Saturn will kick your ass back into gear. Saturn will teach you that change is necessary for your life to truly begin. Aries season and New Moon in Aries will make you more courageous, which will be necessary to brave the changes coming your way.
Gemini Sun/Rising How was your Mercury Rx? Messy? Dramatic? Something tells me you, the Astrological Talker, had egregious miscommunication this Rx period. Was it on your own accord, or someone else’s? Whatever it is, Truth always comes into Light. During the post-shadow end, you’re going to have a chance to think about everything logically, and even come to realizations. Aquarian energy in Mercury will help you draw conclusions, even if they seem out of the box at first. When Mercury makes the collective shift back into Pisces, that will be the time to revisit your Mercury Rx events. Go forward with compassion, listen to your intuition, and be flexible. You’ll find that you always knew the Truth in your heart, but that doesn’t mean that the revelations won’t still be shocking. With the Full Moon in Virgo, you can begin thinking ahead about the solid foundation you’ve been wanting to build. You’ve been coasting, but that hasn’t served you. The Full Moon will help you reflect on your goals, and actually making advances towards them. Between the 19th to the 23rd, you’re going to also begin refocusing on yourself. Particularly, your spiritual path. Mercury Rx may have pointed out that you’re ignoring or not focusing on building your intuition. Your spiritual path may be blocked because of it. Gemini, you tend to be more rational than emotional. But emotional intelligence is still intelligence. Focus on building that. If you don’t, your work/life balance will continue taking a hit, which impedes your spiritual path. When Mars enters Aquarius at the end of the month, you’re going to be asked to re-focus on past projects and long-term goals. Get back to those and start tackling them. You’ll be surprised of the innovative ideas you have along the way.
Cancer Sun/Rising My, my, my, did Mercury Rx check your mental health? Pisces season and the Rx may have you feeling bogged down. When Aquarius slides in Mercury, now will be the time to get out of your emotional funk. Try connecting with your friends again. Your support system wants to be there for you, so let them. If anything emotional came up during the Rx, now is the time to review the event(s) with clarity and stability. Again, lean on friends for help, support, advice, whatever. Venus in Taurus can also aide in this. Loyalty, stability, and trust will be a major factor in your social circles and romantic relationships. By the Full Moon in Virgo, you may want to reflect on your emotional and mental health. Start brainstorming ways to get yourself out of a funk, or to stay out of a funk. Sometimes, that starts on the physical level – eating right, dressing confidently, working out (serotonin, baby!). That then translate to the emotional level – feeling balanced, confident, happier, etc. You’ll have the power and confidence to begin these new healthy, happy habits during Aries season. When Uranus sextiles the True Node, this may be seen as another clarifying moment of “Yeah, I do need to work on my mental/emotional health because it’s related to XYZ”. XYZ could translate to your familial wounds/relationships, uneven work/life balance, and even not being confident in yourself or your abilities. Regardless, the second half of March will really be a reality check. Like Aries, you may find that you’re standing in your own way to happiness. Use Mars in Aquarius to begin thinking outside the box on how to get yourself back on your feet.
Leo Sun/Rising When Mercury shifts into Aquarius, it might be kind of weird for you, Leo. After all, this is your sister sign in Mercury. You may feel stifled, or unable to speak your thoughts coherently. This is potentially a time of reflection for you. Instead of trying to actively move forward with the Mercury Rx events, take time for R&R. During your reflection, you may come to unexpected realizations. Don’t share these yet. Wait until the moment is right. Venus in Taurus will make you question what you crave in your relationships. Drama, passion, and heat may be fun… sometimes. But stability and loyalty is also ideal. You can have a fulfilling relationship without it being crazy. Full Moon in Virgo will be a time for reflection on personal goals. You may find that your new health regimes are paying off. You may also find that although you’re in a good financial situation, it may not be enough for you. Maybe a new job or a new career path is in your future. Start exploring your options. By the New Moon in Aries, you may be ready to begin working towards your new path. Your new path may be clarified when Jupiter quintiles Chiron and when Saturn moves into Aquarius… Here’s why – Jupiter quintiles Chiron, which will make you truly reflect on the healing you may have to do. As a fixed sign, you may be stubborn about the process of healing, the methods of healing, or even beginning. But Saturn will point out that you have to begin sooner or later. When you start to heal yourself, you’re embarking on your spiritual path. If you’re not trying to actively work on yourself, then other parts of your life suffer. For example, if you replace bravado withe genuine confidence, you may find that you *actually* have the self-confidence to go forward with your career goals. When you improve yourself, you improve all aspects of your life.
Virgo Sun/Rising Pisces season can be a bit overwhelming for you. After all this is your sister sign. Your Mercury Rx may have blindsided you. Virgo, you’re such a rational, logical sign. You’re also mutable, so it’s a staunch black and white logic for you. However, the Mercury Rx events that have played out may have really swept you off your feet. It could be you not seeing things for what they are… or maybe you saw things exactly for what they are as they were presented, but didn’t have the full picture. During your post-shadow end, Aquarius is going to clean some shit up for you. Don’t worry, you’ll get your clarity. Venus in Taurus can aide in this. You’ll be asked to be more inflexible in your relationships. Virgo, you have a horrible tendency to pick the worst partners for yourself. You like the fixer-uppers. Venus in Taurus is going to make you inflexible on your standards. Aim higher, Virgo, it’s time to upgrade. Full Moon in Virgo will also call what you’ve been procrastinating into focus. Time to reflect on your lack of progress. Instead of giving others your energy, start giving it back to yourself. Aries season will help you find the confidence to be selfish. It’s ok to be selfish! Between the 19th to the 23rd, you’re going to find that healthy selfishness is much needed to grow, evolve, and prosper. It’s ok to be focused on your own life. New Moon in Aries will aide you in setting me-focused intentions for the year. What are your goals? What are your desires? How will YOU accomplish this? How can YOU hold yourself accountable for this?
Libra Sun/Rising Your Mercury Rx was shady! Relationship draaaamaaaaaa! Who’s in the wrong, who’s in the right? What is the Truth? Libra, you’re a Zodiac mirror, so you have the ability to empathize with others. But right now, your empathy is on lockdown. These Rx events have made your reconsider your friendships and relationships. Jealousy, gossip, and half-truths maybe at play. When Aquarius moves into Mercury, prepare for the light to come out of all of this. Part of that is knowing when to be accountable for your actions. Not anybody else’s. When Pisces re-enters Mercury, use that time to begin acts of forgiveness and compassion. Turn your empathy back on. See why others acted the way they did, reflect on your own actions, and smooth things over. You don’t have to lose your relationships. Maybe focus on instilling healthy boundaries. Venus in Taurus can aide in this. You’re going to have to figure out stability and loyalty in your relationships. When the Sun moves into Aries, you may be a bit uncomfortable as this is your sister sign. You’re not an impulsive, brash person. But maybe it’s time to be. Between the 19th and the 23rd, you can expect radical change. It may begin on a small scale, like losing unhealthy relationships or having a sudden realization. But this will have a ripple effect that will play out over the course of this year. You’re going to experience highs and lows in your inner circle. When the New Moon goes into Aries, you may be asked to focus on independence. Time to break away, and be your own person for awhile.
Scorpio Sun/Rising I told you, I fucking told you, your intuition was going to be tested this Mercury Rx! Were you spot on, or were you blindsided? Like Gemini, you may be in the wrong, and may be in the right. Guess what? You don’t have all the puzzle pieces… yet. The first half of March is going to be enlightening, Scorpio. You will dig, dig, dig for the Truth. But honestly, it will come unexpectedly! Try not to ruminate on it. Everything comes into the Light eventually. The Full Moon in Virgo will be telling. You’re going to reflect on how your letting your events affect your goals and health. Is it working for you or against you? Time to drop the unhealthy baggage and habits. Between the 19th to the 21st, you’re going to want a reality check. It’s time to fine tune your intuition, or your confidence in your intuition. Especially when it comes the funky feelings about work and family. Something is off in one (or both) of these sectors of life. You may find the answer, or the beginning of an answer, when Jupiter quintiles Chiron on the 23rd. You may just find that the thing hindering your life in unresolved personal issues that are manifesting outwards. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. New Moon in Aries will help you find a sense of self-confidence and bravery. It’s time to begin tackling your problems. Mars in Aquarius can help you think of funky, innovative ways to deal with your problems head on. It can also cool any emotional outbursts, which can allow you to face your problems logically and rationally.
Sagittarius Sun/Rising Honestly, your biggest Mercury Rx problem would be dipping into unhealthy coping mechanisms. Some of you may have had a very unexpected bender. When Mercury moves into Aquarius, you may find that your very social life and partying dies down significantly. It’s okay to relax now. When Full Moon in Virgo comes into play, you may find that your coping habits need to be check. This Full Moon could point out that instead of facing problems head on, you may engage in unhealthy coping mechanisms. This could be using substances, excessive drinking, hyper-focusing on others, working too much/keeping your schedule filled, and a lack of alone time. Venus in Taurus can help you find some self-care practices that work for you, not against you. When the Sun slides into Aries, you’re going to feel refreshed. Now is the time to begin thinking ahead. Like your sister sign, Gemini, you may have been coasting. But Aries season can help kick-start any plans or goals you have. Part of these goals may include healing familial wounds. You may find yourself longing for a better relationship with your parental figures or being in a better state with your family. This could come unexpectedly, or feel out of the blue. In reality, there’s going to be an instance that triggers this between the 19th and the 30th. You may be spending time with another family, seeing how they act and wish you had the same. You may receive a text or phone call from a family member that triggers an emotional response. This time period may have an anniversary that affects you every year since the event has happened (I.e. divorce, death). You may feel intense anger or rage. But remember, the root of anger is sadness. You’ll find that this root may be linked to childhood wounds. New Moon in Aries will ask you to think about healing your inner child. Now is the time.
Capricorn Sun/Rising Mercury Rx may have been a time where you ruminated too much on the past. You may have felt stuck on past events, especially if social media kept reminding you of these (thanks Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook memories!). Something didn’t work out. A job, a relationship, an opportunity. You may want to reach out to an old connection or try starting the old path again. But your Mercury Rx lesson was to learn that everything happens for a reason, and this reason is to push you along your true path. When the Full Moon in Virgo comes, think about your progress so far. Congratulate yourself on your hard work. You’re headed in the right direction, but you need to believe in yourself. As brash and bold as Aries can be, you can actually benefit from this energy. Aries season may feel renewing to you. Indulge in some confidence, some bravery, and some positivity. It’s ok to be bold in what you want. It’s also ok to be hopeful. When Saturn moves into Aquarius, you may feel inspired. You can reach your goals while being rebellious, free, and innovative. Saturn will also teach you that freedom does come in the form of responsibility. This is yet another part of your spiritual path. When Jupiter quintiles Chiron, you may have some unresolved Father Wounds to attend to. Practice forgiving with boundaries. You can forgive others without letting them back into your life. New Moon in Aries will also have you reconnect with your inner child. Let loose, have some fun! After all, all work and no play makes Capricorn a very dull sign.
Aquarius Sun/Rising You have quite a bit of planetary power in your sign this month! When Mercury moves into your sign, this may be a relief. Your Rx period had you feeling emotional, and boy, was that weird for you! You may have tried reaching out to an ex, or showing unexpected vulnerability to friends. With Mercury now in your sign, maybe take a step back and ask yourself why you got emotional. You can now review with logic. When Mercury moves back into Pisces, practice self-compassion. It’s okay to be in your feelings and actually show it. You don’t always have to be a pillar of stoicism. The rest of the astrology for this month will actually ask you to explore your emotionality. You should really consider sitting with your emotions this month. Icky, I know. But there is a lot to be gained by becoming emotionally right with yourself. Saturn in Aquarius is going to force you into some R&R time. You may find that your emotional balance is easily affected by your social situations this month. Again, dive into it. Ask yourself why you’re feeling some sort of way and what’s causing it. You may be surprised to find that repressed memories are coming to surface. New Moon in Aries may pinpoint that your emotional balance is out of wack. It may have to do with healing your inner child. When Mars moves into your sign, you can begin exploring your anger, aggression, and sexuality with rationality.
Pisces Sun/Rising Your birthday season is almost over! You may be okay with this. As a sign who has a Mercury Rx going on in their season, this may have been a wacky season. You may have felt like your emotional power and intuition were off. You may have wanted to engage in fun, but then over-did it. You may have realized that your balance in life is just plain off. You’ve been a little too flexible, Pisces. That may be the root of your problem. All or nothing isn’t a way to live. Your fellow mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius – know this all too well, too. When there’s a Full Moon in Virgo, you may take a hard look at yourself. You’ve been a little too unfocused, ungrounded, and, dare I say, stuck at the procrastination station. It’s time to be self-critical. What can you do to begin moving forward? Part of that is having a healthy work/life balance, which will come to light when Uranus sextiles the True Node. You’ve got to get a grip on what you want from your career. You also ought to get a grip on healthy work/life balance. Like Sagittarius, it’s possible you’ve been on a bender or engaging in unhealthy coping habits during the Rx. Saturn in Aquarius will shine a light on your community. It’s possible there are people in your inner circle who don’t have your best interest, whether this be intentionally or unintentionally. It’s ok to cut off people who hinder you on your journey. Aries season and New Moon in Aries will call your independence into focus. Again, it’s possible your relationships are hindering you because they are codependent. It’s time break away for a bit. Focus on yourself, and where you want to be.
