With Pisces season beginning Monday, unresolved emotions might surface, but this is for the best. The plethora of planets in Aquarius makes for a confusing time for all signs, but Pisces season will break up this confusion and allow for compromise and the use of new problem-solving tactics. Mercury enters Pisces on Friday, allowing compassion to flow easily. With the full moon in Virgo on Saturday, signs caught in the chaos of Aquarius season might regain practicality and gain a new sense of ambition. 

Venus will meet Mars on Thursday. The last time this passionate affair occurred was on March 6, 2022. Any connections made around that time may reappear and/or strengthen, but if you find yourself ready to let go of those past connections, now is the time to do so. 

With the fast-paced changes in astrology this week, here is some advice on how each sign can remain steady:  

Aries (March 21 – April 19) 🔥 

Your season is on the rise, and you might find yourself feeling reflective as your birthday comes closer. Sometimes, you might fuss over not feeling productive enough or overthinking what you were doing the year prior, but it’s not the time to worry. With the full moon in Virgo on Saturday, you might gain a better understanding of how to work through personal issues. Overthinking is completely normal, but try not to stress yourself out too much. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 🪴

You’re a naturally nurturing sign, and this is a blessing and a curse. With the craziness going on, you might have found yourself carrying the stress of your loved ones on your back, but who is going to carry yours? You deserve to unload your emotional stressors before you take on anyone else’s. The full moon in Virgo on Friday should help reduce your stress and get you back on the right track, so stay tuned. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) 🌬

As of the past year, you might have noticed the influence you have within the workplace, within social circles and even within relationships. It’s time to influence these connections for the greater good. Use your status within the workplace to make a positive change, or even help resolve a conflict within your social circle. Be sure to use your skills for the better. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) 🌊

With Pisces season beginning Monday, you should feel a sense of relief. As Pisces is a fellow water sign, you both share the love of emotions and compassion. This week might be extremely relaxing and therapeutic. It was about time you got a week to yourself to unwind. The full moon on Friday will bring you insight on how your daily activities are benefitting you, and if they’re not, that’ll be apparent. 

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) 🔥

You might have had a hard time saying no in the past, and you still might, but Pisces season will help you learn to set boundaries. If you’re in a relationship where you feel you’re being treated poorly, you’ll finally gain the confidence to stand up for yourself. This week is all about gaining self-confidence because, contrary to popular belief, you have a hard time standing up for yourself. 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) 🪴

You might be working a lot recently, and you typically love to work. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but other aspects of your life may be faltering. With the full moon on Friday being in your sign, you might feel motivated to balance your life a bit differently. Having a solid work-life balance is important, and this full moon might demonstrate that to you. 

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) 🌬

With Venus meeting Mars on Thursday, you might have an overwhelming urge to express your feelings to your crush, but you still might not. You might have swallowed your feelings down out of the fear of rejection, and that’s OK. With the full moon in Virgo on Friday, you’ll have a moment to reflect on your feelings and decide what the best way of going about things is.   

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) 🌊

With Pisces season starting Monday, you might feel more in your element as a fellow water sign. You might find yourself having the time to go out with old friends and/or spending more time with your significant other. Romantic pursuits are also on the rise with Venus meeting Mars on Thursday. Be sure to put yourself out there and have fun. 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) 🔥

This week might entail a huge moment for your career. With the full moon in Virgo on Friday, you might finally get the recognition you’ve been waiting for. You put in a lot of hard work in 2023, leading to a possible promotion and/or pay raise. Be prepared for all eyes to be on you in the workplace. 

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) 🪴

The full moon in Virgo on Friday might have you planning a trip to a place you’ve never wanted to go to before. This full moon might cause you to come out of your shell and explore, whether that be physically exploring or exploring new topics of learning. Be sure to share any knowledge you learn with those around you; the things you learn throughout the week might be important for future endeavors. 

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) 🌬

Although your season is over, you might still be feeling adventurous and excited. You might find yourself talking to a past fling or reconnecting with an ex you never thought you’d see again. Flirtation is in the air this week, and it’s best if you take advantage of it, but only with the right people. Things that occur this week might have a significant impact on future events, so be sure to avoid and/or break toxic cycles. 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) 🌊

It’s about time it’s your season. You might have felt rough the last couple weeks, but this week, and even throughout the month, you’re sure to feel more in your element. The emotional troubles you’ve faced recently might dissolve into thin air. New potential connections, whether that be platonic, romantic or even work-related, might suddenly appear. Go to public events and be sure to put yourself out there. The individuals you meet this week might improve certain aspects of your life.
