Spring break will be hard for a lot of people. Many planets are in a phase of transition this week into new signs, so it should not come as a surprise if life is suddenly unsettling. We may dissociate or become more sensitive, but it’s nothing to worry about. What matters most is that we continue to healthily cope with our problems.


Aries (March 21 to April 19)

Run to safety. You and Sagittarius are in similar boats recently; a lot is happening in a little amount of time and it’s taking everything in you to not scream. Don’t feel defeated. Therapy presents itself in many forms. Try to self-soothe however you can until the storm passes, staying conscious of whether it’s healthy.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Tell people the truth. There’s an air of mystery about you this week, as if you’re purposefully concealing how you feel. Be clear with your intentions; don’t only tell half-truths because it’s more convenient for you. That sort of attitude can come across as selfish and disrespectful, even if you don’t mean it to be.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Look inward. There’s some resistance in your soul about accepting a certain truth about yourself. Maybe you know what it is, but you’re pushing it down because you don’t have the time to focus on self-growth. I say that’s B.S. You’re a hard worker in other aspects of your life, so apply that to your personal growth as well.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Chill out! If existential anxiety has been dragging down your mood every five minutes lately, it may be time to consider scheduling regular hangouts with friends or other such planned activities, which can be as simple as movie nights. Whatever you end up doing, the security of a schedule should help ease your mind.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)

Stay focused. Distractions present themselves frequently to you, and it’s so tempting to give them attention, but you must be resolute. This is especially true if you’re recovering from something, be it illness or loss. You have the power of mindfulness, and you can employ it whenever you need it.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Stay hopeful. Even through the chaos and potential dangers of everyday life, you are expectant about the future. Perhaps there’s an exciting trip coming up. Maybe you’re working really hard on a project. Whatever it is, don’t stop now. Keep building the momentum, and the reward on the other side of your efforts will seem even greater.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Ask yourself questions. You and Gemini share a need for introspection this week, yet your need has to do more with shifting your perspective about yourself. This kind of work on the self will be more beneficial if you journal about it. Journaling regularly can even help you stop projecting your feelings onto others.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Examine your insecurities. Despite your cool-person exterior, you are not immune to feelings of self-doubt or unworthiness. You’re likely involved in many clubs or projects, but maybe you wonder if it’s enough. Show people your vulnerable side this week, only if just to let them see that you are human, too. 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

You’re doing the best that you can. Like with Aries, you shouldn’t feel defeated by life right now. There is a lot happening for you and it can all be incredibly stressful. You may not think your work is good enough, but if you’re giving your all, people will hopefully recognize this. Remember not to work for the approval of others.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Stretch, take your meds, etc. All of the above is necessary for you right now. Your basic needs must be met, not with panic, yet with intention. Often you can become stuck in a cycle of overworking with very little recovery time. This is unhealthy. Because you’re smart, though, you already knew that. Now break the cycle.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Be slow to trust. You’re not gullible, but you’re not impervious. Due to your eccentric nature, people are more likely to take advantage of you or lie to you because they see your strong individuality as being unaware or immature. Try to trust your gut, but be aware that even the smartest of people can miss red flags.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Happy birth season! Mercury is in your sign for a few weeks, which may help you feel more emboldened in communication with others, particularly in a work or creative environment. People may open up to you more and confide in you, so if you’re not used to that happening, mentally prepare yourself.
