It’s Aries season! Finally, a fire sign has a prominent place in the sky again. It’s perfectly timed with the weather warming back up. Don’t be intimidated by this shift; not much has truly changed, and any fears will only be magnified if you let yourself be devoured by the flames of newness.

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

Happy birth season! Let some sunshine into your life through means of celebration. Even if you’re already a party animal, you likely want to throw a bash even harder than usual due to the seasons changing. If you’d rather stay in and celebrate life quietly, that is perfectly valid as well. Don’t let anyone convince you that you’re not worthy of having fun.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Practice independence. Your loved ones are happy to be anchors for you, but it shouldn’t become an expectation for them to always uplift or soothe you. These are skills anyone can utilize on themselves, and it may prove beneficial for you to learn how to be your own hype man for those moments when others can’t.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Stop jumping the gun. It takes a lot in you to hold back when you’re waiting for something, but learning how to be patient and accept this waiting period can lead to more fruitful results once you are able to let loose. Don’t worry about missing your opportunities; your powerful intuition won’t let you miss out.

Cancer (June 21 to July 21)

How are you enriching yourself? Your life may have fallen into a series of boring patterns lately. Ask yourself how you’re staying motivated, whether your classes are pushing you enough, whether your friend group is a help or a hindrance. This introspection should at least be momentarily entertaining, and at most, inspiring.

Leo (July 22 to Aug. 22)

Confront the naysayers. Despite being called the most “vain” or “self-centered” sign, you are hyper aware of when the attention you receive is in bad faith. Keep advocating for yourself, especially when it’s difficult. If people try to rag on decisions you’ve made, let them know it’s not their place to think for you. Because, truthfully, it’s not!

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

There is no magical “fix-it” spell. You have a tendency to be hard on yourself, and you likely believe you’re doing things “wrong.” Here’s a secret: nobody actually knows how to be perfect. Most of the time, people just get lucky. And what is luck but a cosmic coincidence? Find optimism in nihilism — it would certainly fit your brand.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Adjust your mindset when necessary. How your stubbornness manifests is through your indecisiveness, which can make you appear difficult to work with. Don’t change yourself completely because of this, but know when it’s time to put your foot down and be serious. Avoidance will only create problems later.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Do you set arbitrary boundaries for yourself? Perhaps you believe that once you complete so many tasks, then you’ll “deserve” a reward. Perhaps this is true; however, the way you choose to discipline yourself could be limiting your happiness. Don’t avoid the pleasure of having or doing something just because you believe you shouldn’t.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 20)

Don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone has a different set of struggles as well as varying capabilities to carry them. Even if you think other people have it worse, you are still allowed to have it bad! Everybody’s journey is different and incomparable to anyone else’s. Remind yourself of this throughout the week.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 19)

Lost momentum is not equivalent to failure. Lately, you may have been putting in more effort to express yourself and reach out to others. Perhaps, though, something recently changed and those efforts feel lost. Feeling distraught that you’ve lost the wind in your sails means that you’ve experienced the wind before. Reroute and find it again.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 17)

Be ready for anything. Venus and Mars are currently in Aquarius, meaning you are more likely to feel their effects. You may feel more creative, sensual, caring, but also more intense, controlling, claustrophobic. The energy this week could be vicious, but it might not. You’ll just have to be brave and find out for yourself.

Pisces (Feb. 18 to March 19)

Reassess your goals. While Mercury is still hanging out in your sign, take the time to think about your future. This is especially encouraged now that the astrological calendar has moved back into bright-eyed, bushy-tailed Aries territory. Are your aspirations still realistic? Rework your ambitions just in case life throws you for a loop later.
