The start and end dates of each sign change slightly every year.

By Abigail Lamoreaux, Copy Editor

Mars entered Aries yesterday, which is where this planet feels at home. In matters of work and communication, we will likely be more quick to display directness and even aggression. We will naturally find strength in various areas of life during this time, which will be aided by the cosmos. We shouldn’t be afraid of these changes, but rather, excited!

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

Stand proudly in your power. Deep down, you know your worth and are likely unafraid to ask for what you need. With Mars now in your sign, you will be among the most affected by this planetary shift, in a good way! Take action swiftly and make your presence known. You’re a force to be reckoned with and you know it!

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Remember to be gentle. There’s a side of you that is quick to aggression and incredibly stubborn. It comes out when you least expect it, and then you find yourself having to repair the damage. If you find it hard to get people on your side, it may be time to switch your tactics in favor of something softer.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Happy birth season! Be content with where you are. It can be hard to be happy with the amount of progress you may or may not be making, but it would do you well to remember how much you’ve already accomplished. We are all in different stages of life, so don’t feel the need to compare your journey to others’.

Cancer (June 21 to July 21)

Don’t stretch yourself too thin. It’s probably in your nature to be caring and considerate of others, but if you don’t always have the emotional capacity to support other people, don’t push yourself into doing it. Would these people do the same for you? Learn to prioritize your own feelings and needs over everyone else’s.

Leo (July 22 to Aug. 22)

Be excited about the future! Perhaps you’re about to go on a grand adventure, off into unknown circumstances, rife with conflict and problems to solve. Know that it’s OK to struggle. Know that you probably will struggle. It’s all part of being human; you don’t need to be ashamed of being human. Don’t let your pride keep you from enjoying life.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Find joy in life’s details. Lately you may have been feeling that the daily grind is becoming more of a daily grudge. It may uplift your spirits to refocus yourself away from the bigger picture and onto smaller subjects. You’re likely already detail-oriented, so it shouldn’t be too hard. Optimism is not just for the naive. It’s for those with hope, too.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Fight for what you truly believe in. As the sign of the scales, you can’t help but have two equal opinions about practically everything. Know that it’s OK to just have one opinion. It’s time to get serious about what really matters to you so you can fight for it. A lot hangs in the balance and there is power in numbers. Add yourself to the ranks.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Get out of your shell. You’re presenting yourself in a quiet and reserved way recently, for reasons entirely personal to you. That’s fine and all, but it may be concerning to the people who care about you. Let them know that you’re not dead, and maybe engage in a little conversation. Let people know what’s going on in your world.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 20)

Keep moving forward. You’re about to be swept up in so much chaos and it will be hard to keep up. It may help you to find the joy in what you’re doing. What is rewarding to you? How can you stay upbeat when life is throwing downbeats your way? As the sign of the archer, forward motion is the way to go here.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 19)

What are you dreading? There is something about the future that’s weighing on your mind, and it can be difficult to shake it off. Don’t be afraid! You’re good at rolling with the punches and adapting to difficult circumstances. Of course, you may rebut that the situation is unfair, and it can be, but that doesn’t mean you should give up in advance.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 17)

Take time for yourself that is 100% for YOU. It is entirely possible that you are overworking yourself, either because you don’t trust others to do things as well as you, or because you feel a certain duty to get it done. While either or both causes can be true, you must rest before you burn out. Schedule in a nap if you have to.

Pisces (Feb. 18 to March 19)

Advocate for yourself. You’re naturally a softie, which can often translate into people treating you like a doormat. However, you have the energy of Gemini in the sun and Aries in Mars on your side this week. Hopefully, you will feel more capable of being direct and honest with people about your needs, and even your wants! You can do it!
