Horoscopes: Aries Season and a solar eclipse

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Happy birthday, Aries! The new moon in your sign on March 21 gave you the opportune time to manifest your year ahead. When The Sun enters your First House of Self and Personality on April 14, your most prominent personality traits will be pulled to the surface, and the manifestations you established in March will start to find their ways back to you. Mars, your ruling planet, is in Gemini during this time, driving your strong communication and planning skills. This is a great time for group projects and successfully boundary-setting with others. Know your worth and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself this month. Play the birthday card for free dessert. You deserve it. 

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

You have a busy month ahead of you, Taurus, so be careful to stay on top of your to-do lists. On March 31, Mercury will move through your Twelfth House of Secrets and Uncertainties, answering questions and clearing up unclear premonitions. Venus, your ruling sign, will transit through Taurus on April 6, brightening your sense of self and hopefully bringing some extra cash your way. The Sun will follow through your Twelfth House again on April 14, helping you accept and understand these recently revealed truths more fully. Finally, a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 20 will help set up a magical birthday next month. Enjoy!

Gemini (May 21–June 21)

Good and bad money news for you, Gemini. Mercury, your ruling planet, will transit through your Eleventh House of Income and Wealth on March 31, bringing monetary changes — whether for better or worse — to come shortly. The Sun will follow on April 14, bringing some much-needed funds your way. However, when Mercury begins its retrograde on April 21, be prepared for confusion and conflicting narratives around expenses. Don’t let this stop you from making necessary decisions, but maybe hold onto your pocket change in case things get rocky. 

Cancer (June 22–July 22)

Like The Moon, your ruling planet, things are changing for you, Cancer. Mercury moves through your Tenth House of Work and Career March 31, bringing good news if you are currently job hunting or trying to organize your team. Venus will transit through your Eleventh House of Income and Wealth on April 6, bringing financial abundance for the month ahead. Closing out the season, a New Moon and Solar Eclipse on April 20 will provide you an excellent time to decide what things and people are benefiting you most in your life and what it’s time to let go of. Be kind to yourself and allow yourself to let go so you can move onto bigger things. 

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)

It’s a good start to the season for you, Leo. Venus will enter your Tenth House of Work and Career on April 6, bringing a pay raise or bonus for your recent hard work. The Sun, your ruling sign, will move into your Ninth House on April 14. This boost of energy should bring you extra luck and fortune this month. Mercury — in the same house — will begin its retrograde on April 21, making your ability to communicate and stay on top of things more complicated, but not impossible. Take extra time to keep your ducks in a row, and keep your head up this month. You’ve got this!

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)

Nothing major is happening this month for you, Virgo, but that’s not a bad thing! Mercury will enter your Eighth House of Intimacy and Transformation on March 31, hopefully bringing you some answers about yourself you’ve been looking for. The Sun will then enter your Eighth House as well on April 14, helping you to understand those answers. Mercury’s retrograde will begin on April 21, causing difficulty in communication and effort, so make yourself a note to reply to those emails on time. Like neighboring sign Leo, I would encourage you to set aside some extra time for keeping up with to-do lists and schedules. Good luck!

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 23)

It’s a season of growth and healing for you, Virgo. Mercury will enter your Seventh House of Marriage and Partnerships on March 31, bringing a new crush or some strengthened communication with a current partner. Venus, your ruling planet, will enter your Eighth House of Intimacy and Transformation on April 6, pulling you closer to loved ones and helping you to grow past something that’s been weighing you down. The Sun will then join Mercury in your Seventh House on April 14, shining a light on where you stand and feel most comfortable in your connections with others. Take some time to reflect on your journey in life thus far and allow yourself to mourn your past so that you can more fully embrace your future. 

Scorpio (Oct. 24–Nov. 21)

It’s a time of rest, Scorpio. Even if it’s only slightly more than you’ve been giving yourself thus far. Mercury will transit into your Sixth House of Health and Wellness on March 31, bringing some clarity or perhaps a diagnosis on recent health concerns and questions. The Sun will follow into your Sixth House on April 14, helping in your efforts to ease your mind and sense of self. Use this time to take extra care of your body and mind. Remember that adequate food, rest and — I know you don’t want to hear this — water are all vital for human functioning. Be nice to yourself this season.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)

This season is gearing up to be a lot of homework for you, Sagittarius. Mercury will enter your Fifth House of Education and Intellect on March 31, hopefully returning some insightful feedback or grades to help you improve before the semester is done. The Sun will follow suit on April 14, allowing your time to reflect and make valuable corrections and edits before Mercury’s retrograde on April 21 makes communication and understanding difficult to achieve. Take time to be thoughtful with your schedule and prioritize which items on your to-do list are most worth your time. Keep your chin up. You can do it!

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)

Like fellow student Sagittarius, it’s crunch-time for you, Capricorn. Mercury will enter your Fourth House of Comforts and Luxury on March 31, opening doors to a potentially cushy opportunity. Venus’s transit into your Fifth House of Education and Intellect on April 6 will show promise of high test scores and a genuine understanding of the knowledge presented … if you are willing to put in the hours, that is. Saturn, your ruling planet, will remain in your Second House of Wealth and Family throughout the year, supporting planetary movements related to those sectors as you go, but for now, you’re flying solo in regards to your education. Stay diligent. You’ll get through this!

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)

This is a great season for you to get work done, Aquarius. Mercury, ruler of communication and effort, will be entering your Third House of Communication on March 31, super-charging you for a season of clear, concise and effective negotiations. This is a great time to rally a team for a project or apply for those internships you want, allowing your ability to express your strengths, skills and needs at the top of your game. The Sun will follow suit on April 14, in preparation for Mercury’s retrograde on April 21. Use the next four weeks wisely. It could make a world of difference. 

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)

Although it is no longer your season to shine, Aries season has some gifts in store for you if you’re willing to work for them. Mercury will move into your Second House of Wealth and Family on March 31, making it a good time to call home or negotiate that raise at work you’ve been hoping for. Venus will make a short visit to your Third House of Communication on April 6, allowing your words to flow like water. This is a great time for journaling — or putting extra energy into writing your comp. You do need to finish that at some point, like it or not. Be cautious of Mercury’s retrograde starting April 21, but don’t let it stop you from completing the work you still need to do. It will all pay off in the end. I promise.
