With Aries season off and racing, the spice is coming in hot the first half of the week. Monday through Wednesday we’re served a ‘learning opportunity’ when Mercury, Jupiter and Chiron meet up and knock the scab off an old wound. It’s the sort of weather where a seemingly flippant comment will sting more than expected. If you’re on the receiving end, dig deeper. There’s a BIG lesson here around your desire to be independent, courageous and lead, but it requires you accepting that your trigger is in fact your teacher.  Later in the week, Venus and Uranus get together and propose a physical challenge. New hair, new nails, new everything? It’s one of those rare spontaneous beauty moments where you’ll find yourself considering a septum piercing, and maybe even following through. Similarly if your living room (or bank account) can’t handle a 1stdibs.com blow out, avoid temptation – especially on Friday March 31.

Did the music get louder all of a sudden or are you just shouting to be heard? A poke wound that cuts to the core could see you getting a little overzealous in the first half of the week. Pay attention to what ticked you off, it’s almost certainly connected to something much deeper that’s worthy of a little soul-searching.

There’s some serious healing and a-ha moments to be had early in the week if you’re willing to dig deep into your subconscious. This is shadow work, journaling and lucid dreaming meditation weather…if you dare. Of course, if that sounds too hectic, enjoy a rush of spontaneous indulgence on Friday when the sky challenge you to break out of a beauty rut.

Seemingly harmless gossip could get you into hot water in the first half of the week when the sky makes it especially easy to run your mouth. Whether you’re fishing the dirt or you find yourself on the receiving end, it’s likely to trigger something from deep within worthy of a little reflection. Remember the things we find most annoying about other people are often the parts of ourselves we struggle to accept.

Overcommitting is an occupational hazard this week as Mercury, Jupiter and the sun super charge your confidence stores and nudge you to say “yes” to everything, especially at work. It’s all well and good to take on more but before you commit to double the work, do a quick check in to see  whether you’re really excited about the opportunity or you’re chasing validation.

Revisiting a place (or starting to plan a return trip) that shaped who you are (think: your hometown or the place where you first fell in love) could be hugely cathartic early this week. By Friday, look for green lights and serendipitous moments to meet with someone who could change everything, especially when it comes to your career.

Virgo and Virgo rising

Hypnosis, psychotherapy, meditation, journaling, whatever your shadow work of choice may be, the start of the week looks magnificent to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. A current situation will act as a gateway to a deep wound around your identity. Dig deep, the initial discomfort will be worth it in the long run.

Libra and Libra rising

The week kicks off with a bang as Big Aries Energy lights a match, energising you to rush into the breach to help someone close. It’s a valiant gesture but begs the question, “Am I doing this because I want to, or am I seeking approval?” On Friday, getting vulnerable with a friend has the potential to yield a surprisingly (lovely) result.

Scorpio and Scorpio rising

Enthusiasm could give way to overkill Monday through Wednesday when the sky sets the scene for some truly epic efforts – especially at the gym. The desire to go harder/faster/stronger than ever could be short sighted, *try* to stay grounded. Later in the week a delicious bolt of sensuality will take you by surprise. Slow down and savour it, it’s too good not to.

Sagittarius and Sagittarius rising

Old habits die hard Monday to Wednesday this week as the skies fire you up to make some seriously impulsive moves.  That’s good news if you’re trying to work up the courage to ask that person out, not so great if you’re trying to stay on the straight and narrow. If having a rubber arm is a risk to your overall well-being (or sobriety), avoid temptation altogether and lay low.

Capricorn and Capricorn rising

No one quite knows how to push our buttons like the ones who raised us. Sceptical? Just wait to see how the week unfolds. Flippant words from family could stir up a “do you even see me here” feeling you thought was truly behind you. But maybe if you’re prepared to dig deep, there’s some deeper learning or perspective to glean this time around.

Aquarius and Aquarius rising

After a fiery start to the week that could see you biting off more than you can chew, Wednesday onwards looks a little more fun. The skies are poised to bring unexpected spoils later in the week. If you’ve lost something previous at home, keep your eyes peeled for it to resurface in the most unlikely of places.

How’s your cart looking right now? The energy this week could easily cajole you into spending so fast you’re entitled to free shipping for life from Netaporter. Fun in the moment, no question, but do you really need it, or is it filling some other uncomfortable gap (not the sartorial kind)? Food for thought…
