Your Weekly Horoscope for March 20–26: Aries Season Begins!

March 20, 2022

Prepare for a jam-packed cosmic week! Starting on Monday, March 21, Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in Pisces, linking the mystical mind with the great benefic. Reality fuses with fantasy as this magical conjunction blurs the lines. Nobody will expect the worst when they will be hoping for the best! If anything, be mindful of tone, turf, and timing. Although intuitive and soft, this conjunction can still allude to having overly confident, if idealistic, opinions.

The following day, Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus in Taurus, causing tension between the modern warring planet and the fiscal rebellion. When Mars and Uranus clash, sparks could fly! It may spar unforeseen yet decisive action, likely leading with surprisingly fixated ambition. For some, this could be the perfect transit to explore sexual tension. However, the square could also result in a cold war, leading to a stubborn stalemate. Regardless, expect the unexpected!

Then Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, which aligns the mystical mind with the spirit realm. Dreamy yet elusive, the conjunction inspires fantastical thinking. Neptune colors Mercury’s mind with the rose-colored glasses, implying that there may be an air of illusion. Facts are no longer tried-and-true but rather subjective during this transit. Common sense could also dissipate for a more hopeful, abstracted perception. 

Finally, Mercury makes a final appearance at the very end of the week when it sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, harmonizing the mystical mind with the CEO of the underworld. Since Mercury has been swimming in its daydreams all week, Pluto’s last-minute influence can unearth the truth behind the fantasy. So, Pluto may shake down the whimsy of Mercury with stone-cold logic and common sense. With that comes the realization of how powerful the mind, perception, and words truly are. 

The Season of the Ram

The sun leaves the spirit realm for its exaltation in vivacious Aries on Sunday, March 20. Now reporting to Mars, the sun is ambitiously aggressive in all it does. This is the season to quite literally *ram* your way through life!

Instinctual and forceful, the sun in Aries holds immense combustible energy. The collective will feel more inspired to lead with impulse, resulting in antagonistic reactions. Although it can come across as aggressive, this will be perfect for rising to the occasion or attacking the problem without a second thought. As Aries season builds, so does the need to be incredibly self-sufficient. The Aries-infused solar energy sparks brash independence as we assert ourselves. After all, this is the season of “me,” so lean into a healthy expression of selfishness!

Quarterly Check-In with Luna

Similar to the first quarter moon, the last quarter moon also acts when there is a crisis. The lunation occurs in mature Capricorn, encouraging us to get a grip of our situations. Now is the time to go about each occurrence with a sense of responsibility and duty. The last quarter moon in Capricorn inspires careful editing that lets go of unnecessary details so that we can prioritize what matters.
