Your Horoscope This Week: 20th March to 26th March, 2022

·11-min read


It’s the last week of March and the beginning of Aries season with the Sun moving into Aries on the 20th and, like all things Aries, making itself known. It may be getting hot in here and somewhat warmer outside but that doesn’t mean that the days ahead are free from the occasional misty morning and spring storm. We begin the week recovering from a potent full moon in Virgo that made a trine to Pluto and surely unearthed a thing or two. Plus, the results of a square between Venus in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus on the 19th, a tense aspect could have made waves in a relationship or two, resulting in a shipwreck or a broken boundary between people and countries alike. Jupiter continues his path through Pisces, amplifying whatever transpires next while Neptune does the underwater work of giving these events a transcendent quality. Mercury in Pisces is in the mix as well, making a conjunction to Jupiter, Neptune, and the True Node in Taurus. The bad news is there's a great deal of miscommunication — perhaps even restriction with Pluto in Capricorn’s influence on the matter — but the good news is music and art have the power to not only sustain the world but to redeem it.

<h2>Taurus Sun & Taurus Rising</h2><br>Would you believe me if I told you that I spent several hours the other day trying my damnedest to figure out where the phrase “The only way out is through” originated? Many Reddit threads, JSTOR searches, errant pdfs, and possible malware links later, I’m here to tell you that some people credit a certain long-winded Robert Frost poem and others credit a stanza in the cantos of Dante’s<em> Inferno </em>(which is never ever directly linked or quoted), but no one knows for sure. What I mean is, sometimes, we go looking for information that doesn’t exist because its mysterious origin is a part of the message: The hero that turns back only loses time. There is no way to avoid suffering, no way to avoid loss, no way to protect yourself from life’s great mysteries because to be alive is to be a student. This week, take notice of the student in you. How has your position in the classroom shifted? In what ways can your learning experience be supported and improved?<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Gemini Sun & Gemini Rising</h2><br>How has <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2021/03/10364898/mercury-in-pisces-march-2021-meaning" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Mercury’s transit through Pisces" class="link ">Mercury’s transit through Pisces</a> treated you? Has it lived up to its reputation, leaving you at a loss for the right words, delicately mending the frayed ends of miscommunications? Or has it been subtler than that? Have you found yourself knocking on the door of a new language, a new way of defining yourself and your ambitions? Mercury makes a conjunction to Jupiter on the 21st, defying expectations and pushing the limits of what’s possible. A couple of days later, Mercury makes a conjunction to Neptune, and the more that you open the door, the more the world floods in, the more you flood the world. If all of your life you felt pressure to zero in, to be one thing, to choose one thing, this is a sign that you were always meant to multiply (and be fruitful)! Meanwhile, a sextile flows from Mercury to both Pluto and the North Node. The risks you take now, the boundaries you push, strengthen your roots and widen your field.<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Cancer Sun & Cancer Rising </h2><br>It’s Aries season and for Cancers and Cancer Risings especially, it’s the season of <em>work work work work</em>.

No, this is no mundane matter — although even mundane tasks have their magic potential. This is a fertile time for you, Cancer. Mars and Venus make their way through Aquarius working toward a kind of reinvention for you.

Who is it that returns night after night to fatten the list and fill your days with mundane concerns? Hopefully there's pleasure in it for that person. Hopefully, the one who makes the list puts themselves on it so that they don’t forget that they are themselves an important task. It’s a sacred thing after all, the task of simply being yourself in a quiet space, of filling the space around you with presence, of noticing the negative space you attract. Aries season ushers in a heavy focus on your relationships and it has its reasons. But don’t let your commitment to other people be the reason you bump yourself down your own list. The list only gets longer, and you’re the only one who can keep you at the top.<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Scorpio Sun & Scorpio Rising</h2><br>You might not feel it now, but Buffy Sainte-Marie was singing about times like these when she sang “God is alive; Magic is afoot.” Well, you don’t have to believe in God or even the divine to believe that magic is real, not if you’re reading these horoscopes anyway. Anyone with their ear to the ground and their heart open wide can acknowledge that these are dark times. But, what if these are also the brightest times? The most fertile? The most hopeful? While Mars is your traditional ruler, your intimacy with Pluto has taught you well enough that darkness is nothing new. Each year we are alive, the veil between the image of the world we created and the reality of it slips a little further down. What’s unveiled is difficult to bear but what’s unveiled begs for witness and repair. The moon in Capricorn on the 25th invites you to pick up your own magic, the kind you thought had fallen from you, the kind that’s been growing stronger all this time.<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Sagittarius Sun & Sagittarius Rising</h2><br>There’s something promising about the beginning of Aries season for Sagittarians and Sag Risings alike. Something fiery, excitable, and self-sustaining, like all one needs to do is strike a match.

Of course, too much energy can feel like an overwhelm and quickly lead to burn out, so take your time, Sagittarius, and be intentional. Let the third-quarter moon in Capricorn on the 25th remind you that you have worked hard to get where you are and there’s no better way to celebrate the security you’ve earned than to take a delicious risk or two.<br>

<h2>Capricorn Sun & Capricorn Rising</h2><br>Once, I shared a meme to my Insta that cast Capricorns as people who deeply appreciate anyone who lets them be both baby and daddy at the same time. Never have so many Capricorns messaged me back claiming to feel affirmed. It would only make sense that Capricorns want and need to be babied since so many appear to age backwards, loosening their adherence to structure as they age. Perhaps Capricorns have an irreverent desire to be in control of their own playfulness, to be like a child when there’s no one to restrict their exploration and they have become their own charge. With the Sun shifting under the stars of Aries and a third-quarter moon in Capricorn this week, do your best to give the baby in you time to make demands and give loved ones the opportunity to meet those demands with patience and with love. You might be surprised to find that letting yourself be small is a big part of knowing you are powerful.<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>

<h2>Pisces Sun & Pisces Rising</h2><br>The birthday celebrations might be behind you, gentle one, but the stars are far from done with you. Jupiter presses his influence upon you, testing your boundaries, teaching you how to identify your limits and how to push past your own limitations. Beside him and beneath him, Neptune does his subliminal work, connecting you with your subconscious drives and giving them space to make themselves known. Mercury mediates, working hard to interpret what comes up. It’s important to allow meaning to arrive in whatever form feels right, even if it’s not a form legible to others. What matters is that you are legible to yourself, what matters is your commitment to feeling your own feelings first so that you might discern them from those of others. Defiant in your empathy, try to remember that the work these planets are doing on you is unavoidable. Avoidance itself becomes just one more approach with its own consequences.<span class="copyright">BARBARIANFLOWER</span>
