Your Horoscope This Week: 6th March to 12th March, 2022

·11-min read


It’s the second week of March and the Sun shines on under the stars of Pisces, bolstered by Jupiter and looking toward Neptune. Heralded as a hopeful time of possibility, we watch threats of WWIII or we live through them ourselves. Disjunctive as the messaging may seem, we know that Jupiter expands and Pisces is in the habit of dissolving boundaries. Here, we see the tenuous and integral relation between nations — across waters — here we see how one small move can intimate great destruction. Venus follows Mars under the stars of Aquarius, sometimes wearing the same face: the goddess and the god of war, of battleships and bullets. There is a story about humanity here, too, about people who offer their lives for a cause they are convinced is just. Mercury enters Pisces on the 9th, diluting the truth of the matter even further and challenging the artists and activists of the world to reinvent communication, to relay messages to each other by way of pure innovation. Meanwhile, the first quarter moon on the 10th in Gemini trines Saturn in Aquarius, working with and around boundaries to create strong secure avenues of connection. War, in any country, is a human tragedy. But, all forms of resistance are miracles. They are the birth of small new worlds.

<h2>Aries Sun & Aries Rising</h2><br>Pisces season can be a mysterious time for Aries babes. Mysterious as in full of wonder and furtive energy. Mysterious as in marked by an attraction to the inexplicable, drawn to that which lies beneath the visible world. If last week’s Pisces new moon stirred an old yearning in you, then the <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2020/06/9891128/asteroid-day-2020-astrology-meaning" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:asteroid Eros’s" class="link ">asteroid Eros’s</a> ingress into Aries on the 6th throws tinder on the flames. Eros winks back at your ruling planet Mars, in Aquarius, strolling besides Venus in the sky. There’s a sense that some kind of darkness is behind you and more than one kind of beauty lies ahead. What’s necessary now is a reframe and a rephrase. The ones you have been waiting for are already all around you. Once the words feel right, the spell is cast, and the right hearts will come to the fire.<span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Taurus Sun & Taurus Rising</h2><br>In the sky, the council of the stars gathers and reviews your case, advancing you forward with great assurance. On the ground, the road that once felt shrouded in fog begins to clear and your destination becomes clearly marked, fathomable and impending. Whatever signs you need to feel secure in your investment, the signs are there to see. All you have to do is keep moving forward as you have been moving: with an indelible faith in what the world has to offer you and what you have to offer the world. The people around you are a part of this story too, but they are not the story. They are here to teach you how to remain present. Can you indulge in the pleasure and pain that company brings you without letting that company distract you from your course?<span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Cancer Sun & Cancer Rising </h2><br>Mars and Venus are officially past the portal of Pluto and intently holding hands as they move under the stars of Aquarius toward Saturn. It should come as no surprise to you, dear one, that it’s time for Cancer people, especially Cancer risings, to <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/2022/01/10824592/money-horoscope-2022" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:talk about finances" class="link ">talk about finances</a> and get their money right. Aquarius rules Cancer rising’s house of sex and debt, while Venus rules over both love and money matters. With Mars in the mix, progress is more than possible so long as you pour your energy where it counts (the other sides of the 8th house and Venus can pose as a lovely if not escapist distraction). Meanwhile, Saturn in Aquarius keeps time on your side and reminds you that, with a bit of discipline and creative exchange, your dreams can become real and tangible. <span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Leo Sun & Leo Rising</h2><br>Well well well, if it isn’t that old B- word rising up from the ashes like a wise hag.

Knowing what your values are is key and the beginning of boundary work, especially as these planets move toward Saturn. It is, at this moment, not enough to give lip service to the kind of lover and friend you want to be. Your words must be carried by your actions and your daily commitment to yourself. Which is also the self that asks for help, that makes mistakes, and grows from them.<br><br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Virgo Sun & Virgo Rising</h2><br>With Mercury, your ruling planet, making their way into Pisces, communications with dear ones might take an unexpected turn. It is said, astrologically, that Mercury has a hard time under the stars of Pisces — meaning gets muddled and things get lost in translation. While you can do your best to safeguard against these kinds of predicaments by trying to be sparing and concise with your words, or by holding back on certain difficult conversations, things are bound to get slippery somewhere. Perhaps, then, it might be worthwhile to anticipate the rich and fertile aspect of the muddy waters — the place where you find an unorthodox way to express yourself, where something like music can stand in for the words that fail you. Let the co-presence of the Sun, Jupiter, and Neptune expand the way you relate to others and don’t worry so much about being misunderstood. Those who love you know your will is good and hold you in high regard.<span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Libra Sun & Libra Rising</h2><br>It’s not easy to parse out the difference between our emotional needs and our physical needs and it can be very hard to satisfy both. People are often raised to treat them as separate entities, which require very different kinds of care. Whether for better or for force, Pisces season takes a toll on your body and your energy levels, and you might find yourself stretched past the bounds of your comfort or safety zone. Meanwhile, on the 10th, the moon in her <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/moon-phases-meaning-astrology" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:first quarter phase" class="link ">first quarter phase</a> in Gemini could have you putting your visions in front of your physical needs. Whether this sort of edge-play with your capacity stands to expand you or teach you your limits the hard way could prove difficult to discern at first, since Mercury in Pisces has a hard time delivering important messages. It's important to listen to your body, and to trust that even when it fails you, it is wise. <br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Scorpio Sun & Scorpio Rising</h2><br>Family matters are difficult for most people, even those who claim a gentle childhood. There’s nothing easy about learning how to love a world, to see it for what it is and choose it anyway. Scorpio children are incredibly perceptive, aware of abuses of power, unspoken understandings, and difficult truths. They carry what they see within them before they are old enough to fully understand and make meaning of that understanding. Of course, Scorpio children grow into Scorpio adults that return to the table, ready to unpack what they’ve carried, to feel into the lessons that lie inside that burden. It is your right to lay your burden down, dear Scorpio, to acknowledge it for yourself, but you can’t control who is ready to sit at that table with you. Each of us has our own time; when they converge, it’s a blessing — not a given. <br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Sagittarius Sun & Sagittarius Rising</h2><br>The past week might have exhausted you spiritually and emotionally, but the rest it demanded of you was invaluable. Against all odds and adversities, there’s something about this coming week that has you feeling yourself again. In your heart, the field is widening, and a kind of forgiveness grows there, for yourself and for others. Against all insecurities, there’s an electricity to your words, like a zap that jolts you awake and inspires you to keep going. If an idea has been on low power-mode inside you, now is the time to flip the switch. Give energy and attention to what excites you, what makes you feel alive and part of a larger human conversation. Clear space in your schedule for creative experimentation and new approaches to collaboration. Invite that energy into your personal life, your love life, and the way you touch yourself. <br><br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Capricorn Sun & Capricorn Rising</h2><br>Of course Capricorns are more than the work they do but, given the flowing energy that moves between Saturn in <a href="https://www.refinery29.com/en-gb/second-house-astrology-meaning-money-horoscope" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:your second house" class="link ">your second house</a> and the first quarter moon in your sixth, it’s likely that whoever you’re becoming is showing up powerfully in your work. The astrology of this week keeps that powerful energy flowing and has you making (money) moves, even if those moves seem small in the grand scheme of things, small steps add up. It’s important that you don’t ignore your instincts in the coming days, sweet Capricorn, and don’t underestimate what you’re capable of. In fact, it might be valuable for you to take a good hard look at who has taught you to doubt your intuition and why. Wasn’t it that very doubt that set you back when what you had within you was more than enough to carry you forward?<span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>

<h2>Aquarius Sun & Aquarius Rising</h2><br><br>While the Sun shines on Pisces’ waters, blessed by Jupiter and heralded by Neptune, the odds are in your favour. The lovers (Venus) and warriors (Mars) charge the field. They are your champions, calling your name as they break ground in search of what is true. It’s time you joined them; it’s time you claimed something back of yourself and your power. Be brave, Aquarius, and believe until believing gets you there. Once, writing of Sappho, Rita Mae Brown wrote, “My voice rings down through thousands of years/ To coil around your body and give you strength/ You who have wept in direct sunlight/ Who have hungered in invisible chains/ Tremble to the cadence of my legacy: / An army of lovers shall not fail.” Sixteen years later, in 1990, ACT UP took the last line as a call to arms: <a href="https://www.versobooks.com/blogs/5106-queer-nation-manifesto-queers-read-this" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:AN ARMY OF LOVERS CANNOT LOSE" class="link ">AN ARMY OF LOVERS CANNOT LOSE</a>.

<h2>Pisces Sun & Pisces Rising</h2><br><br>Sometimes, becoming who you are means letting go of who you were raised to be. Sometimes becoming more of yourself means becoming less familiar and more strange — to those who knew you once and even (perhaps especially) to yourself. For all the grief these years have given us, haven’t they also taught us that life is tenuous and precious? Haven’t these years inside taking up odd hobbies and watching Tiger King taught us that humanity is nothing if not getting stranger? There’s a lot of talk about Jupiter in Pisces, about expansion and possibility, but an opening in the soul has no caveats. Like water making way until the crack deepens, you stretch and the whole world rushes in. Why not wait to see how deep it gets, how dark? All the selves you were are already past. Let fear be the thing that pushes you forward, since none of us are going back. <br><br><span class="copyright">ILLUSTRATION BY barbarianflower</span>
