Aries (March 21st to April 19th)


#MeTime: Your stress levels may be up during this first full week of Mars making his retrograde “moon walk.” This means that you may have trouble fully trusting your impulses. You might also be feelin’ frustrated at times for no clear reason. (And sometimes the reason is very clear, but hard to get around or move.) Stay active, but slow down and think before you act.  It’s also a good time to retrace your steps on something you started near the end of last year or beginning of this year, like your workout perhaps.

#Heartstrings:  With Mars about to do a tango with a really strong Venus in the ebony sky, you definitely are feelin’ hot. But you gotta be careful not to be a bother. This is where the delicate (and perhaps) lost art of diplomacy or seduction (depending on who we’re talking about) may need to come into play.  If you are determined to have your way whichever you can, then you’re likely not to get it now.  You don’t get yours by forcing or fencing words. You get yours by creating options, making your option all the more attractive.

#MoneyMoves: Stay on top of your budget and resist the urge to splurge too much.  A lot of people, men and women alike, use “shopping therapy” when they’re stressed. But be careful now as you might overlook things with your finances more than usual.  This is more likely to happen at the end of the week than the beginning, so wait until the weekend to go all out for stuff.  And even then, going all out means loosening the budget, not throwing it out the window.  Career-wise, spend a little extra time sharpening up your skills like working with a software program you use daily.
