Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)

Happy birthday, Pisces! Be sure to circle March 17 on the calendar, because the new moon in your sign has you doing quite a bit of self-reflection. You may be inspired to take your fitness routine to the next level. Think adding in an activity that bolsters your mental and physical wellness (like swimming or yoga nidra). Reach out to loved ones for support, whether that's with child care or emotional support. And from March 22 to April 15, while communicator Mercury is retrograde in your second house of income, go back over details related to your cash flow. Revising your budget or a savings plan is sure to pay off.

Aries (Mar. 21–Apr. 19)

You'll do well to spend some time reflecting on your big picture goals around March 17 when the new moon is in your twelfth house of spirituality. With a strategic, well-laid plan, you'll turn that dream into a reality. And you'll get a burst of gung-ho energy while the confident sun is in your sign from March 20 to April 19. You may be tempted to put it toward volunteering at your L.O.'s school or getting more organized at home, but carving out time for self-care (think going for a meditative hike or run) can have you feeling all-around awesome.

And around March 31, when the full moon is in your sixth house of health, you'll start to find that all your hard work on that clean eating or exercise program is paying off.

You could be inspired to take bold action to hit a professional goal around March 17, because the new moon will be in your tenth house of career. Pitching higher-ups, applying for a new gig, or even spending time on your favorite hobby has you feeling confident and could easily set the foundation for future success. And consider booking a sitter around March 31, so you can enjoy a date night with your S.O. or a potential partner.

This can be particularly maddening to you, as you take so much pride in your work, but do your best to lean on laughter and deep breaths to keep your cool. You've got this! And around March 31, the full moon in your fourth house of home life may push you to confront a challenging, emotional situation involving your partner or L.O. Being open and honest about how you feel allows you to heal and move forward.

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)

Because you tend to dream of being the lead in your own romantic fairy tale, you're sure to enjoy the energy of March 17's new moon in your eighth house of sexual and emotional bonds. Being open about how you feel and what you desire (maybe that big first night away from the L.O.!) with the object of your affection now can set the stage for magical, reverberating results. Whoo! And while the sun is in your ninth house of adventure, from March 20 to April 19, you'll be inspired to get out of your comfort zone (think spending an afternoon at a climbing gym with the kids or even planning a long-distance trip!).

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

An old conflict with your partner or another loved one may resurface from March 22 to April 15 while communicator Mercury is retrograde in your eighth house of sexual and emotional bonds. You may feel like you're speaking different languages initially, so you'll do well to exercise patience. This can lead you to a solution that offers lasting healing. And you may have to tackle a challenging situation related to your cash flow or day job around March 31 when the full moon is in your second house of income. A diplomatic but direct conversation with a higher-up or financial planner allows you to get to the bottom of the issue.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You and your S.O. or a close friend may need to go back to the drawing board to hit a shared goal from March 22 to April 15. (It could be anything from planning for your L.O.'s summer camp to researching a move.) Communicator Mercury will be retrograde in your seventh house of partnership, requiring that you focus on tying up loose ends in order to ultimately move forward. And you may feel like you're in a flow with your fitness routine around March 31 when the full moon is in your sign. Give yourself a pat on the back, then meditate on where you want to go from here!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Whether you've been wanting to try a new restaurant or check out a museum exhibit with your partner or a close friend, consider a child care plan for March 17 (give or take four days), as a new moon in your fifth house is sure to boost romantic and creative energy. Time with your L.O.s should be even more carefree and fun, too! Then, thanks to communicator Mercury's retrograde in your sixth house of health from March 22 to April 15, you'll want to revisit a previously tried-and-true wellness plan (be it a workout routine or mind-body practice, like meditation or acupuncture). Give it another shot, and you may really hit your stride!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You can look forward to March 17, thanks to a new moon in your fourth house of family life. You'll have a special opportunity to start new tradition with your partner, L.O., and maybe even extended family. Whether that's having a family reunion, going on a road trip, or simply spending time together close to home, you're sure to make memories to cherish! And around March 31, the full moon in your eleventh house of networking, a group effort (think raising money for charity or a team project at work) pays off. You're motivated to think ahead, but celebrating with your colleagues makes for team-building—not to mention an enjoyable time!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You may find yourself frustrated during interactions with your partner, kid, or other relatives while communicator Mercury is retrograde in your fourth house of home life from March 22 to April 15. It could feel like loved ones are not only speaking another language but drudging up emotional issues that you thought you had previously addressed. Sure, you'll be tempted to lose your cool, but working together to get to the bottom of any conflict can offer long-term solutions. And around March 31, when the full moon is in your tenth house of career, you'll be better able to envision a game plan for achieving a next-level professional goal. Go for it!

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)

You'll do well to make a play for a promotion or an exciting new side hustle around March 15 when the new moon is in your second house of income. A creative, passionate pitch will be what seals the deal! And glitchy technology and misunderstandings could add stress you definitely don't need from March 22 to April 15, given information-gathering planet Mercury's retrograde in your third house of communication. For that reason, don't hesitate to do whatever you need to do to feel centered, be it chatting with your BFF over wine or getting child care so you can hit up that hot yoga class.
