Aries: This week is about taking a step back to look at the big picture. Your energy is running rather hot, and you have the potential to be particularly unfiltered with your words. Although you mean no harm, some folks might find this rather jarring. While March began peacefully, the vibes are beginning to amplify and they seem to be propelling you towards something big and exciting. There is a desire for your mind or your body to get ahead of one or the other. Try to keep the two synchronized or you’ll feel like a time traveler who does not recognize the place or time that they have arrived in.

Taurus: This week you get into the groove of managing your time wisely and identifying what is a worthwhile pursuit and what is not. A clear path may appear before your feet, where before you had imagined a dead end. The moon in your sign on the 16th and 17th raises your expectations and your ambitions in regards to relationships that are close to home. Be mindful of a selfish streak you may be inspired to follow through with. There are a great many things you find yourself wanting.

Gemini: The new moon on the 13th clears your head, and the rest of March is a strong month for you to roll up your sleeves and do the work.
