It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life, from which sex position you should try to identifying your dream career goals. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly horoscope for February 27-March 5.
You already know Mercury retrograde messes with all things related to communication, transportation, and technology for three weeks at a time, and thankfully, we won't have to deal with another one of those until April 9. But on Saturday, March 4, Venus will begin its retrograde, which lasts through April 14, slowing down and throwing a wrench in matters of love, money, and beauty. In other words, Venus retrogrades are not the ideal time to ask your hair stylist for that daring new cut or color. Moneymaking-related plans may be delayed or confusing. And most of all, because Venus rules our relationships and wedding dates mark the "birth" of your marriage, it's usually best to avoid tying the knot during a retrograde.
A more positive aspect to look forward to this week? On Sunday, Mars in Aries forms a positive angle to Saturn in Sagittarius, which can fuel your efforts to be assertive or get an intimidating job done. Sweet!

Aries (March 21–April 19)
You'll get a sudden burst of confidence that makes you even more assertive in your closest relationships on Thursday when Jupiter in your seventh house of partnership opposes change-maker Uranus in your sign.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Don't worry if you start finding it extra challenging to pin down social plans from Saturday to April 14 while Venus is retrograde in your eleventh house of networking and friends.

Doing your best to go with the flow preempts stress.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You could be empowered to make a major decision about your job or child care sitch on Thursday when lucky Jupiter in your fourth house of family life opposes change-maker Uranus in your tenth house of career.

Let your intuition guide you, and you'll have a memorable, fun-filled time.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
It's time to talk to your partner or boss about that pressing money matter you've been sweeping under the rug on Thursday when lucky Jupiter in your second house of income opposes change-maker Uranus. You may be stressed about a payment that's running late or setting up that life insurance policy you aimed to get before the baby was born, but speaking up and expressing your concerns now puts your mind at ease.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
If you've been trying to figure out a new ways to better juggle time with your baby and work, consider meditating or carving out a little bit of quiet time on Wednesday.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
You may feel like flirty, out-of-the-blue fun moments with your partner or a potential partner are harder to come by once Venus begins its retrograde in your fifth house of romance on Saturday. Combined with the usual stressors related to your toddler's teething or going through the sassy threenager stage, you may want to throw your hands up.
