It's true: Your zodiac sign offers insight into plenty of random moments in your everyday life — from how you can best tackle your toddler's worst tantrums to identifying your career goals. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put what's going on up in the sky to work for them and score even more bliss and balance in your day-to-day. Here's your weekly parenting horoscope for March 28-April 2.
Last week, the sun's move into Aries marked the spring equinox and a whole new cycle of growth. And if that didn't motivate you to get out of that winter funk, embrace new beginnings, and move forward with big projects and plans, you'll be all about it this week, thanks to Monday's fiery new moon, also in Aries. Now's the time to go with your gut and get gung-ho about any super-ambitious dream. Time to get yours, my friends.
On Wednesday, communicator Mercury (currently in Aries as well) forms a positive angle to taskmaster Saturn in Sagittarius, and you'll be more able to articulate your thoughts and feelings in a way that helps you tackle even the most challenging tasks. And on Sunday, Venus, which is still retrograde, moves from Aries (where it generally struggles to fully shine with all of its romantic, artistic, beauty-loving energy) back into Pisces. This will make it at least slightly easier to be empathic and get intimate in our romantic relationships, but matters of the heart may still be a bit rocky 'til the planet turns direct on April 15.
Read more below to find out what this week's forecast means for your sign.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
If you've wanted to set a treat-your-body-less-like-crap goal (like starting that yoga challenge or drinking more water while breastfeeding) but felt like it just hasn't been the right time, consider taking even a small step around Monday, when the new moon is in your sign. You'll have both the vision and the burst of energy to go after whatever it is you're feeling totally psyched about.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Making plans with old friends may come easily after Sunday when social Venus backs up into your eleventh house of networking, where it remains until April 28. Whether you're chatting about someone's first Tinder date or trading notes about your cranky toddlers, the time spent with likeminded friends could offer well-deserved rest. Not to mention, it's sure to strengthen your bonds.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You and your partner or a potential S.O. may find yourself faced with an seemingly epic disagreement on Thursday when big picture Jupiter in your fifth house of romance forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your eighth house of sexual intimacy (which, Astrology.com noted, "speaks to what our relationships will bring us and how we can get the most out of them," which means this week might not be the night for a quickie on the couch after bedtime). Stressed by the daily grind with the kid(s) and work, you could struggle to remain diplomatic, which isn't going to go over well. Do your best to take a step back, inhale, and then come back to the table.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Around Monday, when the new moon is in your tenth house of career, you'll do well to nail down that professional goal you've been mulling about. You may be overwhelmed and feel like you need extra support with the kids in order to come up with and enact a solid step-by-step plan. Just know that a bit of inspiration paired with drive goes a long way. Do whatever you can, at whatever pace you can right now, and it'll happen.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Finding time to connect with your partner — or, if you're single, a potential partner — could feel less challenging once romantic Venus moves back into your eighth house of sexual intimacy on Sunday, where it remains until April 28. Take advantage by getting a sitter on the calendar well in advance — and maybe building anticipation with flirty texts. By the time you're one-on-one, you're going to feel like your bodies are on freakin' fire.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
If you've been feeling resistant to talking to your partner or loved one about a challenging issue (like how you've been communicating since the baby arrived), consider going there on Wednesday. That's when communicator Mercury in your eighth house of sexual intimacy forms a positive angle to taskmaster Saturn in your fourth house of home life, and you'll be able to put what's in your heart into words that truly resonate.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
You may have to contend with a stressful situation at home (like talking to your landlord or trying to figure out if you need to move before the school year is out) on Thursday when big picture Jupiter in your sign forms a negative angle to transformative Pluto in your fourth house of family life. The good news is that whatever it is may not be as tough to deal with as you initially thought.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
If you've been feeling like there's just too much on your plate lately, and something's gotta give, consider possible solutions around Monday when the new moon is in your sixth house of routine and wellness. The vision that comes to you (maybe putting your side hustle on hold or asking a friend to host more playdates) is one you should definitely get the ball rolling on sooner rather than later. Relief is right around the corner.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Flirting with your bae or someone who could very well become a future parter comes so naturally on Wednesday when communicator Mercury in your fifth house of romance forms a positive angle to taskmaster Saturn in your sign. The intellectually-stimulating conversation feels energizing and could even have you rushing through your toddler's bedtime routine so you can get intimate ASAP. Go with the flow, and you could find the moment leads to a major long-term upshot.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Consider creating a tradition with your family (like going for a weekend hike or making a special dinner together) around Monday when the new moon is in your fourth house of home life. Not only is this is an awesome time for you to start something new together, but infusing significance into even simple activities can bring you all closer and have you feeling seriously supported all around.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
You may want to block out time to sit down and take a microscope to financial matters between Sunday and April 28, while money-conscious Venus is back in your second house of income. Your perspective now could lead you to identify creative new ways to save or make extra cash (like going on Etsy to sell those cool baby shower decorations you made for your friend). It may be slow-going, but as long as you feel psyched, go with it.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Your need to prioritize self-care could very well take center stage while social, beauty-loving Venus moves back in your sign between Sunday and April 28. Whether you're craving a wardrobe refresh, a mini-getaway with your BFF, or more one-on-one bonding time with your growing baby, doing your best to speak up about your needs will have you feeling like a calmer, seriously badass mom.
