Welcome to Aries season! The first full week of the dynamic, impulsive, fire sign — and spring — ushers us into the next chapter of the year with an exciting planetary shift and two positive, take-charge aspects.

First, on Sunday, March 21, romantic Venus follows the confident sun out of watery, romantic Pisces and into gung-ho, fast-paced Aries, coloring love, beauty, and money matters with a more playful, wide-eyed innocent vibe. You might be more inclined to make a bold, direct move on someone special, feel less inhibited pitching a creative project on the job, or spontaneously try a new hairstyle or wardrobe overhaul.

The same day, go-getter Mars in Gemini forms a harmonizing trine to taskmaster Saturn in Aquarius, amplifying focus, energy, and the ability to put your nose to the grindstone to complete a tough to-do — but ideally, you'll be able to use this fuel to plow forward on a passion project.

Tuesday, March 23 might be the bumpiest day of the week, thanks to a square between communicator Mercury in Pisces and aggressive Mars in Gemini, setting the stage for nervous, jumpy energy, impatience, and irritable moods that'll lead to harsh language and quite possibly conflict. It'll be a moment to ease off the gas, slow down, and think before you act or speak.

Thankfully, the week closes out on a sweet, sexy note on Friday, March 26 when the bright, self-image-ruling sun and relationship-oriented Venus meet up in Aries, making this a super-sweet day for love, romance, creativity, and expressing what's in your heart.

Want to know more about how you can personally take advantage of this week's astrological highlights? Read on for your sign's weekly horoscope. (Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Your weekly highlights: Relationships 💕 and Love ❤️

Not only is it your season to shine, Aries, but while romantic Venus moves through your sign from Sunday, March 21 to Wednesday, April 14, you'll also feel like you can make pleasure a priority. Flirting and connecting with someone special — an existing partner or a new match — and having lighthearted fun with your nearest and dearest comes more easily than usual. Take advantage by being even more direct about what you need to fulfill your desires. And on Friday, March 26, the confident sun and sweet Venus pair up in your sign giving you an extra burst of self-assuredness to express what's in your heart. But you'll likely want to take action too, so pour your feels into a mushy text or plan a happy hour hike to make the most of extra evening light to connect on an especially satisfying level with someone special.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

Your weekly highlights: Career 💼 and Love ❤️

If you've been feeling like it's slow going with a particular professional project, you'll have an opp to kick your efforts into high gear on Sunday, March 21, when go-getter Mars in your second house of income forms a harmonizing trine to serious Saturn in your tenth house of career. You can really concentrate your attention on the task at hand, take it one step at a time, and come up with a stunning result that impresses higher-ups and could even lead to well-deserved recognition. And from Sunday, March 21 to Wednesday, April 14, sweet Venus' move through your twelfth house of spirituality can make for a more introspective moment in which you're not super-apt to spill all the nitty-gritty details of your love life — but that doesn't mean your desires aren't on your mind in a major way. Devoting this time to reflecting on what you really want can help you make it real in coming weeks.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Your weekly highlights: Personal Growth 💡 and Relationships 💕

Honing new skills to advance your career could sometimes feel daunting — but not on Sunday, March 21 when go-getter Mars in your sign forms a positive trine to taskmaster Saturn in your ninth house of higher learning. You'll be extra curious and capable of soaking up new information, then pouring that knowledge into a professional or personal passion project. The experience could leave you feeling truly accomplished. And from Sunday, March 21 to Wednesday, April 14, relationship-oriented Venus moves through your eleventh house of networking, making you even more of a social butterfly than you usually are. You can easily link up with both new and old connections and prove yourself to be an essential presence in a group, club, or team effort. Basically, finding your groove as a part of a communal, big-picture effort can't help but bolster your happiness now.

You'll come off as confident and ambitious, which is deserving of all the accolades heading your way. And on Monday, March 22, the intuitive moon, your ruler, forms harmonizing trines to spiritual Neptune and communicator Mercury in your ninth house of adventure, fueling your desire to daydream and explore ways to broaden your horizons.

Jumping on an eye-opening experience together — think: taking a virtual cooking class, going for a weekend drive to a nearby lake, or experimenting with a new sex toy — could bring an exciting, fun-loving energy to your bond. And on Wednesday, March 24, the emotional moon in your sign forms a friendly sextile to sexy Mars in your eleventh house of networking, turning up the volume on your ability to endear yourself to friends and colleagues. You'll feel even more popular and supported than usual, so this could be a smart moment to lead the charge on a cause close to your heart. You'll feel like your go-to teammates have your back.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

Being truly seen by your partner or a new match could actually turn out to be the hottest foreplay ever. And on Saturday, March 27, the emotional moon in your sign forms a positive trine to transformative Pluto in your fifth house of romance, amplifying your sensitivity and ability to tap into your intuition. Lean into it, and it might make for fertile ground for connecting with your S.O. or someone special on a deeper, almost psychic level.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

Your weekly highlights: Relationships 💕 and Sex 🔥

One-on-one time with your sweetheart, a new app match, or even your closest friend could feel like even more of a priority than usual (which is definitely saying something) while romantic Venus, your ruling planet, moves through your seventh house of partnership from Sunday, March 21 to Wednesday, April 14.

Also on Sunday, March 21, go-getter Mars in your ninth house of adventure forms a harmonizing trine to serious Saturn in your fifth house of romance, and while it might sound counterintuitive, you'll be feeling extra committed to letting go of your usual routine in an effort to have fun and play.

The key will be simple, everyday, sustainable tweaks that end up benefiting your body — and your heart. And on Sunday, March 21, go-getter Mars, one of your co-rulers, in your eighth house of emotional bonds and sexual intimacy, forms a harmonizing trine to serious Saturn in your fourth house of home life, and having a big talk with your S.O. or a new match might actually happen more organically than you imagined.
