The astrological events this month have been low-key chaotic and, sorry to say, it isn’t over until it’s over. The good news is we’re finally out of Mars’s post-retrograde shadow period, but if things haven’t felt clear or grounded just yet, you’re not alone.
This week, you’ll want to buckle up, because your March 19 weekly horoscope is not only bringing the beginning of a brand-new astrological season, but also the end of Pluto’s 15-year-journey through Capricorn. To say it’s a big week in the cosmos would be an understatement.
To officially kick things off, Mercury will enter Aries on March 19 — just one day before the sun makes its debut in Aries. This happens on the same day as the spring equinox, also known as the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere, which is symbolic of revival, renewal, and the first spark of life after a cold and dark winter. On March 21, the moon will renew itself via zero degrees of Aries, making this new beginning all the more fertile and primal. The moon will also join forces with Jupiter the following day, adding a layer of audacity and bold enthusiasm to the mix.
Without a doubt, the highlight of the week will be when Pluto enters Aquarius on March 23. For reference, Pluto has been transiting through Capricorn since 2008, and this is the first time Pluto will visit Aquarius since the late 18th century. All that to say, this energy will bring deep transformation and revelations to themes of technology, innovation, and the future of the collective.
Later, the week comes to a close with Mars finally concluding its journey through Gemini, as it will slip into Cancer on March 25. Not going to lie: Mars isn’t necessarily thrilled to be in this cardinal water sign, but after a five-month-long transit through Gemini, change is most certainly welcome.
