Your Weekly Horoscope: March 31 to April 6, 2024

Weekly Horoscope March 31 to April 6, 2024

Welcome to the eclipse vortex, the hazy period between eclipses when things really start to get weird. This is a time when clarity seems elusive, and the energetic rhythms fluctuate unpredictably. Last week's lunar eclipse in Libra was the ending of a character-changing emotional cycle you've been unraveling since last fall, and now, with the upcoming total solar eclipse in Aries on April 8, 2024, it's time to release your anger, make peace with the past so you can look forward to the future. But before we get there, this week's astrology cautions you to take your time with the story, or you could quickly lose the plot.

Mercury stations retrograde in Aries on Monday, April 1, 2024, and it's a time that demands our utmost caution. For the next month, communication planet Mercury will be in the retrograde zone, and the rules of polite society may shift. Aries, known for directness and a willingness to tackle challenges head-on, adds an extra edge to the situation. During Mercury retrograde in Aries, our impulsive and careless words can inadvertently offend or upset others. Think before you speak, and be mindful of your audience! Mercury also governs our ability to process information and make decisions–so avoid finalizing important details or making new plans until Mercury retrograde ends on April 25, 2024.

Venus enters Aries on Thursday, April 4, 2024, and it's a celestial reminder to prioritize self-love. Venus in Aries brings a fiery and assertive energy to the air, urging us to pursue our desires with passion and courage. However, during eclipse season, the planetary energies are intensified, leading to heightened emotions and dramatics in matters of the heart. With Mercury retrograde also settled in the sign of Aries, the next few weeks bring about hidden information and revelations, prompting us to reevaluate our relationships and values. When you feel the need to rush ahead this week, remember that thoughtful choices and self-love will guide you better than impulsive actions. Take your time, and make thoughtful choices. Otherwise, you'll be cosmic-ly circling back to square one.

Important Astrological Dates This Week

For those of you who like to write everything in your calendar ahead of time – these are the dates you'll want to keep an eye on this week.

  • April 1, 2024: Mercury retrograde in Aries

  • April 4, 2024: Venus enters Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19)

Aries, the energy might be off this week, but the message for you couldn't be clearer: stop putting up with anything you don't want to do anymore. Mercury retrograde and Venus are both influencing your sphere of self-image and identity. Now's your chance to completely reinvent yourself from the inside out. Think bigger than switching up your style; this is a time to signal to other people that you hold yourself in high value, and as a result, you're demanding more out of your personal connections. Just be mindful not to let your confidence morph into arrogance–or someone might try and check your attitude. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Taurus, you've been delving into a health and wellness journey lately, spurred on by the eclipses pushing you out of your comfort zone. And while you've made some progress, this week, Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries are forcing you to admit when you still need to be mindful of where you place your energy and what it's given to. As a sign obsessed with resources, you still have trouble understanding the importance of taking care of your most important asset: your health. All your usual routines and rituals are up for review. Cut ties with what's derailing you and find a new way to harness your focus. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

That friendship drama from the last eclipse cycle could spin back into your life this week, Gemini, but it's not what you expect. With Mercury retrograde in the mix, you may uncover fresh insights about an old friend or social circle you once belonged to, reinforcing your decision to distance yourself. Or you could hear directly from the source when someone you blocked on your phone or social media finds a workaround and contacts you. While responding might be tempting, you should give yourself time to process. You don't need whatever drama opening this Pandora's Box will bring. Leave the lid closed (for now). Read your monthly horoscope here.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week, Cancer, you might feel emotionally drained and frustrated, courtesy of the eclipse frenzy, with your chart ruler, the moon, right in the thick of it all. Prepare for another curveball when Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries cause your manifestations to come to fruition, but maybe not as expected. You might feel the urge to snap or express your displeasure loudly and vocally, but you'll get farther with a bit of patience. This week is the first big pressure test of how you handle this level of success; don't let the little issues keep you from rising to the occasion. Remember, these problems are temporary. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Leo, you're trying to distract yourself and find outlets for all this excess energy you have, which could lead to a breakthrough new idea or inspiration to strike you. You might feel the urge to move right to the next step, send in that application, or take a leap of faith, but Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries guide you to do a little research first instead. You might find an opportunity that better aligns with your needs or offers better financial stability. This week is also a great time to find money or opportunities in unexpected places–so send out those scholarships, artist residency applications, and grant requests. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If you're not careful, Virgo, this week could be humbling. Your chart ruler, Mercury, begins its retrograde journey in Aries on Monday, potentially clouding your judgment with ego-driven challenges in the coming weeks. You've been nurturing your romantic bonds and refining your boundaries lately. However, the alignment of Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries makes it easy to assume you're the only one dealing with baggage. It's important to give others the same understanding you're seeking for yourself. Take a moment to consider their boundaries and expectations, too; it's key to building lasting connections. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22)

Last week, Libra, you mastered the art of letting go, but eclipse season may leave you feeling somewhat disconnected socially. The traditional approaches to dating and forming adult friendships feel outdated, forced, and exhausting. With Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries lighting up your sphere of romance and desire, now's the time to rethink what brings you pleasure and accept it when and how it shows up. The cosmic alignment of the stars this week is helping you in finding balance in the energy you invest in relationships. Let go of attachment to outcomes and make joy your guiding principle. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Scorpio, last week's eclipse may have left you frustrated and spiritually drained. However, with Mercury retrograde and Venus moving into Aries, you can inject new life into your daily routines. You're emerging from a challenging period that tested your stability or posed financial struggles, finding stability within yourself or liberating yourself from concerns, no longer burdened by worries. Now that you're clear on what you will and won't accept moving forward, this alignment allows you to eliminate stagnation and replace it with innovative thinking. The answers you seek arrive on the April 8 eclipse. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Sagittarius, you finally understand that playing the clown and not being yourself only benefits others. Now, with Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries highlighting your sphere of creativity and self-confidence, you might encounter some challenges or pushback to your new rules of engagement. You're about to discover that some people only liked hanging out with you when you dulled your shine. Now that you're done pretending, so are they. It's time for a relationship reevaluation; some dynamics need to change. Pay attention as karmic cycles close themselves out; it might hurt, but it'll be worth it. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Capricorn, your words carry weight, so watch what you say (and how you say it) when disagreeing with people this week. Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries could have you experiencing conflict with family or coworkers, likely because of you not approving of how something was handled. You might not feel like you have people's respect, but your disapproval stings when wielded carelessly. Try to take all the anger and disappointment you feel about the problem and release it to the stars. If you don't remind yourself to keep your cool, it could be a friend or loved one on the other end of your venom. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you're experiencing a sense of deja vu this week, Aquarius, it's likely due to Mercury retrograde throwing you for a time-loop. Embrace this period as an opportunity to revisit past conversations and reassess information you've been pondering. The dreams you've been having since the lunar eclipse in Libra are a powerful sign of what's to come next. Consider contacting your guides for clarity if you need more details. You might not get the answer you want, but persistence in seeking clarity will eventually lead you to the truth. Read your monthly horoscope here.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Money, money, money—it must be funny not to have to worry about the value of a dollar, huh, Pisces? Unfortunately, that's not what's written in the stars for you this week, as Mercury retrograde and Venus in Aries bring a period of reflection and reassessment regarding finances, values, and self-worth. For the next few weeks, you'd be wise to be extra cautious with money and avoid making impulsive purchases or investments, as there could be unexpected future expenses or financial setbacks that require your attention. Read your monthly horoscope here.
