This week, we need to get our ducks in a row no mat­ter how dis­tracted we feel by world events and the im­mi­nent ar­rival of spring­time. It re­ally helps if we get or­ga­nized be­fore Mer­cury ret­ro­grades on Wed­nes­day, March 30. We have to stop cre­at­ing new work and clean up and re­fine what we’ve al­ready be­gun.

Don’t be dis­cour­aged by an ap­par­ent stale­mate on busi­ness or po­lit­i­cal is­sues; things look as if they are in a stand­off, but events may ac­tu­ally sig­nal a shift in direc­tion and in who holds the power as Jupiter op­poses Saturn this week. Be per­sis­tent and pa­tient to­ward any on­go­ing process that feels im­por­tant, and de­pri­or­i­tize the rest. Life may feel full of ob­sta­cles, but work done now can build a solid foun­da­tion.

The week­end be­gins in a so­cia­ble mood, and then we knuckle down to work. It’s hard to get started on chores, but once we’re mov­ing, we can mo­tor along ef­fi­ciently un­der a Capricorn moon. No­tice a will­ful push, and watch for a use of force that brings ques­tion­able re­sults. In­stead of be­ing sus­pi­cious, re­spond with guarded op­ti­mism, but keep your eyes open. Train rather than test one an­other.

Venus joins Mars in eas­ily over­whelmed Pisces on Sun­day and soft­ens our hearts. We may feel un­usu­ally sen­si­tive but open-hearted. In­ti­mate re­la­tion­ships take on an ex­tra shim­mer. We are eas­ily hurt by a care­less word and af­fected by a sweet smile or soft ca­ress. Through early next week, we need to trust some­one we wouldn’t nor­mally trust or feel pushed to work with some­one un­usual.

Early in the week, we may feel revved up but also like we are tread­ing wa­ter. A col­lab­o­ra­tive vibe helps. Wa­ter and wa­ter-qual­ity prob­lems need to be ad­dressed; mis­in­for­ma­tion pre­vents us from main­tain­ing fo­cus as Jupiter chal­lenges Nep­tune.

Mid­week brings out our in­ner un­der­dog as Mer­cury ret­ro­grades and the moon en­ters Pisces, high­light­ing our vul­ner­a­bil­ity. Take care of al­ler­gies and look around for those who need help. It’s time to speak from the heart, not from the head. Lean upon one an­other, and re­mem­ber that we’re all in this to­gether.

Fri­day, March 25:

We feel our con­nec­tion to the nat­u­ral world, whether in sick­ness or in health. Af­ter an ac­ci­dent-prone morn­ing, the af­ter­noon is co­op­er­a­tive. The vibe grows con­trol­ling later as the moon en­ters Capricorn. Get or­ga­nized early, and seek change later on.

Satur­day, March 26:

Mid­day is pro­duc­tive. Work hard to achieve per­sonal goals, but avoid ma­nip­u­lat­ing oth­ers. Let ex­is­ten­tial home­sick­ness wash away as the moon con­juncts Pluto. Tonight, com­bine arts and good causes or reach out heart-to-heart as Venus con­juncts Nep­tune.

Sun­day, March 27:

Stay away from un­pro­duc­tive po­lit­i­cal de­bate as the moon squares Jupiter and Saturn. We feel com­pas­sion­ate as Venus en­ters Pisces later in the day. Avoid er­ratic think­ing around din­ner­time.

Mon­day, March 28:

We wake up to some tough re­al­i­ties as the sun squares Pluto. Check moods be­fore lean­ing on any­one. Don’t count on luck — put ef­fort where it’s needed, and the way be­comes clear.

Tues­day, March 29:

To­day, con­ver­sa­tion runs at cross pur­poses be­cause peo­ple are dis­tracted, not un­car­ing. Use stub­born­ness to ac­com­plish things.

Wed­nes­day, March 30:

Re­flexes are slow to­day. Ca­ma­raderie counts — we re­mem­ber who helps us and who adds to our bur­dens.

Thurs­day, March 31:

Make the best of ev­ery sit­u­a­tion. If some­thing is truly im­por­tant, fol­low through doggedly; post­pone all other lo­gis­ti­cal deal­ings for a while.
