FEEL THAT URGE TO SPRINGCLEAN the mind, body, and politics. The plan­ets re­mind us that some­thing must go — whether it’s a fa­vorite chair, a plan, or an il­lu­sion about our self or coun­try when it no longer fits in the new re­al­ity. The most nur­tur­ing thing we can do for our life is re­lease clut­ter of all types and make space for what’s real and needed now. Cre­ate room, be­cause Mon­day’s new moon in Aries seeds a whole new as­tro­log­i­cal year.

The stars are not ask­ing us to re­lease a deep part of our moral code to fit in safely, even if we feel pres­sured to do so — nudged by this week’s plan­e­tary will­ful­ness, which is cre­ated as Mer­cury con­juncts elec­tri­cal chaotic Uranus, op­poses ex­pan­sive Jupiter, and squares in­tense Pluto. A place of res­o­lu­tion is found in Can­cer. We need to step out of con­flict, ei­ther in­side our­selves or with oth­ers, by in­ves­ti­gat­ing what will nur­ture us in the long run.

Our emo­tions stay strong and re­ac­tive through­out the week as Venus ret­ro­grades and con­juncts the sun in di­rect, ur­gent Aries. Al­though we may be low on pa­tience, our hearts can burst with love at the odd­est mo­ments. Venus ret­ro­grade en­cour­ages us to look at whether our ac­tions are in line with our val­ues. Let’s just be care­ful what we set in mo­tion.

FRI­DAY, MARCH 24: We should watch what we say as Mer­cury op­poses Jupiter this morn­ing. Ca­ma­raderie helps us re­spond to re­cent changes tonight.

SATUR­DAY, MARCH 25: Our vul­ner­a­bil­ity and brav­ery tug us in op­po­site di­rec­tions as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Pisces and the sun con­juncts emo­tional Venus. It sta­bi­lizes us to cre­ate and ex­press beauty.

SUN­DAY, MARCH 26: It’s all too easy to change our minds as men­tal Mer­cury con­juncts Uranus. We have ac­cess to un­usual flashes of bril­liance and me­chan­i­cal ge­nius but also of crazi­ness. Our minds buzz if we be­come too un­grounded. This can help re­lease ob­ses­sions, but if we are sud­denly in­spired to move to Mada­gas­car, we should run a fea­si­bil­ity study and wait a week be­fore go­ing.

MON­DAY, MARCH 27: Clear the decks as the moon wanes to­ward a new moon in Aries at 8:57 p.m. Don’t get fed up — re­view and deal with old prob­lems and pains from last year’s cy­cle. Give this re­ac­tive en­ergy a healthy place to go.

TUES­DAY, MARCH 28: The mood is feisty, hasty, and forth­right. We are se­ri­ously not in­ter­ested in be­ing told what to do. Look for new leads. If en­ergy starts and stops like the hare rac­ing the tor­toise, rest and leap again. Cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for one an­other.

WED­NES­DAY, MARCH 29: We’re still feel­ing a cuss­edly in­de­pen­dent streak this morn­ing, and we may need to get some­thing off our chests as the moon con­juncts Mer­cury. The gen­eral mood be­comes calm as the moon en­ters earthy Taurus mid­day, though our ca­pac­ity to worry in­creases. Give imag­i­na­tion a prac­ti­cal out­let and look for the truth un­der­neath anx­i­ety. Let’s be will­ing to ask our­selves and oth­ers tough ques­tions and cher­ish the truth. Con­firm all facts be­fore tweet­ing.

THURS­DAY, MARCH 30: Watch for brew­ing con­flict around ma­te­rial things as the Taurus moon con­juncts Mars mid­day. We may need to ex­press ma­jor po­lit­i­cal or strate­gic frus­tra­tions as Jupiter squares Pluto — ideas clash on what con­sti­tutes free­dom. Af­ter­noon mel­lows as a de­sire for com­fort helps us re­con­nect, but re­mem­ber and fol­low up on ear­lier con­cerns.
