Weekly Horoscope: Why Wednesday Is One Of The Most Important Days Of The Year, Astrologically Speaking
This week, the AstroTwins break down Wednesday's doozy of a day that has major astrological significance.
Psst...Wednesday is the start of Aries season AND the spring equinox AND a full moon.
Can liberty and equality coexist? This week's skies say, yes! Wednesday, March 20, marks Day One of Aries season, a monthlong cycle where no one puts baby in the corner—or in any sort of pre-defined box. The renegade Ram rips up all scripts and reminds us of the power of self-authorization, as evidenced by the trailblazers born under this Sun sign, from Lady Gaga to Maya Angelou to Nancy Pelosi.
Life imitates art between now and April 20. Well, more like an open mic night where everyone is freestyling and cutting loose. That's all well and good, but with a catch! Mercury is still retrograde until March 28, which can have the effect of turning one ad-libbed line (or ill-informed tweet) into weeks of controversy. To avoid this pitfall, save the raw material until early April. You can still be a visionary. Just present the more "grounded" thoughts from your independent archive—that you can back up with solid research. Aries season is a time for "firsts," so challenge yourself to try activities you've never done before. Be the new kid in class, purposely place yourself out of your comfort zone. Once the awkward vibes pass, you'll feel a sense of dynamism return. Hello, you well-rounded human, you! Since Aries is the fearless warrior sign, that might involve fighting for justice in your community or the world at large.
While you're "doing you" with abandon, it's important to gauge your impact on the crowds. Thankfully, Wednesday's skies will bring some much-needed checks and balances. March 20 is also the equinox—a moment on both hemispheres where day and night are of equal length. And for the first time since 1981, the equinox arrives in tandem with the Full Worm Moon. That alone is enough to spotlight our need for balance in the world, but doubling its effect is the fact that this one's a supermoon in Libra, the zodiac's peacekeeper and harmonizer. But wait, there's more! In 2019, there are two consecutive full moons in Libra, which means the call for universal love, cooperation, and equilibrium will be echoed again on April 19. How can you use your influence to signal boost someone you adore? Where might you thrive by embracing the power of partnership? Libra is the sign of the scales, reminding us that two "opposing" weights can find a healthy balance, much like the arrestingly intimate, piano-side duet of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga performing "Shallow" at the Oscars. Tongues may wag, but hey, it's Aries season—and that's part of the fun.
On Thursday, Venus and Mars will square off, and it could send some mixed signals.
Double-tap Thursday as a date to use maximum discretion, though! Cosmic co-pilots Venus and Mars will be duking it out in a tense square (90-degree angle), making it hard to read the room.
With Venus in convivial, communal Aquarius since March 1, there's been an agreeable energy afoot—one that's actually more prone to groupthink than rocking the boat, thanks to peaceful Venus softening Aquarius' edge. But feisty Mars is in value-driven Taurus, which can bring out the raging bull in us all when we feel our ethics are challenged. You may be shocked to discover that someone who's been going along to get along has been stewing in their juices...and on Thursday that volcano could erupt! If you want to get ahead of any potential conflict, call a summit and let the team weigh in on the current state of your union. But set some ground rules under this combative cosmic energy! All feedback must be constructive, one person talks at a time, and absolutely zero personal attacks.
