Pisces - 19 Feb to 20 Mar
Many Pisceans may feel as if this month is going to pass them by in a rush. Many changes will come and go in March, you must be prepared for those that will stay and affect your life in the long term. These aren’t bad changes, but they can be very jarring with how suddenly they may come. There is a high chance you may wish to move closer to loved ones. You will need their support more and be more content in what is familiar to you. The unknown is a bit scary to you now, but don’t be afraid to step out of your shell. This could also mean being more adventurous when it comes to bedroom activities, whether it’s trying out new positions or toys.
Aries - 21 Mar to 20 Apr
Mercury retrogrades from the 5th to the 28th of this month. What this means is that a majority of this month is a time where you should step back and reflect on your relationships. The stress and tension of work may carry over into your home life. Communication is something that may be especially halted this month. Misunderstandings, arguments or conflicts can arise in verbal conversations. It may be worth while to find alternative methods to actively and honestly communicate with one another. This is also not a good time to try something new in sex because all the pent-up frustrations won’t make it enjoyable. Always count to 10 before speaking hastily. Long distance or new relationships may especially feel the strain.
Taurus - 20 Apr to 21 May
Many Taurians feel restless and flighty when it comes to relationships, both old and new. For couples, you may feel as if there’s an endless number of things to be done. And your restless spirit may not have the energy, but you will push yourself anyway. Similarly, single Taurians feel a desire to progress or pursue relationships, but it is more as a way to spend your energy rather than for the sake of the relationship itself. This could mean you’re looking for hook-ups or casual relationships as opposed to committed relationships. As much as you want company, you push them away just as much this month. This is the time to step back and take more time for yourself.
Gemini - 21 May to 20 Jun
The confusion in your work life may spill over to your social and love life. You may feel that there is a sudden gap or wall between you and your loved ones. This is entirely normal and will eventually pass. Right now, you need some time to yourself to sort out your thoughts and working life. You may not have the energy to be the most friendly or open to others right now. Just ensure that you are upfront and honest about it. Be blunt when you say you need some time to yourself and that it is not anyone’s fault for that. Keeping that healthy distance will help avoid conflicts or potential arguments this month. Because you’re not in the mood for anything intimate, you might prefer quickies.
Cancer - 21 Jun to 20 Jul
Cancerians may still feel a strong pull to seek out relationships or affection from your loved ones this month. Unfortunately, like many other signs, you find that much of your time is taken up by work or your professional life. This can put a dampener on your mood and make it hard to seek out romance as actively as you usually do. Loved ones may also feel the absence of your usual affections. This may not be a good time for couples, but it is a good time for you both to develop your own individuality. Talk to one another and make sure that you both understand this is a busy time for both of you. Consider rescheduling plans. The lack of interaction may also have an impact on your intimate life, but it’s better to wait things out rather than have sex for the sake of having it because no one will end up enjoying themselves.
Leo - 21 Jul to 21 Aug
Like many other signs, Leos may face some trouble in spending time with their loved ones. Conflicts concerning children, finance or household decisions might happen this month. Fortunately, Leo is also one of the few signs that can still find affection in between busy schedules and petty arguments. This could be in the form of quickies in the shower or before work, or lazy positions. The problem is that Leo, as a proud sign, may find trouble admitting that they need these affections. Leos may be afraid of showing their vulnerabilities and can be reluctant to be completely honest and open to their partners. Now is the time to lay down your sword and shield though. Learn to let down your walls and trust your loved ones. Remember these are people who care about you.
Virgo - 22 Aug to 22 Sept
This March, Virgos may find some worth in old flames or old friends. This is a time of reconnection, mainly because you may find you can communicate with older friends better than new ones. Communication was a major aspect of last month, which continues on in this month. Luckily, this is starting to die down, but you still have to get through the usual misunderstandings and arguments. It is up to Virgoans to clear the air of any conflicts lasting from last month. Turning to nostalgic moments of better times can aid in this; consider revisiting the site of your first date with your partner. Take them somewhere where you both have memories you can rekindle together. Remember: things don’t always have to get physical for you to make an emotional connection.
Libra - 23 Sept to 22 Oct
With Mercury’s retrograde, many signs may feel some conflict or hostility when it comes to their relationships with others. While Librarians will still feel some of these effects, your positive, sociable and charming nature helps to mitigate the worst of these. Still, expect small arguments or conflicts to crop up, whether in the bedroom or outside. Understand that other signs may feel the brunt of Mercury’s retrograde more seriously and may not be as open to social interactions. Instead, as others take time to sort out their issues, this is a good time for you to look at yourself and how you respond to others. How do you handle hostility or aggression from others? Is it healthy the way you currently handle it? Is there anything you can change for yourself?
Scorpio - 23 Oct to 22 Nov
Scorpios were likely more focused on themselves and getting their priorities in order last month. Thus, they may feel a bit out of the loop coming back into a relationship, whether new or old. You may feel anxious or nervous, but remember that conflicts will only come about if you pursue them. Try to reach an agreement with your partner for this month, where you both focus on loving each other, and put off any major decisions—including sex, if either of you want to wait—until after this period is over. Be honest with your affections and make sure that you are always there for each other. This can be a good time for you to bond with one another and grow your relationship through a difficult time.
Sagittarius - 23 Nov to 20 Dec
Sagittarians might want to steer clear of romance this month. After the high of romance and passions from last month, you may feel your moods changing like a switch. Stress and tension from work can spill into your love life, leaving you less than open to affections or romantic getaways. It is not a bad time to spend some time with yourself. Keep communication lines open, but understand you will make much more progress if you take this as a period of self-reflection and internal growth. Avoid making any major decisions now in romance. If you absolutely have to decide now, think long and hard about the consequences of your decisions and if you are ready to accept them.
Capricorn - 21 Dec to 19 Jan
Relationships can become strained this month. Capricorns may feel tensions with both their loved ones and family members. Some Capricorns may feel as if there are unspoken secrets between you and your partner—maybe he wants to try something in the bedroom but doesn’t know how to broach the topic. Even Capricorns in new relationships may feel paranoid about their partner having a roving eye. The best way around this is direct and clear honesty. Don’t be afraid to talk to your loved one. Be open with your feelings and worries this month. You will feel much better if you learn to share a bit of the burden on your shoulders. Learn to keep channels of communication clear and establish rules around honesty and sincerity.
Aquarius - 20 Jan to 18 Feb
Get ready for some positive changes to your love life. New developments or decisions may be made within your family or by yourself. Aquarians living with their parents may start considering more independent living, especially when it starts to interfere with your intimate life. New people may enter your life and help you open your eyes up to new perspectives. Change, as it does, brings about some conflicts, but these will be small and won’t get in the way of the greater positivity and potential brought into your life. Be open to these changes and embrace them as they come. You are all about being unique and these changes will be just as unique and wonderful as you are. This is a promising time for spiritually charged Aquarians.
