On March 30 Venus in Aries will be sextile Saturn, bringing to the forefront matters of love and leadership, and how personal interests may or may not hinder us in our professional pursuits. When Venus, ruler of love and beauty, flirts with solemn and responsible Saturn, you can expect sparks to fly and traditions to be challenged. Keep reading to see how your sun sign will fare during this cosmic opposites-attract interaction.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your personal relationships have more or less taken a backseat to work and financial obligations, leaving you unsure about the state of certain friendships and romances. Add to this the more severe frictions and fallouts of recent months and you’re probably wary of even entertaining a possible connection. As you hit your Aries stride on March 21 you’ll receive a considerable confidence boost, with workmanlike Saturn’s brush-up against Venus assuring you that a little fun won’t undo all your hard work.
As one who is ruled by Venus but nonetheless beholden to their earth element, you’re more than familiar with the struggle to balance pleasure with responsibility. The affectionate, comfort-loving bull not only works to keep the roof over their head, but indulge in and, more importantly, share all their favorite creature comforts. This generosity is your strength, Taurus; keep that energy going while you move into your own natal season.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The fast-moving twins are pros at multitasking, right down to their relationships. No one can juggle jobs and people better than a Gemini, and with your own astrological season just a few months away you’re definitely feeling your stride after a period of stagnation. That said, slow down this month and especially on the 30th, or you could miss something–or someone–you’ve been waiting a lifetime for.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Venus doesn’t just preside over romantic relationships but friendships as well, and you’ve got a problematic one in your corner, Cancer. While all three water signs get their (un)fair share of abuse due to their sensitive and accepting nature, it’s only a matter of time before Scorpio lashes out and Pisces swims away; you, however, prefer to stick things out to their ugly end in hopes of a sea change. Don’t wait until a toxic frenemy has cracked your shell beyond repair.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The sun-ruled lion hates living in the shade or, more acutely, out of the spotlight. But this is exactly what you’ve been doing, Leo: keeping your head down, going to work, and biding your time before making a grand reentry. Father figure Saturn may be stodgy and old-fashioned, but keeping your head down just a little while longer could prove to be the winning move. It’s easy to be tempted into a premature limelight, but a true star like you knows better.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
While fellow Mercury-ruled Gemini often gets the planetary shout-out, you carry your Mercurial influences differently. You may not possess the social butterfly tendencies of the twins but you’re just as keen to kick back and enjoy yourself when work demands cut into your relationships and threaten to isolate you from the outside world. Now is the time to get off the clock, Virgo, and check in with those who have missed you in your absence.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Is there anything more Libran than the goddess of love and beauty tweaking the nose of stoic old Saturn on the 30th? Like Samantha from Betwitched, you take a giggly kind of joy in spreading a little magic around the lives of the rigid and uptight. Needless to say, this is your moment to cast off any doubts or insecurities about the transformations you’ve undergone and get yourself seen, Libra. Of course there will be naysayers and critics, but what do you care? You were born to challenge the status quo in style.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Your heart has certainly been heavy in recent months, and you’re not quite sure where the remedy can be found, as you’ve tried everything. Sex, flattery, and fame are well-known Scorpio weaknesses, but lately you’re coming to realize just how pitifully they satiate you when what you crave are real, sustained connections. In the weeks to come, ask yourself what changes you can make to attract what you secretly long for–even if you’re not ready to admit it just yet.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
If Saturn is the authority figure demanding more maturity and discipline from their children, Sagittarius could very well be the rebel child giving their old man a run for his money. Traditions and the inevitable restrictions that come with them just don’t hold much favor with you, Sag–there’s too much to explore and experience. In your current fervor to pitch the old and embrace the new, make sure to keep a few wise souls in your counsel to prevent you from going astray.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
It makes perfect sense that the serious-minded and hard-working sea goat is ruled by equally assiduous Saturn. You too favor the purposeful over the frivolous, and are quick to side-eye those who come off as lazy or undedicated. Sorry to break it to you, but even Capricorns need a break from their self-imposed diligence. With Venus waltzing into your ruling planet on the 30th, prepare for some unexpected–but not altogether unwelcome–surprises that might just lure you from your work long enough to savor a gratifying interlude.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Individuality is everything to the higher-minded water bearer. Once you feel yourself losing your identity to a partner, crowd, or profession it’s only a matter of time before you make your exit. Being part of the herd is nothing short of shameful in the eyes of most Aquarians, and those who do sacrifice their uniqueness for social camouflage ultimately live to regret it. The path you’re on now may be lonely–alienating, even–but trust that your true supporters will be waiting for you at the finish line.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
There is much about you that mirrors Venus’s brief but significant sojourn with Saturn on the 30th. Like this unlikely cosmic duo you are a study in contrasts, at any given time pulled in a hundred conflicting directions. Above all you are torn between your world and this one, as you admittedly prefer the former, and can make little sense of the rules and cruelties your fellow humans live and die by. In the past your answer has been to find a safe sanctuary in which to ride out the storm, but now you’re ready to defend your vision of a better world.
