With the warmer weather improving our blood flow, we’re heading into fiery Aries season, commencing a new year-long cycle. The universe encourages us to be bold and take initiative on our own desires, and the astrological new year gives us a sense of cosmic renewal. We do have a bit of an intense month coming up, however, as Mercury goes retrograde in dramatic Aries on the first. We’ll also have a total solar eclipse in Aries on April 8. Though it won’t be visible from Japan, a solar eclipse — which is sometimes referred to as a hyper-charged new moon — might signal a dramatic change or forced reset. Since we have a busy month ahead and emotions might run high, don’t forget to take breaks and check in with yourself regularly.  

Keep reading below for your sign’s monthly horoscope, and make sure to check both your sun and rising signs.
