Remember that your words can hurt, but they can also heal too—so be kind. Try to channel that intense energy towards more productive things!

Find out how the energies of this retrograde will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You have made steady progress on your way to your grand vision. But be careful about having a superiority complex now that you’re experiencing continued success and material wealth. Remember that money isn’t everything. Always be kind and be prepared for obstacles while anticipating every opportunity available to you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) 

Remember that resisting change will only hurt you in the long run. You must face your fears, accept new beginnings, and take risks so you can achieve greater heights. Have courage and patience; you have all the tools you need to get through these difficult times.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Your vision has not been going according to plan causing frustration and doubt. Take this time to reevaluate your priorities and do some inner reflection. Don’t beat yourself up over mistakes! Be kind to yourself and learn from failure. Help is always there when you need it too.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Disappointing setbacks have got you filled with resentment. It’s okay to give yourself a moment to feel bad as long as you pick yourself up and keep going. Everything takes time. Have patience and work hard; the reward you’ll get in the end will be worth it. Trust yourself and stay open to new experiences!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Dramatic events have led you to strongly reassess your life at this time, and it would do you well to let go of things, people, situations, and habits that won’t help you in the long run. Learn from your mistakes and grow from your experiences. It would be wise to better manage your expenses too, making sure you’re living within your means. Don’t spend what you don’t have.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You feel so tied up with all these responsibilities that, if you aren’t careful, it will cause you to neglect your relationships. Balance is key to a happier, more successful life. Don’t bite off more than you can chew! Know where to spend your energy wisely and where your priorities lie. Work isn’t everything.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Despite all your hard work, you feel like you aren’t getting the results you expect, leaving you hounded by doubt and anxiety. Don’t focus on how long it’s taking you; focus on your passion to succeed instead. You’re in this for the long haul so don’t give up! Stay true to your intentions, stay grounded, and keep your eyes on the prize.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Self-doubt hounds your brain and you’re beginning to question your intentions. Shake them off! You’ve gotten this far on your own, after all. You deserve all this success and more. Don’t let yourself be affected by other people’s method of doing things because everyone’s journey is different. Stay focused and driven!

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Lately, you’ve been focusing too much on what you want to do at the moment without considering the consequences of your actions. Get out of your head and be prepared for what’s to come. Life is full of choices and what matters is how you choose to respond to its challenges. Create opportunities instead of waiting for them to happen.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You feel your energy depleting with the uncontrollable tide of your emotions, and it’s necessary for you to find your place of calm at this time. Make space for self-care! Find comfort in your family, friends, and loved ones. Know that when everything doesn’t seem to be going right, they will always be there to keep you afloat.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You feel so bored with your life and are looking for ways to add more fun to it. Seek new opportunities and learn new things! Don’t resist change; it’s only through it that you can grow. If you feel at any point disconnected from your inner self, take some time off and treat yourself with self-care. Only you know what your heart needs.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You may be feeling overwhelmed with duties and responsibilities right now, and it’s depleting your energy. You need to find a better balance between your home and work life so you don’t burn out. Prepare a plan to achieve your long-term vision more efficiently. It’s important to take care of yourself while investing in your future!
