The Astrological New Year Begins In Your March 16 Weekly Horoscope

Now that Mercury retrograde is history (for now), things are starting to fall into place. You're turning the page and embarking on a brand-new chapter. Luckily, you have every reason to be excited about what's in store. The icy, cold winter is finally beginning to thaw, making way for new life to sprout in its place. Springtime begins in your March 16, 2020 weekly horoscope, and this season is about sowing the seeds of another beginning. The soil is rich with moisture from melting snow, making it time to plant something beautiful and watch it grow. When the sun enters passionate, competitive, and headstrong Aries on March 19, it will not only be the first day of spring, it will also be the beginning of the astrological new year.

The cosmos are making your transition into this next season a steady and spiritually rejuvenating one. On March 16, Mercury — planet of communication and cognitive function — will re-enter dreamy, artistic, and compassionate Pisces after its backward retrograde movement, giving you the chance to harness the energy of this transit with far more strength. Use it to dig deep, spread empathy, and let go of your ego. When the sun forms a sextile to stable and committed Saturn on March 19, you will feel grounded and able to find your footing after a very confusing and ambiguous time.

Saturn — planet of long-term goals, maturity, and karma — will come into play again as it enters Aquarius on March 21, signaling a new era of growth and revolution. Saturn spends around two and a half years in each zodiac sign, making this transit a major one. Saturn is at home in rebellious, humanitarian, and intellectual Aquarius, making this a time to revitalize the structures of your life, as well as society as a whole. It makes total sense that what could possibly be the most important U.S. election of your lifetime takes place during Saturn in Aquarius, because the results of this election have the power to shape the nature of politics for many years to come. However, when it comes down to you as an individual, this transit will encourage you to go against the grain and break through barriers that once held you back.

Even though this may sound intense, the remainder of the week is filled with romance, enthusiasm, creativity, and pleasant surprises. When ambitious Mars joins forces with expansive Jupiter on March 20, it will give you an unbelievable amount of stamina, so put that energy toward something worthwhile. As brainy Mercury connects with unpredictable Uranus on March 22, beautiful strokes of genius could take place, so make sure to jot down any explosive ideas you come up with. Later that same day, Venus — planet of love and luxury — connects with dreamy and compassionate Neptune, inducing the cosmos with compassion, imagination, and a delightful perspective of life.



The world is paying attention to you, so prepare for the spotlight that's sure to follow you around this week.

Set aside whatever it is you're so anxious or concerned about and give yourself the freedom to have fun instead. If you keep postponing your happiness, you'll never find time for it.

All you need to do is feel the earth beneath your feet.


Romance is fluttering in your heart, so indulge in poetry, flirtatious banter, candle-lit dinners, as well as anything under the sun that you definitely deserve. Your confidence is reaching new heights, so use this bravery to introduce yourself to your crush or overcome your fear of expressing yourself. The only person judging you is you, so why spend your time coloring inside the lines?


The outer world may feel incredibly exhausting to you right now, so grant yourself permission to cancel your plans and do exactly what your spirit tells you to do.

Even though you may not think you're getting anything done, things are processing behind the scenes.
