This week, Mars is on the move. The feisty red planet will cause chaos for some signs, and overwhelming clarity for others.

Mars represents our deepest desires and passions, while also bringing out anger, energy and assertion.

Some signs will find themselves challenged by their Mars alignments, while others will find the perfect opportunity to focus their ambitions.

♈ Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

This week will challenge you to make the big changes you’ve been putting off. If you’re struggling with feelings of dissatisfaction, push your boundaries and take a chance! You may be pleasantly surprised with the outcome.

♉ Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Your relationships will be tested as Mars joins the sun in your relationship sector this week. Assert your own passion and stay true to your opinions, but always leave room for compromise.

♊ Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

This week will see a surge in Gemini’s productivity as Mars aligns with the Sun. You will have all the motivation you need to get through a challenging week. Deal with the big issues first, and don’t sweat the small stuff. Listen to people when they reach out to help.

♋ Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Romance is on the cards for Cancers this week. With your witty charm and endless confidence, you will flourish in any romantic scenario to sweep that lucky someone off their feet.

♌ Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

Throughout a challenging week, you will be fiercely protective of those close to you. A sense of familiarity will be far more important than going out of your comfort zone. Stay aware and do something nice for yourself this week.

♍ Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

With Mars moving into Virgo’s communication sector, it’s important to be wary of how to talk to people this week. Talking to people with aggression or ulterior motives won’t get you anywhere this week. A little tact should be exercised.

♎ Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

As Mars moves into your money sector, Libras will find themselves enticed by the finer things in life. Treat yourself, but don’t go overboard. This financial opportunity can also be a great time to invest in the side hustle you’ve always wanted to pursue, or to fatten up your savings.

♏ Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

As Mars joins the Sun for Scorpios, you will find their charisma almost irresistible. Use this unwavering confidence to get your own way, but be wary of teetering into intimidation. If you take the initiative, you could have a very successful week.

♐ Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

Give yourself the time and space to appreciate the smaller pleasures in life. Slow down and smell the roses, and try to focus on your long-term goals. If you act hastily and impulsively, there’s a chance the risk will not pay off.

♑ Capricorn (December 22nd – January 20th)

As Mars moves into your friendship sector, be prepared for drama. Be aware of friction in your relationships, but also use this opportunity to socialise and have fun. Your calm demeanor will quickly diffuse tense situations.

♒ Aquarius (January 21st – February 18th)

A surge in ambition will have you reaching for the stars, as you can show those around you what you’re passionate about. Be sure to explore places other than your comfort zone, as you will be praised for left-of-centre ideas.

♓ Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Movement of Mars will strengthen your point of view, and make you far more assertive in all aspects of your life. Take the time to engage in critical conversations and debates, and share your passions with others.
