March is going to be huge for relationships.
The month kicks off with Venus moving into Aquarius, making both you and your S.O. want to spend some time with friends in between all that couple time (fair). Then, the new moon on the 6th stirs up some serious dreamy, romantic vibes, so you can capitalise on the time you and your partner do spend together.
On the 21st, relationship planets Mars and Venus are square with each other, causing a little friction in your relationship. While makeup sex is hot and all, just remember that compromise can go a long way toward smoothing things over.
But don't worry—any issues you have with your partner should be smoothed over by the 26th when Venus moves into Pisces. You’ll both be all about giving each other unconditional love and acceptance. And really, those are crucial ingredients for a great relationship.
Here's what else is in store for you this month, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.
1. ARIES (MARCH 21–APRIL 19)
Looking for someone new and exciting to warm your bed? You’re in luck, Aries. Venus, the planet of love and relationships, is in your house of friendship, meaning your friends can hook you up in the love department (score). If you’re already in a relationship, you’ll love just hanging with your S.O. like you do your buddies.
You’ll be all about fantasising this month, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Pay attention to any sex dreams—and don’t hesitate to try out the spicier ones IRL.
2. TAURUS (APRIL 20–MAY 20)
Not-so-good news: You’ll suddenly start to question your sex life this month. Are you fooling yourself into thinking it’s something that it’s not? If so, it’s time to speak up.
Someone new catches your eye at work when Venus, the planet of love and beauty, moves into your house of career. While it never hurts to see what’s up with that, just proceed with caution. The whole work/relationship thing can get a little (okay, a lot) sticky.
3. GEMINI (MAY 21–JUNE 20)
Someone really, really wants to set you up with a new flame, Gem. So just go with it when a buddy pushes you to go on a blind date. You never know what it could turn into…
If you’re in a relationship, it’s time to just go out and have some fun together. Go on a mini road trip or vow to spend an entire Saturday in bed, eating takeout and doing…other things (wink). This is a perfect time for you and your SO to start planning for a sexy getaway, even if you can’t go away right now. Later, the full moon on the 20th cranks up the romance for you. Again, go with it—there’s something to be said for doing it up right.
4. CANCER (JUNE 21–JULY 22)
Sex is on your mind, Cancer, thanks to Venus in a sector of your chart that represents what you share with someone else. Luckily, you’ll have plenty of it. And don’t be afraid to tell your partner what’s working and what isn’t doing it for you—it will only benefit you both in the long run.
Single? Mars, the planet of action, is in your house of friendship this month. If you put some extra energy into your buddies, they could connect you with someone who turns out to be somuch more.
5. LEO (JULY 23–AUGUST 22)
This is a great month for relationships for you, Leo, whether you’re in one or not. If you’re single, it's time to get out there. If you already have a plus-one, take some time and focus on your significant other. They’ll appreciate it (and you) even more than usual.
The new moon on the 6th is in your house of deep intuition, making it a great time to listen to your gut in bed. Don’t hesitate to try something new—it could become your new go-to. At some point, you’ll start to wonder if you can get even more intimate in your relationship, and that’ll push you to try a little harder. All the extra effort will pay off. By the end of the month, you’ll feel totally satisfied.
6. VIRGO (AUGUST 23–SEPTEMBER 22)
Not gonna lie here, Virgo: When Mercury goes retrograde on the 5th, it’ll stir things up a little in your love life (sorry). Suddenly, you’ll start to question some things. Are you with the right person? Are you ready for more commitment, or are you cool with the status quo? There’s a little uncertainty there, but it's nothing to stress over. It’s totally okay to take a beat, listen to your gut, and just think on things.
The full moon on the 20th will make you wonder about balance in your sex life, too. Are you giving as much as you’re receiving and vice versa? If not, time to speak up and make a change.
7. LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23–OCTOBER 22)
Love is HUGE for you this month, Libra. It all starts on the first of the month, when Venus is in your fifth house of romance. You’ll be all about doing romantic things for your S.O., or getting into the dating scene and just connecting with people. If you’re in a relationship, you’ll be flooded with new ideas of cool things you can do together. It’s finding the time to make them happen that’s the tricky part…
The full moon on the 20th makes you wonder about finding a good balance between taking care of your bedmate and getting yours. While compromise is key, don’t forget to put your needs out there—they’re super important, too.
8. SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23–NOVEMBER 21)
The month kicks off for you with a new moon in your house of dating and romance, making this a very good time to get out there. You’ll start daydreaming about your perfect bedmate. The question is, do you already have one?
If you don't, keep yourself in check and listen to your gut when meeting someone new. Things—and people—aren’t always what they seem at first. If you’re already in a relationship, be ready to feel like a sex goddess. Your S.O. wants you bad all month, and it’s only going to benefit you.
9. SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22–DECEMBER 21)
You’re all about talking things out this month, Sag, thanks to Venus in your house of communication. There’s something to be said for splitting a bottle of wine with your S.O. and just having a really good chat. Around the 20th, you’ll feel like your life (and your sex life) are moving in the right direction. Still, you’ll crave more adventure, and if you want something, you’re the type to go out and get it.
Towards the end of the month, you’ll need to compromise a little between spending time with your partner and your friends. A little juggling will go a long way—and do all of your relationships a solid in the process.
10. CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22–JANUARY 19)
You want to get some action, Capricorn? You got it. Mars, the planet of action, is in your house of romance and dating, creating all kinds of new opportunities for you. Put yourself out there ASAP.
If you’re already in a relationship, now is the time to speak up about your needs. After all, you won’t get what you don’t ask for. The new moon on the 6th is in your house of communication, so keep it simple when it comes to sharing your ideas. You may think you’re being clear when your S.O. has no clue what you’re actually saying.
11. AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20–FEBRUARY 18)
Damn, you look good, Aquarius—and everyone around you knows it, too. It’s all thanks to Venus being in your sign. Don’t be afraid to splurge a little on new lingerie or pamper yourself with a massage. It’ll all translate to more pleasure for you.
You also have a new attitude toward sex: Your partner can take or leave what you’re dishing out. When Mercury goes direct on the 28th, you’ll be eager to pick up some new skills to use in bed. G-spot sex positions, anyone?
12. PISCES (FEBRUARY 19–MARCH 20)
Someone’s got their eye on you, Pisces. You just don’t know it yet. Don’t be afraid to explore new things and new people to help suss out who your secret admirer is.
Around the 6th, you’ll start to have some serious fantasies. Are you getting what you want in bed? If not, take what you’re dreaming and actually do something about it. You won’t regret it. When Venus moves into your sign on the 26th, you’ll get a sweet energy in the bedroom. Suddenly, all the romantic things you’ve been hoping for will come back to you.
