For all of our astrology lovers, The Echo is diving into how the stars align each week.

It's an exciting time to be alive this week. Midterms may be upcoming but spring break is also on the horizon — so let's take a look at what the stars and planets are pushing you to do! Getting your things in order might be the best way to go as you prepare for a fun break full of rest and rejuvenation.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Listen to your body. This week might be overwhelming, but make sure to take some rest when you need it. Even if you feel like being productive, remember the power of sleeping in and the importance of taking breaks. As for relationships, stay true to yourself and your values. Because of Friday's Venus-Chiron alignment, make sure that while you support your friends and others, you continue to listen to yourself and what you stand for. As for finances, the Mercury and Jupiter connection will allow you to get through any challenge the bank – or your addiction to splurging on coffee — can throw at you.

Spring break activity: Take a solo retreat to Sedona.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

This week is going to be risky. Instead of trying to overanalyze, take a break and give others the benefit of the doubt. Don't ignore any major red flags, but allow yourself to look positively at others to receive similar treatment back. As for your studies, take a professional leap this week by expanding your horizons through networking or getting out of your comfort zone socially.  On Thursday, the alignment between Mercury and Neptune enables your friends to actually have good ideas, so take their word for it. Go do something spontaneous this week!

Spring break activity: Go on a road trip with your friends in a place you've never been to.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

It may be daunting to constantly think about the future, but this week, just place life in the hands of the universe. Take an adventure this week, as the alignment of Venus and Chiron tells you to get out this weekend. Maybe set up a pre-spring break party or prepare for the fun week. With the sun and Jupiter also aligning, make sure to pay attention to your weekly habits. Get ready for spring break and go with the flow!

Spring break activity: Take a beach trip to California or Mexico!

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Let's get some priorities together before spring break. Make sure you focus on those foundational relationships this week and ground yourself in those you trust. Relationships might be in a slump currently, but good conversations will allow those relationships to continue to ebb and flow. Finding constant sources of joy is important before enjoying any crazy night out or vacation. As for the workplace and classes, the Venus-Chiron conjunction encourages you to take a risk with your colleagues and coworkers to inspire more fruitful collaboration. 

Spring break activity: Take a day to spend time with your family!

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Don't go overboard with spring break planning this week. Try to just contribute your own part, and let others do what they need. Be brave this week — tell that one person what’s really going on in your heart. I mean, the Mercury-Neptune alignment is just telling you to do so. As Mercury and the sun connect with Jupiter, positive money-making decisions and potential professional discussions are in development. Keep shining like the star you are!

Spring break activity: Go with the flow and let things unfold naturally.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22)

Similar to many of the other signs this week, it's time to take a break and chill. This week might be a stressful one, but it's important to recognize that we all need a break, and it’s important to take one. As Mars and Jupiter align, do not take things personally, and don’t stress out. Better relationships and working dynamics are on their way — just be present and patient.

Spring break activity: Spend a day at the spa and take a little staycation!

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 22)

Remember that, at the end of the day, you're just a human being. Be kind to yourself, remember your worth and speak up for yourself. This week's Mercury-Neptune connection will allow you to speak about stress in a positive manner. As Venus clashes with Uranus, speak up about something you've found disturbing or defy social norms — it’s in your hands!

Spring break activity: Volunteer and fight for a cause where you can make a difference!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) 

We're all figuring out the people who work best with us. There’s always going to be opponents, but this week, try to focus on those you love. It may be hard to do so, but keep yourself grounded. Within those relationships, focus on the things that have been weighing you down. When Mercury meets Saturn, it will inspire you to step out of habitual parts of certain friendships, and it's important to discuss those little things so they don’t continue to build. Love yourself and love others. Know your worth.

Spring break activity: Plan a “relationship renewal” weekend with some friends and head up to the Grand Canyon or Sedona.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Check those foundations, Sagittarius. Even though the path of least resistance may seem like the way to go, push yourself for new challenges this week. Fix anything that is pulling you down — it's not too late. On Friday, the Venus-Chiron connection will allow you to speak bravely about something that has been weighing you down, so take this advice for this week and stay strong. Expect some news from home this week as Mercury meets the sun. Be a little goofy this week — your silly side is waiting to come out.

Spring break activity: Learn yoga and participate in a 'mindful Monday.'

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) 

Trust your gut this week. If there is something you've been waiting to get off your chest, get it off. It might be time to talk to your roommate about those dirty dishes. Don't push past your limits; know what defines you. This week may be the time for some deep conversations when Mercury and the sun meet Jupiter. Be optimistic!

Spring break activity: Consider camping in Arizona for a weekend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)  

It's hard right now, we know, but running away from your problems isn't going to solve anything. As this week progresses, be sure of yourself, and you'll be able to defeat anything that comes your way. With Tuesday’s Mars and Jupiter collision, you'll be showing your emotional side; be vulnerable to allow everything to work out. As Venus clashes with Uranus, you’ll be given the confidence to fix those relationships and financial problems. 

Spring break activity: Pick up some shifts and earn some extra spending money for the summer.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Life has been hard lately, but just you wait – something bright and beautiful is on the horizon, maybe during spring break. As Mercury and Jupiter meet, let go of the overthinking that has been holding you down. With Mercury and the sun meeting with Jupiter, you will not lose sight of the bigger picture of happiness; it's all going to be okay!

Spring break activity: Consider going to a scenic coastal destination and getting your beach on!
