Don’t look now, betches, but I think…Spring is…coming? The sun is shining, the days are getting longer, and the will to live is slowly returning to my body. Could it be? Are we really almost out of the woods? Probably not, but let’s all just pretend together. How will the shifting seasons affect you this week? Find out in your betchy weekly horoscopes.
This is a week for closure, Aries. A new month brings new perspective, which we have loosely translated to “please move on.” Setbacks, be they of the love or professional orientation, are bound to happen from time to time – you just need to figure out how to handle them. Take a few days to lick your wounds and then get back out there. Throwing yourself into something new is the best way to get your mind off the past.
You’ve been in a bit of a rut lately, Taurus, and this week will show you a way out of it. It’s time to dive into that new hobby you’ve been eyeing, but still not committing to. What are you waiting for? No one will greenlight your next passion project – it’s on you to follow through. Carve out some time this week to dive in, and dedicate a few days to getting your bearings. If it turns out it’s not for you, no problem! There’s always a new thing to pick up.
We’re all for the hustle, Gemini, but even the best of us need a break sometimes. This week, try taking a step back from your never-ending to do list to center yourself. When was the last time you ate a good meal? Put on a face mask? Idk, washed your hair? If you can’t answer any of those questions with 100% certainty, it’s time to chill out for a minute. Your work will be there when you get back, and you’ll be better equipped to deal with it with the renewed energy that only Netflix binging can give you.
Time to get down and dirty, Cancer. You’ve got a week of hard work ahead of you, and your best bet is meeting it head on. Sure, these things can be exhausting and tedious, but that feeling of ease and accomplishment at the end of the tunnel should be enough motivation to get you through. Plus, nothing aids a good night’s sleep like knowing you got sh*t done that day. Get your to do list ready, and don’t look up until it’s done. God speed, my friend.
This is the week for telling your truth, Leo. You’ll find yourself feeling more open than usual, which is wild, because you’re more open than most on a normal day. Let the next couple days be a spring cleaning for your soul, leading you into a happier, healthier March. Try getting things off your chest that you’ve been harboring, both good and bad. But please remember that those around you have not been privy to your internal monologue these last few weeks, so be sure to break any big news carefully.
Be careful with your words this week, Virgo. You may find your tongue a little sharper than usual, and if you don’t watch out it could get you into trouble. We know it can be hard to not bite back when people say stupid stuff, but we’d recommend erring on the side of civility just in case you come across a little harsher than anticipated. If you find your self-control slipping, try removing yourself from any situation that may lead to you popping off. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
You know what Spring means, Libra? It means it’s time to get your sh*t together. This is the perfect week to tackle the mess in your life, both literal and metaphorical. You’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is a full-on Marie Kondo of your life. Start with the physical – clothes you never wear but can’t seem to get rid of, that box of loose papers that you’ve been saving because you never know when you’ll need them, and maybe anything in your fridge with a questionable expiration date. Then move on to the less tangible things – numbers you should have deleted long ago, the unfollowing spree that you’ve been meaning to go on since 2015, and the text screenshots you save that only serve to piss you off when you read them. You’ll be a lighter, happier version of yourself by the time the weekend rolls around.
Don’t freak out Scorpio, but this week you’re going to find yourself feeling vulnerable. Love is in the air, and it may just have you peeling back some of those ogre-y, onion-y layers of yours. Don’t fight it! If someone has managed to make you feel this way, there’s likely a good reason. For the next couple days, try letting your heart take the lead, rather than your mind. It won’t feel natural, or probably even good at first, but you’ll get used to it. This window won’t last long, so take advantage of your seldom-seen sentimental side while you have the chance.
Your already highly-attuned emotions are going to be working in over drive this week, Sagittarius. This will be less of a problem for you, and more of a problem for everyone around you. For the next few days, try taking a deep breath and counting to ten before reacting to literally anything. Odds are, you’re going to be a tad bit more sensitive than you would usually be. In the meantime, try curling up with some wine and a rom com. This too shall pass. so don’t be too worried.
Some wires are going to get crossed this week Capricorn, which will make your already reticent communication skills even harder to access. Don’t worry, you can get through it, you’re just going to have to try a little harder than usual. If you get to the point where it feels like people are starting to get frustrated, don’t hesitate to remove yourself from the situation. Sometimes it can be easier to ride out these spells in solitude. Let your friends and family know that you need a few days to yourself, and re-emerge once you feel like you can communicate again.
You’ve been balling out a little too hard lately, Aquarius. You’re not in dire straits just yet, but a few more weeks of this behavior and you’re going to be reduced to a strict diet of beans and rice until your next paycheck hits. Let’s try to avoid that by spending this week doing some good old financial planning. Don’t know where to start? Maybe try hiding your credit cards for a couple days. A simple life may not be the most exciting, but right now it’s what you need.
It’s time to get back to basics, Pisces. There’s been a lot of development in your life these past few months, both personal and professional. This, of course, it isn’t a bad thing, but it’s also important to remember where you came from. Other people might be fooled by the rocks that you got, but deep down you know that you’re still Jenny from the Block. Spend this week trying to reconnect with her. Old habits, hobbies, or simple pleasures can do wonders to heal your worry soul. Just be sure not to backslide to any destructive tendencies you may have left in the past.

Let me paint you a picture: just over a month after the horrific deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 and wounded many more, lawmakers have made great strides in passing new gun violence prevention laws and making the protection of our citizens and children a top priority. There is peace and unity across party lines. Instead of guns, we use our words to get our message across. Everyone is safe and sound, and no March For Our Lives is needed. Obviously, that’s a load of fairytale bullshit. I mean, have you seen the news?
If you’re fed up with the lack of common-sense gun safety laws and want to do something about it, the students of Parkland have got ya covered. This Saturday, March 24th, is the March For Our Lives, organized by the survivors of the Florida shooting to speak out against gun violence. While the main march is in Washington D.C., there are plenty of other ways to get involved wherever you live all across the country. So delay that Saturday morning hangover for one more day – there’s important activist shit to do.
Find A March Near You
Unless you have a ton of frequent flier miles or unlimited money for bus fare, you probably won’t be able to hop over to D.C. last minute to join the official march (and if you do have those things, hit me up. This bitch needs a vacation). Luckily, there are dozens of sister (yes – the march is a woman) marches organized in different cities, so there’s bound to be at least one that’s accessible to anyone who feels like joining in.
Click here to find a march near you, and start prepping your witty protest sign now so you can get a bunch of likes on Insta from all the people impressed with how woke you are. (Make sure to tag @MarchForOurLives and @Everytown, and use the #MarchForOurLives hashtag!) I’ll offer my sign suggestion, since I’m feeling extra generous: “The only guns that should be allowed in this country are Michelle Obama’s!” You can have that idea for free, folks.
Pick Up A Copy Of Time Magazine
Yes, they still make print magazines that you can actually physically flip through instead of scrolling past some tweeted quotes from an article. How retro. Time‘s new cover features five of the Parkland shooting survivors looking hella badass and like a squad of teens from a Marvel movie who are about to reveal their superpowers and save the world. These students are not far from actual superheroes, and their intelligence and maturity is definitely worth reading about.

Join The National Walkout
Following the widely successful walkout a few weeks ago where thousands of students of all ages left their classes and stood in solidarity emphasizing the need for common-sense gun safety laws, another walkout will be held on April 20th. This is the anniversary of the Columbine shooting, which is one of the first mass shootings we millennials can remember. It goes without saying that this date is often significant for another reason, so let’s just hope that everyone can muster up the energy to slowly walk out, maybe with an added sense of calm and Bob Marley’s “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” playing in the background.
In conjunction with the walkout, The Sup will also be engaging in a Facebook blackout on April 20th, standing in solidarity with the students, and also protesting Facebook’s social abuses and the spread of fake news. You can join us by turning your profile picture and cover photo black and not posting anything for 24 hours. Honestly, social media is a cesspool and only leads to getting mad about politicians’ tweets or FB stalking an ex so, like, you’re only doing yourself a favor by logging off.
Donate To The Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund
GoFundMe is the charity of the future. On crowdsourcing alone, the Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund has already raised over $4.5 million to provide relief and financial support to the victims and their families. No donation is too small, but just make sure you only donate to verified pages, otherwise you might be paying for some scammer’s new yacht, and that is definitely the opposite of charitable goodness.
Call Your Representatives
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: nothing is going to change unless we get legislators to listen to what the people are saying. You can reach your local representative by calling (201)-224-3121 and asking for the lawmaker in your state. Or, you can just go down this list of legislators who voted no to expanding background checks and making it harder for people to purchase guns. Turn it into a drinking game: take a shot for every senator you get to bitch out, and chug your drink if it sounds like they might actually change their stance.
Heads up, you need to keep up with the news. It’s not cute anymore. That’s why we’ve created a 5x weekly newsletter called The ‘Sup that will explain all the news of the week in a hilarious af way. Because if we weren’t laughing, we’d be crying. Sign up for The ‘Sup now!
Hear ye, hear ye, it’s time to get shitfaced celebrate because it’s Aries’ birthday month. Break out your pink plastic tiaras because these betches know how to keep it real, and this month it’s all about them. These ladies are relaxed enough to wear sweats beyond just Netflix and chilling, yet they still manage to look fierce AF when it’s time to get shit done. They can be impatient at times, but like, only when the Uber is taking 20 years to show up. They’re also totally confident enough to slip that hot bartender their digits when signing the check (take notes).
So let’s just take a moment to recognize all of the badass Aries ladies in our lives. Oh and probs buy them a gift too or else you’ll never hear the end of it. Typical Aries. Here’s a list of what makes Aries betches amazing—and other shit astrology told us about them.
