March Snoozescopes with Angie Banicki

Snooze Scopes Horoscope

As we emerge from hibernation mode and embrace longer daylight (hello, more naps), we turn to famed Snoozescopes astrologist Angie Banicki for March’s astral enlightenment. Discover what’ll unfold in the month ahead, and the universe’s secrets to feeling Good in Bed.


ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Influenced by SEVEN OF CUPS, Rx

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: to reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

Aries, your spirit animal this month is the wolf – how will you channel her? Perhaps you are realizing how you want your pack to be, or how you want to elevate your tribe. Wolves find their soul tribes and then learn when to go it alone (and also, when to be with the group). Who is your tribe? How will you have their backs and ask for assistance from them in turn? Wolves mate for life, so perhaps your wolf medicine this month is to choose or reup with your mate. Wolf wisdom teaches us to socialize, teaches us balance in solitude and with others and also teaches us loyalty. Wolf medicine may be reaching out for you to become a teacher. If this resonates, how can you accept that calling more deeply? You know if it is your soul path to inspire others.  Listen to the wolf now and watch for her signals – in life and in your dreams.

Sleep potion: Basil is used to help with nervous insomnia and mental strain. Make yourself a hot water with Basil (add a little lemon or lavender for bonus).

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Influenced by SEVEN OF SWORDS

“I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.” – Zig Ziglar

Change is swirling, Taurus and whether you are ready or not, it has chosen you for some big pushes. Your work now is to strip back all the illusions from your life, so we can really see you with this change. How many times have you meditated on the lotus flower? Well, did you know that the lotus flower actually flourishes in muck and mud? This is where its petals open up, layer after layer. You are the lotus this month. Time to shed the false beliefs, the chaos and get back to who you are. What can you unlayer for us? Show us more of you. There’s a bit of destiny in how this is opening for you Taurus, and you get to choose. But we know you want to help us all create this new world. Your flowering is going to be an example for so many of us – so don’t be afraid to be the first. Show us all the way!

Sleep potion: Drink more water. Lots of water this month. Also, have a bath with tea tree oil.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Influenced by FIVE OF PENTACLES, Rx

“I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean

Gemini, the spiritual guidance available to you this month feels quite off the charts. You are being steered by the angels. No, not this way – over here. They will also be revealing anything that has been hidden from you. Truths will be revealed whether they want to be or not. You are divinely protected along with this guidance. Home or feeling safe at home is important for you this month. Know the places that bring you comfort and go to them. Or create them if you travel.  Nature is always one of these. You will want those safe spaces to feel held in between the moments and adventures your guides have taken you along – meeting people, exploring old terrain, and rediscovering yourself.

Sleep potion: WATER IS YOUR CURE.  Baths – lots of them. Add rosemary in the bath to invigorate. Chamomile oil baths at night to soothe you.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Influenced by 4 OF PENTACLES

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.” – Robert Byrne

You have two pieces of homework this month Cancer. One: Find more joy. Go play! Make time for it this month. You won’t regret the time you get to enjoy yourself. Two: Research, test, and question. Your logic and intellect wants to complement the intuitive side now. Let yourself ask the important questions, dig deeper into the meanings of things, and just explore all avenues of information for what you are working on. Work your mind a bit more than usual. For some of you this might mean questioning an authority or someone you normally trust. For others, it might be receiving a nagging gut feeling that there is more to uncover in a situation. You may just be feeling extra investigative this month in wanting to understand how something works or how it might work better. Follow all those inclinations. You will know when your soul is nudging you to understand something more.

Sleep potion: Sage is your friend now. Burn it to clear your space, clear your mind, or just to help you reset.

Picked for you:



LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Influenced by KING OF CUPS

“He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.” – Raymond Hull

The heart has a way to heal in a way the mind cannot comprehend. Don’t let your mind try to get in the way of that healing this month, Leo. Your mind isn’t big enough to do what your heart is loving you now. When your mind goes to work, take it to faith in your heart. Go listen to Stevie. It seems this month you are aware of a soul contract and its impact on you now.  Cherish the relationship for being in your life to teach you. The agreement is that they came here to help you feel more love. And this is a gift even if their teaching is not exactly how you want, or it feels out of your control. Or perhaps it just feels like more love than that heart of yours has ever felt. Some come in for a season, for a lesson and some for life. Accept each as a gift and soak up everything you can learn with each interaction.

Sleep potion:  Rosewood oil is your friend this month. Rosewood helps with the respiratory and nervous system. It helps balance emotions. Put some in your bath or maybe even dab on your sheets.

Picked for you:



VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Influenced by 6 OF PENTACLES

“I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” – Jack London

Virgo, can you open yourself to more abundance? Not just wealth, but friendships, experiences, love, and health. Do not limit what abundance you can call in now. Close your eyes and imagine. What would make you feel full? Then start seeing how the universe wants to show you how abundant you are. You have white buffalo woman energy around you, bringing you gifts after some hard times. You have worked hard on yourself and on living a more spiritually abundant life and the cards show this is meant to be rewarded now. So be optimistic and trust in the process.

Sleep potion: Bee pollen is your friend this month – a great prep for springtime. Boost your immune system and get some bee pollen!

Picked for you:



LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Influenced by THE HIEROPHANT

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

Do not give up on yourself now, sweet Libra. You aren’t overreacting or making things seem more important than they are in truth. You can trust that something isn’t quite right. You can show up now to the fight with courage and with optimism. There are no regrets. There is nothing to be overly upset over, instead an opportunity for big growth. You are in this now. You are here now in this to go to a bigger level of love and surrender. This might be a relationship you are fighting to raise up to your frequency. This might be about something you are fighting for in your work. This is not the moment to be passive. Stand up and be heard. The situation can be restored with conscious action.

Sleep potion: Lavender is your magic this month. Lavender in the bath or warm lavender oil with black pepper oil is great for a massage on muscles if you are extra active.

Picked for you:



SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Influenced by THE MOON

“Time goes by so fast, people go in and out of your life. You must never miss the opportunity to tell these people how much they mean to you.” – Unknown

Hey-oh scorpio, I think you know what I mean when I say, you can be rigid in your perspective, eh? What if you could let go of that rigidity, that drama, and just let nature run its course. Let the universe autocorrect for you. Shift your viewpoint and see if things slip more into their rightful places. You have hawk energy around you now and hawks have the best vantage point of us all.  Ever seen the hawk circling, blessing or seeing what it wants far below? You know what you want out of a situation. Or maybe you just know you want it to shift. You can trust in the clarity you see from above what it is you want to fulfill your destiny. Let spirit guide it for you. You will just be the ghostwriter, behind the scenes, writing out what feels right, and best for you.

Sleep potion: Chamomile and lavender are a great hormonal balancer for you.  For men, in low mood or depression.  For women with PMS, or those lows.

Picked for you:



SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Influenced by NINE OF CUPS, Rx

“Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for.” – Lawrence Block

Sag, you have two pieces of homework this month. The first is quite simple – create or update your sacred space. What do you need or where do you need to go to feel safe, to feel spirit, to feel connected? Set up an altar, bring in some beautiful sound, get some crystals or just redecorate your office if this is all too woo-woo for you. Make a space that feels special for you.  Second is a bit more financial healing. You are in a moment where you are letting go of a layer of fear or uncertainty in terms of your financial situation. This is happening so you can relax and flow more into your passion.

Sleep mantra: Patchouli oil is your friend this month. In the flower-power era of the ‘60s this was the “make love not war” oil. You can use it to unwind or to feel more connected with your partner.

Picked for you:



CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Influenced by THE WORLD, Rx

“Choose your thoughts carefully, keep what brings you peace, release what brings you suffering, and know that happiness is just a thought away.” – Nishan Panwar

Cappy, the struggle is almost over. That lost cause, that shattered dream you have been thinking about? It was all by design. This is just part of your transformational journey.  Everything you have been through was not for nothing. It was part of shaping you. No regrets.  No shame. No more judgment. You have not missed out. You have to be willing to let go of this old part of you. You have to be willing to let go of all those thoughts. All of the useless pain you have held onto. If you’ve felt hard at work and it doesn’t seem like it’s coming together or maybe feels like it’s going backwards, this is even more of a reminder to have faith. Something is coming this month to get you excited. You may have no idea how this piece fits into the puzzle, but you just need to follow the excitement!

Sleep potion:  Hot compress with eucalyptus oil is your friend for headaches or when you just want help to shift your thoughts.

Picked for you:



AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Influenced by EIGHT OF SWORDS, Rx

“Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” – William Jennings Bryan

Change is happening, Aquarius. Do not be afraid of that change or of that change not coming fast enough. It is happening. If you are seeking money as part of the change, go listen to Barrett Strong and do your money, make it rain dance. If you are struggling with the changes around a relationship, that change is coming too. Your work now is to look at how you are feeling like a burden or that someone feels like a burden. Are you taking on others' troubles or lessons? This might be because you don’t feel enough and this message is for you. YOU ARE WORTHY. You are worthy of the raining money, the raining men or women. Your work now is to get yourself feeling fully worthy. It’s that simple.

Sleep potion: Give yourself an early spring clean. Use bath salts and scrubs and clear yourself. Scrub off that old unworthiness feeling.

Picked for you:



PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)


“We are not the same person this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.” – W. Somerset Maugham

Oh my watery friend, emotions are passing through now and you must be patient as they flow through you. Do not attach to the emotions, trust they are flowing to bring you endless possibilities. And these possibilities feel new, exciting and definitely hold some unchartered territory. Your creative synopsis is firing all over. And be these ideas, relationships, homes, children – the universe plans to take care of the funding. So just work on letting the emotions wash over you with eyes closed so by month's end you can be surprised at all you see, or are at least beginning to see.

Sleep potion: Orange and orange blossom is your scent this month.  Maybe some neroli oil too.  If you can, start the day with an orange scrub.  It helps with circulation, is detoxifying and can also help reduce water retention and cellulite.
