Leo of the Month: Anna Paquin—married to her True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer, with whom she has twins— was born on the cusp of Cancer and Leo. Thus, she possesses the crab’s devotion and the lion’s legendary sex appeal.
LEO, July 23–Aug. 22
Lions, obey the call of the wild this month: Your love life will be scorching, your social life anything but tame. To top it off, your charisma and originality are about to open new doors.
VIRGO, Aug. 23–Sept. 22
Like summer TV, your life is in reruns: You’ll get a second shot at a missed opportunity at work, while familiar social scenarios bring repeat pleasure. When it comes to love, however, opt for original content.
LIBRA, Sept. 23–Oct. 22
It’s time to get productive. Start linking in with professional contacts, and tackle a project you’ve been stalling on. There will be more than enough time left over for fun.
SCORPIO, Oct. 23–Nov. 21
Opportunities for a promotion abound right now. Consider an enticing new offer, especially if it will allow you to upgrade your skills. Out of office, it’s not too late for a summer romance.
SAGITTARIUS, Nov. 22–Dec. 21
It’s the optimal time for a vacation. A few changes in schedule won’t throw you; trust that you’ll end up in the right place at the right time. Be equally adaptable when it comes to dating.
CAPRICORN, Dec. 22–Jan. 19
You’re in a rut at work, but don’t let it keep you from talking up your ideas and getting others onside. Take advantage of this slow period by devoting more time to your friends. One piece of advice: All relationships benefit from better communication.
AQUARIUS, Jan. 20–Feb. 18
Your charisma is currently off the charts. It’ll help you generate buzz and bring you closer to your significant other. The only sticking point: cash. Read the fine print and check your credit report.
PISCES, Feb. 19–March 20
The lazy days of summer prove insanely busy at work. It’s a good time to get coworkers onside and to voice your ideas. Rest and regroup when you can.
ARIES, March 21–April 19
In terms of romance, the ball is in your court; remember that you’re at your most irresistible right now. One area in which you will need to work harder: the office.
TAURUS, April 20–May 20
You’re overwhelmed with career opportunities at the moment, but take your time, ask a lot of questions and be choosy. Your relationship might also take a big step. (Buy a meet-the-parents dress.)
GEMINI, May 21–June 20
A much-anticipated getaway will be bliss… even if you can’t entirely detach from work. Your creative energy is at an all-time high; put it to good use!
CANCER, June 21–July 22
You’re suddenly fearless. Assert yourself at work and let the boss in on your ambitions. Dare to have a summer fling, and toss your inhibitions to the wind.
