VIRGO, Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Prioritize: A heavy work load keeps you in the present, but find time for plotting your future, too. With so many intriguing options, consider consulting a life coach to help you create a 12-month plan.


LEO, July 23–Aug. 22

Renovate. It’s a great time to update your home, wardrobe or life plan. Charm someone else into doing the menial work (besides, you’re accident
prone right now).

LIBRA, Sept. 23–Oct. 22

Discern. Resist snap decisions when a relationship issue resurfaces. Instead, weigh your options carefully. (The same advice goes for work.) Reinforce your position at the office.

SCORPIO, Oct. 23–Nov. 21

Transform. Are you made for bigger and better things? This could be the time to set out on a different career path. A romance, new or old, can change everything.

SAGITTARIUS, Nov. 22–Dec. 21

Adjust. You could be in line for a raise in salary or status, but be aware of any conditions. A chance encounter with a former flame could reignite your fire.


CAPRICORN, Dec. 22–Jan. 19

Learn. Seek out ways to upgrade your skills or expand your mind, in and out of class. An issue with a friend will come to a head; at least you know where you stand.

AQUARIUS, Jan. 20–Feb. 18

Ignite It’s an action-packed month, and you could reap the rewards of past efforts on the job. Your passions extend beyond ideas to embrace new romantic possibilities.

PISCES, Feb. 19–March 20

Relate. Think quality over quantity, and focus on the one who may be The One. Communication is the key on all fronts; lively discussions bring insight about
future direction.

ARIES, March 21–April 19

Capitalize. The pace is fast and furious at work; stay the course as you jockey for a key position. At home, relationships require sensitivity—especially if you want to repair a rift.


TAURUS, April 20–May 20

Endure. Drama is inevitable at the office and at home. Seek respite at social events where you can meet people who provide access to new opportunities.

GEMINI, May 21–June 20

Connect. As your career skyrockets, stay grounded. Rally friends and family who can provide a steadying influence. A trusted mentor lends perspective.

CANCER, June 21–July 22

Breathe. Take that postponed vacation or long weekend retreat. You’ll soon have a chance to find new love or fan the flames of an existing relationship.
