ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Got one too many Architectural Digests laying around on your bathroom floor, Aries? What may have started out as an, er, extracurricular activity, has blossomed into full-fledged inspiration. Start redecorating room by room on July 13. Your roommate finally might green-light that tiki bar idea.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Travel plans, Taurus? Everyone may have been hitting 101 on the Fourth of July, but you kept it low-key. Make up for lost time, trips and hangovers on July 11 with a mini-vacation. A three-day getaway might be just the trick you need to brainstorm your next creative adventure—at least tell your boss that.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Did someone say problem solver, Gemini? Looks like you’re about to take center stage at work with either a presentation or an award-winning idea. Your boss might try to take some of the credit for your out-of-this-world, game-changing idea (Hawaiian Shirt Fridays or post-work Tuesday Night Bowling)—so watch out. Don’t play along; claim what is yours—the VIPs will be impressed.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Is your job stressing you out, Cancer? It’s best not to take any wild risks come July 11. You may be at your wit’s end and feel like drastic is the only way to deal, but pulling a Wolf of Wall Street won’t work. Watch out for any impetuous decision-making—you’ll regret any contract you sign within the hour.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) What were your co-workers whispering about you, Leo? Well, you won’t have to wonder any longer—on July 8 you are straight-up psychic. You’ve got all of the answers in the palms of your hands, thanks to your third eye. Go with your gut all day and carve out some time for a little extra meditating if you really want to take it to the next level.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Work is for schmucks, Virgo! Call in sick on July 14! It’s time for your friends, family and fun to take the front seat. Typically, a planner like yourself would schedule a vacation 17 months in advance, but we’re going to go out on a limb here and say that taking a sick day won’t kill you. Do everything you’ve always dreamed of—check out Target and a local dive bar on a Tuesday morning.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Your boss thinks you’re annoying, Libra. Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or you’ve been using the same predictable punch line at the coffee machine every other day. Whatever caused this tiff, the planets are only encouraging it. Think before you speak on July 8—otherwise you might find yourself suspended with no pay.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Trying to skip town, and maybe even the continent, Scorpio? If you have travel plans, your travel plans have plans for you. Be extra cautious regarding any immigration matter on July 14. Triple-check any passport applications—you may have forgotten to check one box that is going to keep you from getting your Christopher Columbus on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Come on, Sagittarius—it’s celebration time! Did you put a bid on a house and win? Looks like you’re a new homeowner, and guess what? Homeowner looks good on you. Matters regarding property, a living situation or family will herald good news. Plan a party to celebrate on July 9.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) The new moon has some words for you, Capricorn! It’s here to help you go left or right, up or down, here or there—Facebook official! A relationship with a business partner or love interest will have an all-new meaning for you, thanks to the full moon’s vivacious energy. Make it or break it, as they say, on July 14.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Are you working overtime, Aquarius? It looks like Mars took up a residence in your work sector and has you on the go until Aug. 8. Invest in a whiteboard and a giant calendar—you’re going to need to put your planning hat on to juggle all of these assignments. Also invest in some sunscreen and margarita mix to celebrate after Mars’ departure!
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Feeling extra creative, Pisces? The right side of your brain is beaming with new ideas and can’t contain itself on July 9. Use your lunch break to brainstorm some pitches for freelance projects. After all, how do you think Bevis and Butt-head was created?
