ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Leave your hair how it is, Aries! Venus goes retrograde on July 25 until Sept. 6—leaving you with a block of time when you’ll have to suffer through those split ends and stray grays. It’ll also be a good time to reflect on your spending pattern, as Venus rules all things luxury.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Sign on the dotted line, Taurus! If you’re about to cut a deal with a company you’ve been working on a project-by-project basis with for many years, make sure to cross your T’s and dot your I’s on July 22. The sun and Saturn are teaming up to guarantee that you and your John Hancock get the best deal possible.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Romance is in the air, Gemini! It certainly isn’t on your Tinder app. Take a short vacation on July 25—driving 100 miles down the coast might do the trick. A new area code is just what you need to meet the perfect stranger at a diner—one who digs your corny jokes, or to get a change in scenery in your Tinder app’s 50-mile radius.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Trying to make a move, Cancer? Sure, the new moon in your sign last week had you contemplating every aspect of your life, but we’re talking about that waterfront property, complete with a water trampoline and wine cellar. Whatever deals you may be involved in when it comes to refinancing, selling or renting out your space, you’re going to have to resume at a later date—like in October.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) Put the box down and back away from the ring, Leo! Venus is retrograde as of July 25, which means that it’s not time to get engaged. If you’re thinking of popping the question to your beloved, think again—otherwise you’ll have to deal with a big, fat, awkward “No.” Your luxurious side will have to go into hibernation for a while. Think Netflix and pajamas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Get out your calendar, Virgo! It’s time to plan a date with your beloved. Love has been on the back burner and it’s time to throw a little surprise your significant other’s way. We’re not talking an “I love you”-in-the-sky kind of surprise—at this point, bringing him or her a cup of coffee in the morning might wake up the butterflies in his or her stomach.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) It’s time to reflect, Libra! Venus, your guardian planet, goes retrograde on July 25, which might make you feel like you’re stuck in a rut or that any personal growth may feel impossible. But, moreover, now’s the time to deeply examine your life and prepare to make some big decisions—like where you want to vacation in 2016, or what Netflix show to binge-watch next.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Money in the bank, Scorpio! Mercury and Saturn are the duo you can thank for all of the extra green showing up in your bank account. Expect an extra check or accidental deposit into your account on July 22. It couldn’t come at a better time—remember how much you owe your BFF for betting against the Warriors in the championship? Pay up!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) We know you love to party, Sagittarius, but now is not the time! Get-togethers are fine, but all-night ragers might land you or a beloved behind locked doors at the Marin County Jail. Venus goes retrograde on July 25, taking with it your flare for all things luxury. A cheese platter and bottle of red will do the trick to entertain your friends—you don’t need a bouncy house, slip ’n’ slide and a DJ.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Do you hear that sound, Capricorn? What started as a slow clap turned into a rally. Your boss hasn’t been doing his job lately and your co-workers need a leader, so step up to the plate. Give a motivational speech on July 22.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) If you want a VIP’s approval, get it now, Aquarius! Time is ticking until Uranus, the planet of surprise, goes retrograde on July 26. Get your ducks in a line, be bold and ask for what you really want. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck in limbo until early 2016. Make a list, check it twice and hand it over to your boss.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Really impressed with Kylie Jenner’s lips, Pisces? The plump-lip trend might not be going anywhere, but it’s not time to jump on board that ship. Plastic surgery is not in the cards for you until after the first week of October. Admire from a distance—unless you want to end up looking like Charro.
