Aries (March 21 – April 19) Grab the giant shades, Aries! It’s time to hide from the paparazzi. The month’s-end full moon on August 29 has your soul calling for solitude. Time to reflect by yourself will offer you the best advice to move forward on your path. Not that your friends don’t give solid advice—that tramp stamp does have excellent line work. Your ex’s name though, not so much of a great idea.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Where’s the confetti, Taurus?! Head to Party City and buy it in bulk on Aug. 28. You’re about to throw a party so extravagant, it makes the Great Gatsby’s gatherings look like your second grader’s eighth birthday party. Shell out for the fancy finger foods and cheeses that you can’t pronounce. It’s worth it.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Prepare to pop bottles, Gemini! The full moon this month on Aug. 29 brings with it the promotion you’ve been waiting for. Your title change isn’t the most important thing to remember—it’s that recognition is finally coming your way for all of the hard work you’ve put into your career path. From sweeping the floor to front row office parking!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Pack your bag—sleeping bag that is! You’re going camping, Cancer! You’re overdue for a little relaxation and there’s nothing better than becoming one with nature next to a lake. Take a break from that gluten-free, no-carb diet and dig into the marshmallows and Lagunitas IPAs. One weekend couldn’t ruin your diet, right?

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) Taking care of business, Leo! Ignorance is bliss—we know! And don’t you know it so well—you’re so easily swept away by decadence and shiny objects, but it’s time to get real. The full moon on Aug. 29 will have you looking at a problem without your rose-colored glasses. This time if you can’t handle the heat, you have to stay in the kitchen. You can handle it!

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Think big, Virgo! We’re not talking planning a garage sale or your average weekend bake sale. Schedule an interview, a company-wide presentation or a performance review. The full moon in Pisces on Aug. 29 will help shine some light on your achievements and all that you’re worth. Think of this day as a stepping-stone for your next raise. If you give a presentation, always start with an icebreaker!

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Feeling creative, Libra? Remember that quilting project you started in 1993? Well, thanks to the full moon on Aug. 29, it’s time to finally finish it! Can you believe it? The stars have aligned to help fight off your creative procrastination—any arts and crafts projects that you’ve been slacking on you’ll finish up, thanks to the full moon.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Stop hating on all the parents who post pictures of their children on Facebook every 45 minutes, Scorpio! Because guess what?! You and yours are expecting! So here’s what to expect: A little shock at first when you find out on Aug. 29. After that, it should be mostly smooth sailing. Or entertaining sailing, at least.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) What’s that bubbling under your house, Sagittarius? It’s your water heater exploding. Seriously—you’re in for your personal Titanic, thanks to the Aug. 29 full moon in Pisces. Do your best to prep for any possible water-related disasters. Move your computer away from the kitchen counter and “safety first” while showering. Sprained ankles aren’t a good look for anyone.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Leave the bills at home, Capricorn! It’s time to indulge—in drinks, travel or just time off. You’ve been overworking and over-strategizing, per usual. What’s the best medicine? Forgetting about the bills and going out and throwing a little cash around in whatever way you see fit. You only live once, and you can’t take cash to the grave—live it up!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) If you get an email saying that a distant cousin in another country wants to gift you $2 million—don’t fall for it, Aquarius! While your free spirit will feed the optimism behind the “offer,” you’ve got to remain grounded. The full moon will bring a faulty offer into your house of earned money. Make sure that you ask all of the appropriate questions before you sign on any dotted line. It’s probably too good to be true!

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) This is it, Pisces! Do you finally want to tell your mother-in-law how you really feel about her? Are you sick of your boss sending you passive-aggressive emails? The full moon on Aug. 29, in your sign, will send you the helpful energy to make a mountain out of any molehill—and clear the air. The stars are on your side if you decide to get in the ring!
